Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy View touches down on U.S. soil; 18.4-inch slate priced at $599
Unveiled late last month, the 18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View can now be purchased in the U.S. The tablet comes with a built-in stand, and offers live television in some markets. There is even a handle on the back that makes it easier to carry from place to place. The screen features a 1080 x 1920 resolution, which works out to a rather low 119ppi pixel density. The Exynos 7580 chipset is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.6GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage.

A 2.1MP camera is found on the front of the slate, and a 5700mAh battery gives you eight hours of internet or video time. The cell allows you to listen to tunes for up to 299 hours. There is Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. The Galaxy View is available in your favorite color, as long as your favorite color is black. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

While eventually the model with cellular connectivity will hit the states, right now you're limited to buying the Wi-Fi only version. But that makes sense. It's not like you are going to be taking this on the go very often. At $599, you're not getting a specs monster, just a tablet with a very large screen, that might not be that practical to own.

Still, if you want to purchase the Samsung Galaxy View, you can do so directly from Samsung, by clicking on the sourcelink.
