Samsung’s top-end Android tablet, the Galaxy NotePro, will turn up in Singapore on February 22 for a rather hefty price of S$1,198 for the 4G or LTE (Long Term Evolution) version.
The Wi-Fi-only one will cost a mere S$100 less at S$1,098 and will show up in shops here on March 1.
The tablet comes with a large 12.2-inch screen boasting a sharp 2,560 x 1,600 resolution and looks to be aimed at users who fancy replacing their laptops with a tablet for everyday office productivity tasks like word processing.
With that large a screen, the NotePro lets users multi-task by opening up four windows or apps at once, mimicking what a PC can offer. It also comes with business-friendly software such as Cisco WebEx Meetings that lets users share a screen easily.
On top of finger gestures, the NotePro will support the Korean manufacturer’s S Pen stylus. Note-taking should be easier with it, as well as random scrawls on the tablet screen.
As part of a launch promotion, Samsung is throwing in a free Bluetooth keyboard worth S$138 and a free book cover costing S$98 to sweeten the deal. Buy it at Samsung stores and major IT stores and get an additional Galaxy Gear worth S$398, free.
