HTC trolls Samsung’s Galaxy S4 launch event with Pringles and hot cocoa

Samsung has every intention of going above and beyond with it’s Galaxy S4 launch. The company took over Radio City Music Hall in New York City, put together a fancy film-like introduction for its latest handset, and is treating it like the start of a rock tour. But you know what Samsung didn’t have? Hot chocolate. Don’t worry, HTC came ready to party.

Maybe HTC just happened to show up on the same corner that everyone going to the Samsung Galaxy S4 event was waiting at. Maybe the people it sent just happened to be equipped with the HTC One and HTC-branded hot chocolate dispenser. It could all be a total coincidence. Or it could be the best way to leech off another company’s spotlight. Not only did HTC hit up these people before they could get in the door to see the Galaxy S4, but they also warmed their hearts (and stomachs) with free cocoa. Well played, HTC.

There are tablet deals that slash the prices of devices that are designed to meet the requirements of creative professionals, but you can also take advantage of offers for tablets that are designed for simpler purposes. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a great example of the latter, and it's on sale from Walmart with a $150 discount that pulls its price down to a very affordable $199 from $349. It's not going to stay this cheap for long though, so if you're interested in this bargain you're going to have to complete your purchase as soon as possible.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024) is now available, but the 2022 release of the tablet, which is the one that's discounted on Walmart, remains a worthwhile purchase today as long as you manage your expectations. It's not going to challenge the best tablets in terms of performance as it only offers 4GB of RAM, but it's going to be more than enough for daily activities such as browsing the internet, catching up on social media, and watching streaming shows. The tablet only comes with 64GB of storage, but you can use a microSD card for up to 1TB of additional space.
