Bluetooth SIG certifies 18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View?
posted by Alan F. / Sep 15, 2015, 10:29 AM
Today, a document has surfaced revealing that the Galaxy View has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG. There isn't much information except the confirmation of the SM-T670 model number, and the revelation that Bluetooth 4.1 is on the tablet. Now that the Samsung Galaxy View has been Bluetooth certified, it does indicate that we could see the slate unveiled in the not too distant future.
With an 18.4-inch screen, it would seem that this model is being designed for watching entertainment-themed content, like streaming video, at home. Unlike the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro, the Samsung Galaxy View is a bit too unwieldy to be used out in the field by salesmen or researchers.

Says who? By conventional definition (bit.ly/1DRAZg2) and use case, it's still a tablet so long as it's form-factors is designed to take input directly on it's screen instead of a mouse/keyboard. Lay it on a table or tilt it back on it's stand and enjoy the touchscreen experience. In case you're thinking of it, no, meh touchscreen Laptops aren't designed to take input on their screen. The touchscreen on Laptop-only PC form-factors are gimmicky. When you try using them for a continuos touch experience, a touchscreen Laptop makes your ARMs tired and has terrible ergonomics compared to tablet form-factors.

Then Samsung will go ahead and overprice this low spec device and wonder why it isn't selling well. At 18.4 inches it should have a 4K display, a Tegra x1 or equivalent processor, 4GB of RAM, 12,000+ mAh battery, etc. The above specs make very little sense, unless it is going to be a sub $200 device.

Hm maybe it's an Android TV device where you can use your TV and the small 18.4 display to watch different camera angles for sports or have an extra monitor for multiplayer mobile games. Who knows. Either I don't think this will fly with the consumers just like the iPad pro probably won't. I think the Gear S2 will do well though.

Specs seem to disappoint. This sized tablet would be perfect if it runs Windows 10, has atleast 4GB RAM. Front facing speakers for tablets should be the standard and if it has an Intel Core M Processor it would be awesome. An 18" Android tablet? Eh.. Will see what Sammy has to offer

Limiting spec and battery, huge screen essentially lugging a PC monitor around. What is their target audience? Make me wonder which idiot is running Samsung. Look like the the handy work of the Apple executives Samsung has recently procured.
