While many enterprises are shifting to a mobile-first strategy, IT leaders also continue the search for devices that provide that perfect balance between mobility and productivity. The introduction of 2-in-1 tablets with Windows 10 Professional offer a smart alternative that combines the key capabilities of laptops and tablet in one device.
When mapping out an enterprise mobility strategy, it’s all about assessing the individual needs of your user groups. For some employees operating in the field, a smartphone or smaller tablet may be sufficient for accessing apps, inputting data or capturing signatures. Other users who are stationary – in a call center, for example – may need a laptop combined with the comfort and convenience of a large monitor and other peripherals.
But for an increasing number of workers, a 2-in-1 tablet provides an ideal balance. Consider corporate and financial services users visiting customers in the field and giving mobile presentations, or retail sales agents able to serve customers through catalogue displays and mobile transactions, or a healthcare professional carrying their 2-in-1 tablet from room to room to interact with patients as well as be functional for end-of-day reporting from the office or home.
At CES 2016, Samsung announced its Galaxy TabPro S, a new 2-in-1 tablet engineered for professionals that require that balance of business productivity and mobility. It combines Samsung’s innovation in mobility with the wealth of productivity features on Windows 10 Pro to deliver a unique tablet experience for enterprise users.
Samsung’s design team made some smart choices in developing the Galaxy TabPro S, providing a full-sized, detachable keyboard with a flexible hinge incorporated into an ultra-thin form factor designed to allow professionals to have full productivity in or outside the office. It’s also the first Windows tablet to feature a Super AMOLED display, delivering deeper color contrast and precise details for a best-in-class viewing experience. A fanless design and Intel Core M processor enables the Galaxy TabPro S to be the thinnest and lightest Windows tablet on the market today at just 6.3 millimeters and 693 grams.
In combination with a Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy TabPro S provides a powerful productivity kit for the mobile worker.
