Sam­sung, $589. sam­ ★★★★ Long car trips and ex­tended fam­ily gath­er­ings re­quire a lot of en­ter­tain­ment. Mer­ci­fully, Sam­sung’s largest tablet de­liv­ers more than eight hours of it. The 10.1-inch tablet looks much like the model it re­placed, with the ex­cep­tion of a rounded, sil­ver edge that hides two speak­ers. It’s equipped with a thor­oughly up­graded 1.4GHz quad-core pro­ces­sor and 2GB of RAM for fast op­er­a­tion, and adds some ex­tras to the Google An­droid soft­ware. Those keen to cre­ate con­tent can slide out its sty­lus to write or draw on the screen, run two apps on the screen side-by­side in Multi-Screen mode, or open ‘‘float­ing’’ apps over oth­ers, in­clud­ing cal­en­dars, cal­cu­la­tors and clocks.
