During the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show last January 6-9, 2016 at Las Vegas, NV, USA, Microsoft had been in the spotlight due to recent deals such as with Samsung, a known rival for various license related issues for similar products and systems. During CES, the riff had been finally buried with the introduction of Samsung Windows 10 devices.
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
The first on the list of Windows equipped Samsung gadgets include the Galaxy TabPro S, a dual tablet/laptop joining the bandwagon of similar devices like Microsoft’s Surface Pro and the iPad Pro. This device will be available by February and is expected to match the price of similar products.
The TabPro S measures 12 inches with a dual core 2.2GHz processor, 4GB RAM, an 5,200mAh battery which can last up to 10.5 hours with charging time of 2.5 hours, and works on both Windows 10 Home and Pro. You can also choose between two different versions in terms of SSD (128GB or 256GB) and Internet capability or weight (LTE data at 696g or Wi-Fi connectivity at 693g).
The keyboard is connected through a Pogo pin but can also work as a tablet. It also comes with a multi-port adapter and Bluetooth pen.
More Windows Powered Samsung Laptops
The first two of the Notebook 9, a series of light weight laptops will also run on Windows 10. Notebook 9 has a version which measures 15 inches and weighs 3 pounds with a battery life of 12 hours and another model which is 13.3 inches in length, 2 pounds in weight, and 10-hour battery life. Both of them runs on i7 with a 1920 x 1080 screen and has versions with 128GB (4GB RAM) or 256GB (8GB RAM). Like the TabPro S, pricing information is not yet available for these devices but both will also be released early this year.
