Samsung Reveals New Tablets at CES

Samsung took the wraps off two new lines of tablets at CES this week: the Galaxy NotePro and the Galaxy TabPro.

“What we always hear…is people want to do more with tablets,” said Nanda Ramachandran, VP of tablets and emerging business at Samsung, as he introduced the tablets.

Ramachandran vowed to hold these “pro” tablets to the company’s “highest standards.” He emphasized features that might appeal to professionals such as a Cisco WebEx conferencing app; a remote PC function to access files at home or the office; shared document editing tools; and the S Pen available with the NotePro tablet.

Both tablets sport 12.2-inch screens, though smaller versions are available. Various connectivity options will also be offered, including Wi-Fi only, 3G plus Wi-Fi and LTE.

The company said the new tablets will be available this quarter. Read more about the tablets’ specs here, or watch Samsung’s video from CES above.
