Samsung is ready to launch its new tablet in US .It’s releasing 8- and 9.7-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab A, a low-cost slate whose centerpiece is an iPad-like 4:3 aspect ratio that gives you more breathing room when you’re browsing the web or reading a book.


As far as the specs goes they have 1.2GHz quad-core chip, 1,024 x 768 screen, 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front shooter, but they do carry Samsung’s lighter-weight software loadout, including bundled Microsoft apps.You’ll also get between 16GB to 32GB of storage, depending on the model.

The Tab A will reach American shops on May 1st starting at $230 for the 8-inch model, and $300 for the 9.7-inch version. And don’t worry, cost-conscious Galaxy Note fans, Samsung hasn’t forgotten about you: a version with a bundled S Pen is due on May 17th for $350.
