Android 4.4 handles OS duties.

The 10.5-inch model weights 465g while the 8.4-inch is 294g heavy.

Also included in the two tablets is built-in security via fingerprint scanner and the usual selection of Samsung apps such as the "Papergarden" magazine service and a Samsung-reskinned version of the Kindle app.

Also launched with the tablets are a trio of companion accessories-- the Book Cover (offers a kickstand with 3 different display angles) and the self-explanatory Simple Cover and Bluetooth Keyboard.
