Samsung Rolls Out Massive 18.4-Inch Galaxy View Tablet

Electronics giant Samsung has just rolled out the largest tablet on the market. The Samsung Galaxy View comes in at 18.4 inches. Call it a super tablet.

Although Dell has a portable all-in-one deskop thatEUs 18.4 inches, Samsung takes the prize for the largest pure-play tablet form factor. The Galaxy View is also the largest Android device on the market. It sports a video-optimized user interface, which seems to make sense given its large screen size.

Learning From Apple?

We caught up with Roger Entner, a principal analyst at Recon Anaytics, to get his thoughts on the new Galaxy View. He told us Samsung is moving toward a large tablet screen to keep up with -- or in this case surpass -- the Joneses. The Joneses in this case: Apple. The company is rolling out its 12.9-inch iPad Pro next month, which beats Samsung's current 12.2-inch tablet.

EUYou donEUt want to give the opponent a leg up or let them have a different form factor that could be successful,EU Entner said. EUWe all have seen the difference between having a large-screen phone and not having a large-screen phone.EU

Entner said that Apple suffered significantly for more than two years because it didnEUt have a large-screen phone to compete with SamsungEUs phablets. Finally, Apple saw the light and released iPhone 6 models that allowed it to take back some lost ground. Suddenly, Apple is on a roll again, he said.

The Minus 20 Percent

Of course, a 12.9-inch tablet is one thing. An 18.4-inch tablet is quite another. Will anyone even...
