The family tablet. Give it to someone for 5 minutes and all of the sudden the wallpaper is changed, apps are downloaded and rearranged, and there’s also now a password. And that’s just after one person’s had it; wait until everyone has had their turn.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab® 4 8.0 solves this problem with its Multi-User Mode. It allows different users to have individual profiles to log on to the tablet, which offers each person the ability to choose their own wallpaper, apps, password and more. The social media teen in the house can log in and have Twitter and Facebook widgets on their homescreen, and the chef in the family can have their recipe shortcuts and cooking apps on their homescreen. Each person in the family can enjoy his or her own personalized tablet experience.

A family tablet also calls for family entertainment. The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 can act as a TV guide and remote control with the WatchON app. Families can find their favorite shows, bookmark them, and set alerts so they never miss an episode. And the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 is XLTE Ready, which means families can take advantage of faster peak speeds and greater network capacity in cities coast to coast, whether for posting family photos online or watching a funny viral video together.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8-inch will be available online and in Verizon Wireless stores starting June 26 for $379.99, and for a limited time, the tablet will be available for $279.99 with a new two-year activation. Users will be able to add the tablet to their existing MORE Everything accounts for an additional $10 monthly access fee.
