Samsung Unveils New Tablets NotePro And TabPro At CES

Stocks in this article: AAPL BC94

The Consumer Electronics 2014 show has gotten underway in Las Vegas, Nevada, with some of the world's biggest tech manufacturers showing off the gadgets that they hope will find a place in our homes in the coming year.

One of the biggest unveils at the show so far has come from Samsung. The Korean electronics giant, associated with the Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones, unveiled two new tablets which it believes will offer both business and home users an excellent platform. The nearest challenger to Apple in both tablet and smartphone markets openly signaled its intention to become the market leader in 2014.

Samsung’s two new tablets

Samsung revealed the NotePro and TabPro, with both devices benefiting from an interface derived from Google's popular Android operating system. Samsung boasts that both of these tablets feature the most advanced and function-packed version of Android that has yet to be released. The Notepro is seen as the more premium of the two tablets, offering only one model featuring a 12.2" screen, while three TabPros will be put out featuring 8.4", 10.1" and 12.2" screens. Both tablets will go on sale later this year, with Samsung making the lofty claim that their new tablet portfolio will "redefine what a tablet can do".

These are devices that are not merely intended to set new standards of quality, but also to break records with regard to screen size. The Korean manufacturer stated that the 12.2" version of the two tablets will be the largest mainstream tablets available on the market, and will naturally offer a full HD display.

Could the first 4K tablet be coming soon?

Meanwhile, with both Samsung and Sony already fully committed to the already commercially available ultra-HD format, many people were wondering how long it will be before someone produces a tablet computer with four times the screen resolution of HD; a possibility which is already technologically, if not economically, viable. It may not be far away, though, as Toshiba unveiled the world's first 4K resolution laptop at CES.
