SYDNEY, Australia – April 1 2016 – Samsung Electronics Australia has today announced the availability of the Galaxy TabPro S, which combines Samsung’s latest mobile technology with the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system together in a beautifully crafted 2-in-1 tablet format. The Galaxy TabPro S gives Australians access to laptop PC functionality in a sleek and stylish design.
The Galaxy TabPro S balances the best of the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem experience with the wealth of features that are delivered through the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. From a Super AMOLED display, engineered to deliver a richer and defined viewing, to a long lasting and ultra-fast charging battery, the device follows the pedigree Australians are accustomed to when using a Samsung Galaxy product.
“The Galaxy TabPro S strikes a perfect balance between Samsung’s renowned premium Galaxy range of devices and the depth of amazing features and functionality delivered through Microsoft Windows 10,” said Prasad Gokhale – Vice President, IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Australia. “This device will give Australians the ultimate mobile working and entertainment experience, whether they are creating or consuming content on the go.”
Available from today as a Wi-Fi variant, the TabPro S range will also include a 4G capable variant, to be launched in the near future, which will feature Cat 6 LTE optimised for Australian carrier networks.
