Wirefly Goes Hands-on With New Samsung Galaxy NotePro & TabPro At CES2014

by Scott Lewis on January 13, 2014

While at CES 2014, I was able to get my hands on some great new technology. One of my favorites was the new lineup of Samsung tablets. The lineup consists of a new Galaxy NotePro 12.2, TabPro 12.2, TabPro, 10.1, and TabPro 8.4.

The NotePro 12.2 and TabPro 12.2 are almost identical except that the NotePro comes equipped with the integrated Samsung S-Pen. The S-Pen is a stylus that helps you to navigate the tablet without using your fingertips and allows you to do some special tricks. When you remove the S-Pen from its home on the top right-hand side of the NotePro 12.2, the Air Command window pops up on the display. From the Air Command window you can write memos to yourself, snip a picture from the display to save or share, search from content stored on your device, and even grab contact information to store in your phonebook. Other than the Samsung S-Pen, there is really no difference between the NotePro 12.2 and the TabPro 12.2. The TabPro 10.1 and TabPro 8.4 are almost the exact same as the TabPro 12.2 only in a smaller case. However, because they are physically smaller there is limited space to put the battery so they come with a smaller battery under the back cover.
