Samsung’s new Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series includes four models – Note Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 12.2, 10.1 and 8.4. The new tablet lineup features premium materials, a suite of applications and services, unparalleled displays, a unique interface designed to simplify access and discovery of content, and many new productivity tools.

“The Note Pro and Tab Pro create a more meaningful user experience at the intersection of work and play,” said Nanda Ramachandran, vice president of emerging business at Samsung Telecommunications America. “With four completely revamped models featuring unique software innovations and impressive displays, these tablets offer users a premium Galaxy experience.”

The Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series tablets will be available in two color options, black and white.

“The Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series deliver an unparalleled tablet experience,” said Travis Merrill, vice president of tablet marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “As mobile usage habits have evolved, so have our tablet offerings. This Pro series is designed to meet the distinctive needs of today’s mobile consumer, whether at home, on-the-go or at work.”

Vibrant, Large Displays

Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2 are the world’s first 12.2-inch tablets with high-resolution WQXGA (2560 x 1600) Super Clear LCDs and widescreen aspect ratios of 16:10, with more than 4 million pixels. Engineered with 3GB of RAM and a larger screen for optimal viewing, the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2 give consumers the power and screen real estate to view full HD videos and perform various tasks on a dazzling and vibrant display.

Developed and designed specifically for the 12.2-inch Note Pro and Tab Pro, Multi Window lets users view up to four applications simultaneously, offering improved multitasking. The Multi Window feature enhances productivity with impressive quick controls, like drag and drop for easy cut and paste and one-touch presets, to quickly launch commonly used Multi Window app configurations.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 display is the most pixel dense tablet on the market. HD video, images and games take full advantage of the high pixel count, giving users a display quality not found on any other tablets in its class. With a Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz quad core processor, the Tab Pro 8.4 is built to handle high-powered games and video.

Pro Series Amps Up Productivity

All tablets in the Note Pro and Tab Pro series are outfitted with Magazine UX, Samsung’s innovative new user interface that’s built right into the home screen layout. This customizable layout brings users’ favorite and most-frequented content—games, notes, apps, e-mail and more—to the forefront, offering direct access to content with a single touch.

To enhance productivity and give users a more effective typing medium, Note Pro, Tab Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 10.1 feature a virtual keyboard that mimics the size and appearance of a physical keyboard, leveraging haptic feedback and hotkeys to offer users a more accurate and familiar typing experience. It includes directional keys and copy/paste functionality built right into the keyboard which allows you to create and edit documents more efficiently.

The Note Pro also includes Samsung’s S Pen, offering the precision and responsiveness that customers love, as well as features such as handwriting-to-text, Air Command, and Pen Window.

Both the Note Pro and Tab Pro come equipped with applications designed for optimal professional performance and mobile productivity. Remote PC allows easy access and control of a home or office computer directly through a Pro tablet, while a downloadable and touch optimized version of Hancom Office gives users the ability to create, edit and save documents, spreadsheets and presentations with the same functionality you would find on a PC. Samsung e-Meeting provides collaboration capabilities by giving users the ability to share content during a meeting without having to access a central server or network.

These devices come with a powerful and productive Samsung accessory ecosystem that includes keyboard covers, the S Action Mouse and USB LAN Hub adapters along with a variety of third party accessories including Bluetooth keyboards from ZAGG, Belkin and Logitech.
