Samsung has officially raised the curtain on a new tablet, the Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) which will serve as an affordable option in the company's portfolio. Considering its humble aspirations, the Galaxy Tab E comes with a relatively low price tag, but also packs some decidedly average specs.The device was unveiled in Taiwan earlier today and is just 8.5mm thin and 490 grams. The Tab E comes with a 9.6-inch TFT with 800 x 1280 resolution, a quad core Spreadtrum SC7730SE processor clocked at 1.3GHz, and 1.5GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB of storage space, micro SD card support to increase the capacity, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 2 megapixel front facer. A 5000 mAh battery should provide plenty of life considering the humble specs. In terms of software, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E comes pre-installed with Microsoft?s Office apps, while rather disappointingly Android KitKat is running the show instead of Lollipop. The slate is coming to Taiwan initially and will cost the same as $225 when it lands at the end of this month.
