Samsung Shows Off New Galaxy Note, Series 7 Notebooks, Touch Monitor, And More
We began our time at Samsung's booth taking a closer look at the Galaxy Camera. As you'll recall, the Galaxy Camera runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features 4G connectivity so you can upload and share photos immediately. The back of the camera features a very nice 4.8-inch HD touchscreen.
We then moved on to the company's new Galaxy Note 10.1 with 4G LTE connectivity through Verizon Wireless. Samsung and Verizon Wireless announced this tablet at CES 2013. The Galaxy Note 10.1 features a high-definition display with a resolution of 1280x800. It runs on Android 4.1 and features a number of cool software features thanks to Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. We especially liked the Multi Window features which let you view multiple applications simultaneously. With this feature, you can choose Cascade View or Dual View.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is coming to Verizon Wireless.
Next up, Samsung showed us the company's all new Series 7 Chronos and Series 7 Ultra. The Series 7 Chronos now features a ten-finger multi-touch display. The machine is encased in a full aluminum body and packs an Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory, AMD Radeon HD887OM graphics, and up to 1TB of storage. Samsung is utilizing a new software called RAMaccelerator in the Series 7 Chronos to provide up to a 150 percent increase in speed while browsing and running apps.
The new Series 7 Ultra also features an aluminum body. This ultrabook packs a full HD (1920x1080) display, JBL optimized speakers, and AMD graphics. The Series 7 Ultra's display is brighter (350 nit) and wider than previous models. Key specs include Intel Core i5 and i7 processor options, AMD Radeon HD8570M graphics, and up to 256GB of SSD storage.
After taking a look at the Series 7 machines, we headed over to see Samsung's new Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor. This monitor supports 10 point multi-touch and is the company's first multi-touch display optimized for Windows 8. The SC770's stand easily adjusts to give you a 60-degree tilt as well as the ability to easily rotate the monitor between portrait and landscape modes.
Before leaving Samsung's booth, we headed over to take a quick look at the SSD 840 and SSD 840 Pro. The SSD 840 comes in capacities of 120GB, 250GB, and 500GB. The SSD 840 Pro is available in capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The drive offers up to 100K IOPS read speeds on the 256GB and 512GB models and up to 90K IOPS write speeds.
