Just as media consumption models are evolving, so are the expectations of gamers. The ‘second-screen’ concept is taking root to extend gaming experiences like never before. Gamers are increasingly interactive, building communities and forums that rival populations of entire cities. As games become more complex, today’s consoles are extending functionalities to second-screens. Multi-player team based games especially stand to gain massively with different players taking on different roles and interacting on tablets for example towards achieving the game’s mission. In addition to benefits such as monitoring game statistics and trivia, console providers are creating applications that enable sending and receiving messages, launching social apps, checking out previous sessions, and shopping for add-on experiences all as part of a whole-new social reality enabled through the second screen, even during an active game.
Featuring the first ever Super AMOLED display for a Windows tablet, Samsung’s Galaxy TabPro S features a multi-touch screen with Intel HD 315 graphics delivering deeper contrast with more than 90 percent of natural tone, true color reproduction. The 2-in-1 tablet with its own a full-size, detachable keyboard and integrated touchpad includes the Xbox app that keeps you connected not just with your game but also with the gaming community. You can also control your Xbox One from the app and buy new games from the store. The app also allows you to navigate the Xbox One using the TabPro S as a controller for both gameplay and media. On your home network, you can play games on the tablet from your Xbox One, using it as a remote second screen while you roam freely around your home, continuing to control the console dashboard and playing your game. Even ever-popular Android games such as the preloaded Candy Crush Soda Saga and Asphalt 8 are also optimized to be played on the tablet.
Not just an ace gaming companion, the TabPro S combines the productivity benefits of a desktop and the portability of an ultra-light tablet, lasting up to 10.5 hours on a single charge- taking only two and a half hours to reach full charge, thanks to its Adaptive Fast Charging technology. The tablet is powered by a sixth generation Inter Core M (SKL) clocking 2.2GHz, with 4GB of RAM and a 128 GB solid state drive. Weighing only 693 grams and at 6.3 millimeters thin, the tablet includes a USB-Type C port and is compatible with USB A and HDMI via a connector cable (sold separately). The processor in the fanless 2-in-1 tablet utilizes only 4.5W of power consumption to eliminate noise disruption and maximize efficiency.
