The A-Class is Samsung's entry level to the world of tablets, and now there is finally a new model. The new Galaxy Tab A 10.5 takes on some of the details of the expensive S-Class, at least in appearance. We've had a chance to try it, and here's what...

Apple scored a real hit with the affordable iPad, and there are doubts whether the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 can keep up. But not everyone wants an iOS device, and in the Android segment the new Samsung tablet is quite competitive. Sound and display stand out...
