The Best Cool New Gadgets at CES 2014 – Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2

ces-2014-cool-new-gadgetsTablets are everywhere at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show — cheap tablets, tablets aimed at kids, hybrid tablets and gaming tablets. But while not all tablets can be called cool new gadgets, Samsung’s new technology sure can be.

Yes, the tech giant has been stealing the eyeballs at CES 2014 with its super-sized Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, already racking up awards from TechRadar and other sites. After several years of focusing on small, cheap tablet in an effort to win the battle for market share among price-conscious consumers, Samsung is making a grab for the business and prosumer tablet market.

A 7-inch tablet or even a 10-inch tablet is simply too small for many professional users. But offer a 12.2-inch Android tablet with a WQXGA display and smart-pen capability (along with the ability to add on a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard), and you have a device that just might realistically replace a laptop.

Even better, Samsung doesn’t have to fight Apple and its best-selling iPad for this niche — at least not yet.
