Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra takes aim at the PC’s weak points

People turn to large Android tablets for streaming and even work, and Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S8 family of tablets—with screens now up to 14.1 inches—offer massive, detailed displays for both consuming and creating content. While the large panels can feel a little awkward in tablet mode, Samsung’s laptop-like tablet looks absolutely amazing. Samsung will offer three tablets: the new 14.1-inch Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, the 12.4-inch Tab S8+, and the 11-inch Tab S8, with prices ranging from $699.99 for the S8 to more than $1,099.99 for the new Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. Samsung previously released only a pair of Samsung Galaxy S7 devices, so the new “Ultra” size is truly new…and there’s even a phone-like camera notch on it, too. Sales of tablets, like Chromebooks, surged during the height of the pandemic in 2020, then dropped—analyst firm IDC reported that tablet sales dropped 12 percent, to 46 million tablets. (IDC is owned by PCWorld’s parent company, IDG.) If it feels like there are few tablets besides those from Samsung and Apple, and Amazon’s Fire, that’s somewhat true, too. Worldwide, Apple dominates the tablet market, with 38 percent market share. Samsung is right behind, with 15.9 percent, then Lenovo and Amazon with 10.0 percent and 7.9 percent, respectively, which helps explain why Apple, Samsung, and Lenovo dominate store shelves. You’re probably going to need to purchase a keyboard cover (with kickstand) to accompany a Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.Adam Patrick Murray /... Continue reading at 'PC World'
