With its 18.4-inch Full HD display and truly portable entertainment focus, Samsung's new Galaxy View tablet aims to be a device that consumers can use almost anywhere to watch movies and videos, shop and much more. The Galaxy View, which will retail for $599.99 and be available in black starting Nov. 6 through Best Buy and other major retailers in the United States, gives users plenty of flexibility. It can be used lying down like a traditional tablet or leaned back or standing up using an integrated kickstand. The big-screen tablet features a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7580 processor, 2GB of memory, 32GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot that accepts storage cards of up to 128GB, stereo speakers and a 2.1-megapixel camera. The machine, which runs on the Android 5.1 "Lollipop" operating system, also includes 4G LTE and WiFi capabilities, as well as a SIM card slot so users can bring movies with them when traveling. The tablet's 5,700mAh Li-Ion battery provides up to about 8 hours of video viewing or up to about 299 hours of music playing and Internet use.
