Apparently there’s something called “Windows 10” out there that you can run as an Operating System on tablets. Samsung have certainly become aware of it anyway, and they’re launching this, the new TabPro S with the OS baked in.
The new tablet features a 10.5 hour battery life and is powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core M processor which is dual core 2.2GHz. A clever multi-port adapter which has HDMI, USB type A and USB type C is all cleverly included. The screen isn’t bad either, it’s a 12” 2160×1440 Super AMOLED unit and there’s two 5 megapixel cameras for all your photography and selfie / video-calling needs.
Inside you’ll run either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro and it can connect via 4G so you can work and play anywhere. GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 4GB RAM and either a 128GB or 256GB SSD will be inside.
