After publishing several lists in recent days with the best smartphones, phablets and 7-8-inch tablets and 10-inch tablets, we finish our review of what has been this year 2014 with a category that has grown a lot with the emergence of so-called professional or productive use tablets. We talk about the tablets of Large Format, you are around 12 inches. We begin.
This year has been a year of changes. We have seen how the increase in the size of smartphones and the popularity of phablets has pushed tablet manufacturers to forget about 7 inches and focus more on sizes of 8 or 9 inches. In addition, there has been a slowdown in the growth of this market, which has forced many to reinvent themselves, and one of the most frequent forms has been target companies, an untapped sector, with large format tablets capable in many cases of replacing laptops.
Surface Pro 3
We change platforms and go to Android. The Galaxy NotePro 12.2 has managed to sneak onto this list despite being announced almost a year ago, in January 2014. This speaks highly of the work done by Samsung. We are facing a powerful tablet, but whose scope is mobile devices and not that of laptops. Moves into 2013 high-end specs with a Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 800, 3 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of storage. Of course, although it is not as powerful as the Surface, it cannot be denied the good design with 295.6 x 204 x 8 millimeters and 753 grams for a 12.2-inch screen and resolution 2560 x 1600 pixels. It also includes a Stylus, functions such as split screen and the possibility of using a keyboard. In short, a tablet for those looking for an Android for more than just playing, browsing, reading or watching movies. (Analysis)
