The Samsung Galaxy NotePro and TabPro truly demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with extraordinarily versatile product offerings, tailored to tablet users of every description,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics.
Along with these new tablets, Samsung is also introducing the new Magazine UX, which is being used in the NotePro and TabPro tablets. Magazine UX has been optimised for the large-screen size available on tablets.
“The UX enables users to organize their favorite content in an easy-to-use dashboard with automatic feed or news updates and then quickly access the most frequently used apps for a more comfortable reading experience. By utilizing a screen size that is more comparable to traditional magazine-sized material, content is easier to view in its original format when reading digital magazines or e-books,” Samsung explains.

Samsung is also offering premium content worth $700 from Bitcasa, Bloomberg Businessweek?, Blurb, Cisco WebEx Meetings, Dropbox, Easilydo Pro for Tablet, Evernote, Hancom Office for Android, LinkedIn, LIVESPORT.TV, NY Times, Oxford Advanced Learner’s A-Z, and Sketchbook Pro for free with these tablets.
