Lately, we've seen a lot of tablets in the 8-inch range, so obviously they have a larger screen than say 7-inch tablets but are a bit more portable than say 10 inches out there. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4-inch is the latest tablet to hit that tablet-size sweet spot. It has a 2560x1600 resolution screen, a micro SD expansion slot and IR blaster so you can use it as a remote control, micro USB for charging and file transfers as well. There's also the faux stitching from some recent Samsung products and at 0.7 pounds, it's still pretty light. It's also thin and feels really comfortable in the hands and I for one like the kind of leathery backside though it does a lot of grease. There's an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back and a 2-megapixel camera on the front like many Samsung cameras, they're decent but neither takes especially impressive pics. There's a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor inside, so gaming performance is as smooth as it gets on a tablet currently. The screen is incredibly dense with pixels, colors or vibrant and the viewing angles wide. HD movies run smoothly and look great. Samsung's TouchWiz interface has changed a lot over the last few years and has only gotten better with each iteration and this is the best version yet. All the shortcuts and customization options are here, the amount of settings available staggering a Samsung keys are all well organized. The new magazine UX interface is best described as having a widget-based front with flip board underneath and that it actually uses flipboard for its interface. In case you're not a fan of flipboard, you can customize the magazine UX to your liking and minimize its footprint if the traditional Android interface is preferable. There's also a ton of poor activity software for WebEx meeting to a built-in file manager to e-meeting, Hancom Office and remote PC. The Tab Pro starts at $400 for 16 gigabytes and there's a $500 version with 32 gigabytes of storage. Check out my full review at cnet.com for more information and a final recommendation.
