Samsung Galaxy Book Launch: Price, Tech Specs and Availability

Samsung Electronics surprised everyone on its day at the Mobile World Congress when they announced a tablet that could give Microsoft Surface Book a run for its money. The tablet in question - The Samsung Galaxy Book.

The Samsung Galaxy book is designed for professionals who want to work on the go and need a device that can replace their bulky laptops and get the job done. The Galaxy Book is capable of turning from a tablet into a notebook in seconds, giving users the flexibility they need when they have to work.

The Galaxy Book is available in 10.6-inch and 12-inch models and runs on the Windows 10 operating system. Also included in the pack is a big keyboard with discernible keys that gives users the comfort of working with a traditional device.

Both these powerful tablets are powered by powerful 30 and 39-watt hour batteries that can last approximately 10 hours on a single charge. They can be recharged just as quickly thanks to Quick Charge support.

And just like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Tab, the Galaxy Book tablets also support the S Pen with a thinner tip that can make on-screen access a whole lot easier.
