Samsung Electronics America has launched the first tablets in its new flagship Galaxy Tab S line with world’s first high resolution Super AMOLED Display.
Available in 10.5 inch and 8.4 inch versions, Galaxy Tab S combines Samsung’s thinnest and lightest tablet design with the most advanced WQXGA Super AMOLED display.
In a statement Samsung said that the Wi-Fi versions of the Tab S 8.4 will be available for $399.99, while the Tab S 10.5 will be for $499.99. The tab will be available for purchase at Samsung, Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Office Depot, Office Max, PC Richard & Son, Sears, Tiger Direct and Wal-Mart.
Display is a key purchase driver for tablets, and the Galaxy Tab S was designed with screen quality and style in mind, to bring users the most immersive viewing experience. Tab S is one of the selected few Android devices in the U.S. to offer Netflix HD content viewing.
Tab S features a built-in fingerprint sensor, making multi-user access easy and secure. In Multi-User Mode, the fingerprint scanner allows for access to individual, customized user profiles. It also offers more apps compatible with Multi Window, allowing users to open up to two windows at once. The latest version of SideSync helps to make and receive calls from your tablet via the connection to your phone, as well as drag and drop files from the phone to Tab S.
Tab S includes premium content and services that are part of the integrated Galaxy ecosystem, which makes sharing, watching, collaborating, and working on multiple devices more seamless than ever. With WatchON users can access the program guide directly from the Tab S, or use it as a remote control.
The service provides Video on Demand helping users to find their favorite movies and TV shows with ease. The Galaxy Tab S is the first tablet compatible with Milk Music powered by Slacker, a free and ad-free radio service, offering an effortless and entertaining way to enjoy the music.
