After that Microsoft announced Surface Pro with 12.3 inch screen, but it’s not looked weird because the company promoting that device as ” a tablet that replaces your laptop”. Now it’s Samsung’s turn.

Do you really need this device?
Well, that depends on your needs and how you define a “tablet” should be. Even though it has massive HD display and multimedia experience will be quite great, it is not portable. For some people, it would be hard to carry this device. Because size is the most important form factor for a tablet device. But if you are okay with this size and its other features, you can definitely give this a try.
