The era of the tablet is nigh! With tablet technology now well past its infancy and many new tablets exceeding levels of performance and functionality hitherto only seen in laptops and PCs, now is the perfect time to join this decade’s computing revolution!
2014 is set to be a huge year for tablets, so to help you keep your finger on the pulse of the market; here are the ones to keep an eye on in the coming months.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Starting off our roundup is the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Samsung’s new tablet aimed primarily at business users.
With a truly enormous 12.2-inch super clear LCD capacitive touchscreen (including a multitouch capacity that can recognise up to 10 fingers at a time) and running on Samsung’s new v4.4 KitKat version of the celebrated Android operating system, the Note Pro is a considerably more advanced than previous Samsung tablets.
This, coupled with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor and a plethora of features aimed at the business user including a 64gb hard drive and an S-pen stylus, makes this the go-to tablet for the fast-paced individual, set for release on February 13th. Read a review here.
The Google Nexus 10 2
A level of mystery shrouding the release of new technology products is not uncommon, however the rumours surrounding the highly anticipated Nexus 10 2 are currently growing to fever pitch as industry analysts furrow their brows in an effort to ascertain what Google’s next release will be following previous iterations of the highly successful Nexus tablet range.
Leaked details point to a 2,560×1,600 pixel, PLS technology screen hiding a SnapDragon 800 chipset beneath; excellent news for tech-heads as this the same amazingly fast chipset used in the Nexus 5 and 7. Given Google’s predisposition for a lack of fanfare around the release of its products, this could be released at any time. Keep your eye on the tech columns!
The Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300
Last month Asus revealed its Transformer Book Duet TD300, a tablet-laptop hybrid with, among other things, the ability to switch between Windows and Android operating systems at the touch of a button. Boasting an Intel Core i7 processor that puts many ultrabooks to shame, an obscene 1tb of storage and a beautiful high-definition 13inch display, the future appears to have truly arrived!
Whether you’re reading and working on your daily commute, relaxing at home playing some heart-pounding casino games or viewing your favourite media, sound blasting through the two speakers powered by ASUS’ SonicMaster technology, Asus’ new release looks to be a force in the world of Tablet computing when it is released at the end of March.
