Samsung launches ‘Galaxy TabPro S’ Windows 10 tablet

In a move which will mark the expansion of Samsung's Galaxy ecosystem to Microsoft's Windows 10 platform, the bigwig South Korean device maker has launched a new tablet dubbed 'Galaxy TabPro S.' The tablet will become available for purchase from Friday, March 18, 2016.

The new Samsung Galaxy TabPro S tablet is a fairly slim device, with a thickness of barely one-fourth of an inch. The tablet weighs only 1.5 pounds, and boasts a '2-in-1' design --- it is bundled with a full-size detachable keyboard cover with an integrated touchpad, to enable it to work as a laptop.

The cost of the Galaxy TabPro S tablet begins at $900. The tablet is available in two color options --- white and black.

Some of the key features of the Galaxy TabPro S tablet include a stunning 12-inch Super AMOLED display; an Intel Core M3 processor; 4GB or RAM; 128 GB solid state drive; USB-Type C connector; and front and rear 5-megapixel cameras.

With the Galaxy TabPro S tablet being the first Samsung tablet to run the Windows software, Gary Riding -- Samsung's SVP for mobile computing marketing -- said: "This is not any kind of walk back from Android at all. This is a vote for Windows, not a vote against (Android). Consumers are saying they want this choice."
