Samsung took the wraps off of their Galaxy Tab S tablets today at the Tab Into Color event. Both the 8.4 and 10 inch tablets come with plenty of new features, but they also come with a wealth of premium content accessible by users. We already told you about the partnership with Marvel that brings Tab S owners three months of free access to Marvel Unlimited that contains an expansive library of 15,000 plus Marvel Comics, and along with that we also see tons of other apps and content bundled in that Tab S owners get access to. Samsung is debuting their magazine service on the Tab S line called Papergarden, proposing an optimized viewing environment for digital magazines with true-to-life colors coming alive right on the screen from page to page in a huge selection of popular magazines.
Samsung has also teamed up with more than 30 different leading mobile content providers to bring users tons of content straight to their Tab S devices like Netflix in high definition, and Kindle for Samsung which will bring a free book to Tab S owners every single month as part of Samsung’s book deals. Quite possibly being the most surprising thing in all of the content that Samsung is providing to users of the Tab S, is the stuff they’ll get thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Google Play. Through the Google Play partnership Tab S owners will get access to the movie Gravity and a range of other movie and entertainment content, and a fairly wide selection of magazines and books through the “my library” widget.
Entertainment and fun stuff isn’t the only content accessible by users though. There is plenty of productivity stuff packed in as well, beginning with Samsung’s call forwarding feature via SideSync 3.0 that was demoed at the event, and multi-user mode will allow different users within the same household to create their own specialized profile for use if the Tab S is to be shared between more than one user. This plays well into the newly revamped Fingerprint scanner technology that Samsung has built into the Tab S as well for safe and secure access to those personalized profiles, with support for up to eight different fingerprints so the entire family can share one device. Quick Connect also makes an appearance in the Tab S tablets for quick and easy sharing with nearby devices, and the kids mode should help parents feel better about letting their children use the tablet since it can only allow access to kid specific and kid friendly apps and content. Samsung usually packs a lot of content into their products and they have spared no expense with the Tab S devices, continuing their delivery of lots of content packages and bundles through Samsung gifts, partnerships and various features of the device.
