Samsung's tablet event has gotten under way in New York, and as we have been expecting, the announcement is for two new top-of-the-line tablets in Samsung's stable. These are the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5. The two new tablets are essentially updates to the previous Galaxy Tab Pro line, but with a new name to bring more continuity to its products...

"The first Super AMOLED Tablets"? What about the Galaxy Tab 7.7?

I think Samsung mentioned 'high resolution' in there as well. So it's 'the worlds first high resolution Super AMOLED tab'

Oh and where are the blackberry tablets?Stuck in 2011.The galaxy note 10.4 (2014) also has the same resolution,your comment is useless,your fanboyism too. These are the first high-res AMOLED tablets. Please be more informed before you post stupid things like this.

You could see the tablet lag in his hand as it was rotating the display. Such a shame.

When DJ Lee was giving an overview of the tablet's features on stage, as he was waving it around the screen rotated a couple times. The lag and dropped frames in that simple animation was painfully obvious.

Tab PRO series was Feb....now we got Tab S. Whats sup with the these release patterns?
I got my Tab Pro 8.4, but I use it for reading my textbooks...so this whole entertainment and watching movies with Amoled doesn't amuse to me.

More tablets for more choices. Like I'd take a Tab S 10.5, NotePro 12.2 and a TabPro 8.4.

Samsung wouldn't be Samsung with no lag. Let's embrace that 'feature'.

Would like 2 get the 8.4 if it was cheaper. For that kind of money they could have at least used a 5422

Not for me, i literally cried for a snapdragon note 3, Exynos turned me off. Snapdragon is always a better chipset, balanced, efficient, LTE and even better ISPs.

Finally a tablet that can give xperia tablet z2 a run for its money, and actually beat it.
