Samsung took centre stage at Madison Square garden yesterday to unveil their latest tablet, the GALAXY Tab S which comes in 8.4 and 10.5 inch size variants.

The event was dubbed “Tab Into Colour” and Samsung placed great emphasis on the tablet’s display. First up, resolution. Both variants come with a 2560 x 1600 WXGA display, giving a ppi of 359 for the 8.4 inch model while it’s 10.5 inch bigger brother has a ppi of 288, both very sharp displays.

    Looks like a great tablet except it only comes with 16GB as standard. I appreciate it’s expandable to 128GB but coming with 16GB kind of takes the edge off this as an upgrade from my current tablet. I read somewhere that future versions will have 32GB / LTE but I’m still patiently waiting.
