Samsung has been unsuccessful so far in the tablet segment. However, with the release of Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 in October 2013 and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, which was released in February 2014, the company has finally got it right. Both these tablet PC’s are competent to compete with its archrivals, the iPad series and with other tablets, currently available in the market.


Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 encompasses a massive 12.2-inch screen, as compared to the standard 10-inch display of other tablets.
