Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen goes on sale in the U.S.

On October 28, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, which debuted in South Korea a month ago, will begin selling in the U.S., priced at $350. The tablet features Samsung's S-Pen, presumably the latest version that rolled out with the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. This will give the tablet an edge over competing devices, making it more suitable for note-taking, drawing, and enhancing functionality and navigation.

Otherwise, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7870 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage in the base model. The 10.1-inch display has a 1920 x 1200 resolution and there are an 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front cam, and a 7300mAh battery. The tablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

However, the device lacks a fingerprint scanner, and there's no LTE connectivity or Samsung Pay support. If you can live with these omissions, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 presents a solid offering for $350 – especially when you don't have much of a choice for Android tablets, as most manufacturers have lost interest in this category of devices – along with consumers, to be frank.

they should make 2in1 win10 tablet with those specs and price.. and students will love it :-/ (change that processor to M3 or better, give it win10, at least 64GB storage, and keyboard cover, and sell it for $400 :D)

I know it's all opinion but this button placement works better for landscape IMO. Buttons are on the right side where my thumb is, no need to reach my hand in to the bottom middle of the device.
