Verizon is touting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 as a family tablet by highlighting its Multi-User feature which allows creation of multiple accounts for different people, allowing them to arrange apps to their liking and also set a custom wallpaper, a password and more. Well, this capability is present on most tablets running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and above. The carrier is also promoting the device for family entertainment by leveraging the capabilities of the preloaded WatchON app.
