Tablets are useful little (or big) things. One can browse the internet, watch movies, type documents and much more with them. But many tablets are restricted to being WiFi-only devices, rendering their online capabilities useless while on the go. But Verizon has a remedy for that with its new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, which is being marketed as a tablet for the family.

So what makes it so special? Verizon claims that it’s the multi-user mode, something that Android has had for a couple versions now. Nonetheless, the feature comes in handy when families are sharing a tablet, as it allows each person to have their own pre-sets, apps, and personal data. Other than that, the tablet is fairly normal including specs like an 8-inch 1280×800 display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD card slot, 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 4,450mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s TouchWiz atop. It’s also ready to use Verizon’s XLTE network which means that you’ll see even faster data speeds should you be in an XLTE market.

Availability begins on June 26, with the tablet featuring a limited time offer of being just $279 with a two-year contract. Without a contract, it’ll go for $380.
