Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line has entered its fourth iteration and here is the crown jewel of the lineup, the 10.1 in Galaxy Tab 4. The tablet is available in several configurations, like the WiFi-only T530 and the 3G-capable T531 variants.

But all version of the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 share a specification set, from the display to the storage allocation to the system memory.

At its heart is the Qualcomm APQ8026 processor, a quad-core 1.2GHz chip that should keep your tasks humming along. This is backed by 1.5GB of system memory and 16GB of storage, both standard across the 10.1 lineup. There’s an option to add up to 64GB of additional storage by making use of a microSD card.

The Galaxy Tab 4’s touchscreen display is a clear WXGA screen, a 1280 x 800 panel that offers up bright colours and an excellent viewing angle. The 10.1-inch size, of course, means that whatever you’re doing on the Tab 4 will be easy to read and/or see.

But tablets often hinge on the battery life and here Samsung claims a powered-on time of up to 10 hours with intensive use (like watching video) thanks to the 6800mAh battery that they’ve included with this unit.

But why stop there? This Android 4.4 tablet features dual camera, front and back, sized 1.3MP and 3MP respectively. They’re not going to make your DSLR nervous at any point but they’re more than enough for video chat (your most likely use) or taking quick snaps on the go.

As for connectivity, we’ve already touched on this. The T530 tablet features WiFi only in terms of internet use, supporting the 802.11 a/b/g/n standard. The T531 versions feature the same, with the added benefit of 3G access via your SIM card. Both variants have Bluetooth 4.0 LE as standard as well.

Why do you need one? Everyone needs a tablet, whether it’s as a laptop alternative or just a home media/internet consumption device. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 inch is a way to get the size and features you need without breaking the bank.
