Samsung Galaxy View coming this November for 650 Euros
The XXL tablet will be available starting mid-November 2015 for 650 Euros. This WiFi-only version will come in Black and White color options and measures an immense 452 x 276 x 119 mm and an equally impressive 2.65 kg weight.
Samsung wants the Galaxy View to close the gap between traditional TV sets and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones by offering a new portable entertainment experience. Sitting on the couch with a 42-inch TV on the other side of the living room may soon become a thing of the past if the Galaxy View takes off.
The stand on the back of the tablet allows for more versatility and up to two positions: Upright for video playback or flat for on the lap or coffee table. The tablet runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop instead of Windows 10, which contrasts the recently revealed Lenovo Home 900 AIO.
