One of Canada’s leading providers of mobile technology wants to give consumers the productivity of a laptop with the portability of a tablet.
Samsung Electronics Canada announced today that the Galaxy TabPro S will be available in Canada. The Galaxy TabPro S runs the Windows 10 operating system and includes a full keyboard and a 12 inch Super 2160 x 1440 AMOLED touch screen display.
“Our world is more mobile than ever and there is a demand for a device that meets both the personal and business consumption needs of Canadians,” said Paul Brannen, senior vice president mobile at Samsung Electronics Canada, in a statement sent to MobileSyrup.
He goes on to say that the two-in-one design meets the demands of both workplace and on-the-go lifestyles.
The device is rated to last 10.5 hours, Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana and Microsoft Edge, which offers the ability to stream Xbox One content to Windows PCs. The device is .25 inches (6.3 mm) thin and weighs just 1.5 pounds (0.68 kg).
