Samsung is ready to unveil their new line of tablet devices tomorrow at an event in New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The Galaxy Tab S tablets will come equipped with 2560 x 1600 Super AMOLED displays which should really raise the bar for a tablet device. To help protect the fancy new screens, buyers may be interested in Samsung’s official flip covers for the new tablets. The new covers utilize some proprietary connectors embedded in the back panels of the new tablets. It appears that at least initially the covers will come in a choice of two colors, a shade of white and another dark gray in color. The design appears to carry over the dimpled, band-aid look of Samsung’s recent device covers although it is more subtle.

Hit the break and check out a gallery of some images of the new flip covers obtained by SamMobile.

Samsung prepping 4K tablets for end of 2014, already has an impressive prototype

samsung_4K_tablet_prototype_preview

In just a few months, Samsung will have tablets with 4K displays. The company was caught showcasing a 12.2-inch tablet with a 4K display at the ongoing French Open. But the reason to show the tablet was to tout LTE broadcasting, not the tablet itself. In the demonstration, the capability of having multiple applications running at once was shown (above). As we all know, this is possible on many of Samsung’s products.

At the time of the demonstration, the prototype was working with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor; however, upon being released near the end of the year, it is expected that a Snapdragon 805 will be inside due to its 4K display enhancements. Now you just have to wait and see when Samsung will bring it to the market.

AT&T offering $50 of Google Play credit after purchasing new phone or tablet with new contract

google play att deal

Well folks, the title says it all.

AT&T will be giving away $50 of Google Play credit to customers who purchase a new phone or tablet (with a new 2 year contract) from now until June 17.

After you purchase a new device, you’ll have to redeem a code. From that point, the code will expire on May 15, 2015. You’ll have to have (or create) a Google Wallet account before you redeem the code, though. The cool thing about the deal is that you can purchase up to 10 new devices and you’ll get the $50 credit on all of them, so you can buy new phones for the whole family.

It is an online only deal though, so make sure you don’t make your orders through the store if you want to take advantage of the deal.

Samsung, Barnes & Noble announce Galaxy Tab 4 Nook

Samsung nook

Just when you thought you’d heard of the Barnes and Noble Nook for the last time, here it is again, but in the form of a co-branded tablet with Samsung.

The two companies announced the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook today, which will come with a customized Nook UI. The interface prioritizes reading as a top use for the device and emphasizes the availability of content.

It obviously doesn’t offer any truly new content though, since any Android user can simply download the existing Nook app.

We’re expecting to see an improved software package though, so it’s just a matter of time before we get our hands on it to truly check it out. The tablet will have a 7-inch display, but other specs are not yet available. Hit the break for the full press release.
