Being in the numbertwo spot with a tight 20.4 percent market share, Samsung is hitting early this year at the CES 2014 with a new family of tablets. We're not only talking about the same old and familiar Samsung tablet here, as the company showcased a duo of 12-inch slates - the Galaxy NotePro and the Galaxy TabPro.
Both sporting 12.2-inch displays, they support a WQXGA (16:10) display that proffers a Retina-breaking 2,560 x 1,600 resolution. Samsung is also announcing a new Magazine UX that offers an optimize tablet experience for its users - new dashboard with feeds and newsupdates.
On top of that, both tablets props a feature called "Multi Window" which allows users to split the screen into four different windows. There's also a virtual keyboard that is said to be leveraging haptic feedback to produce a more realistic typing experience. Of course, expect the popular Samsung S Pen included on the Galaxy NotePro.
Moreover, Samsung also unwrapped a new 10.1-inch Galaxy TabPro and an 8.4-inch Galaxy TabPro. All four tablets are running Android 4.4KitKatout of the box.
It's worth noting that Apple was rumored to be working on a 12-inch iPad this year. Samsung clearly has the upper hand when it comes to hardware, as it manufacturesits own displays and parts. Apple, on the hand, is a little late, but has an edge when it comes to design and features that happen to be well-thought.
