Samsung’s first Windows 10 tablet is now available in UK

Announced at CES 2016, Samsung’s Windows tablet-cum-laptop has finally made it to British shores.

Samsung has announced pre-order availability for the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S hybrid in the UK.

The 2-in-1 device lands as Samsung’s first-ever Windows 10 tablet, running Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 OS.

The device is available to pre-order right now, and goes on sale in the UK on March 17 – that’s tomorrow.

Like all 2-in-1s, the TabPro S ships with a physical keyboard that turns the tablet into a laptop replacement.

There’s also an optional Bluetooth stylus, which Samsung says offers similar functionality to Microsoft’s Surface Pen.

The tablet is a svelte affair at just 6.3mm thin, and boasts a 12-inch QHD display.

It also packs a 5,200mAh battery that Samsung claims charges up in 2.5 hours, with an alleged battery life of 10.5 hours.

“Interest in the Galaxy TabPro S since we announced at CES has been remarkable and we are hugely excited to be offering people the chance to pre-order this innovative device ahead of it going on general sale on March 17,” says Conor Pierce, VP of Samsung Mobile UK.

Pierce continues: “We believe this product balances the best of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab range with the wealth of features on the Windows 10 operating system for the most advanced 2-in-1 experience on the market.”

The Galaxy TabPro S comes in one colour (black), and costs £849 in the UK.
