Samsung want you to do away with your PC and have a Tab or two instead

12 February 2014

Bitterwallet - Samsung Galaxy Tab Rumour has it, that Samsung are going to launch the Galaxy S5 at the 'Unpacked' event later this month.

It'll be the Samsung that has a curved screen and it seems that there'll be two versions to get your hands on. It has been much muttered about and there's a lot of noise about them swapping the Amoled screen for an LCD one instead.

Further rumours state that the device will have a 16 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front camera with Snapdragon, as well as an improved processor. They won't be having something that scans the iris of your eye though.

So what are Samsung up to? Well, while many - notably Apple - are talking about a world where there are no desktop PCs, Samsung are joining suit and releasing a load of products that aim to replace notebooks, desktops and laptops. Their new products - the new Galaxy TabPro and the Galaxy NotePro - show that they think the future lies in having a load of tablets and related devices.

The new tablets go on sale at the end of this February and the beginning of March and the high-end versions of the new products will have a large 12.2-inch display. Seems like a gamble as previous attempts at releasing huge tablets didn't go down too well at all. Samsung are betting that the more tabs they release, the better.

The new devices will be fitted with Office-esque programs that work on Android (called Hancom Office) and they'll, for the most part, be compatible with their Microsoft counterparts.

Are Samsung correct that we're all moving toward a solely touchscreen world or are they jumping the gun? Are offices going to start binning off all their desktops in favour of giant tablets? Seems unlikely.

    Tablets are okay for consumers of content, but for the creators of content, the desktop is still irreplaceable. Just the thought of trying to use Illustrator or Photoshop on a tablet makes me have one of my turns.

    Judging by the amount of typing errors in his articles I reckon Mof uses a tablet.
