Samsung has already succeeded in trumping Apple, at least in the smartphone category. But as far as tablets are concerned, the Cupertino-based technology lion is still the king, with 29.6 percent market share in Q3 last year, according to a report by IDC.

Being in the number two 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 news updates.

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 4.4 KitKat out 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 manufactures its 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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
