A handful of new Windows 10 devices at CES
Samsung announced at CES in Las Vegas a couple of premium Windows 10 devices including a Galaxy tablet.
Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is a premium 2-in-1 that runs Windows 10 Pro. It features a 12-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. The first non-Android Galaxy device to date is super thin (just 6.3 mm) and light (just 693 grams).
The TabPro S comes with a full-sized keyboard that also acts like a protective cover. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is powered by a 6-gen Intel CoreM processor with 4GB of RAM. It will be available with either 128 or 256 GB of SSD, 5200 mAh battery and two 5MP cameras. Samsung hasn’t revealed details about pricing and availability.
In addition to the tablet, Samsung presented two super-light laptops – a 13-inch and a 15-inch Samsung Notebook 9. The 13-inch variant weighs the ridiculous 840 grams and has Intel i5 or i7 processor, 4 or 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage, FULL HD resolution. The 15-inch Samsung Notebook 9 is just 1.29 kg and comes with similar specs. These two Ultrabooks will launch in early 2016, but there is no word on pricing.
Toshiba also unveiled in Las Vegas a new Windows 10 tablet for $569.99. The device is called dynaPad and has a 12-inch Full HD TruBrite display. Toshiba dynaPad is thin and light, almost like the Samsung’s model, has an Intel Atom processor, 4GB of RAM, microSD, 8MP rear, 2 MP front camera, and an optional keyboard & stylus.
The Japanese company will start selling the dynaPad through Microsoft’s online and physical stores later in January.
