@shakeeb,

THat's what I like about windows... it has a lot more features when you play with it.

You can take any windows tablet and pair it up with a Miracast enabled devices, or use the Microsoft display adapter.

The price factor could be one reason why the product would do well or not do well in the market. Hence Samsung should be more careful on this.

Great article. I think having a big screen tablet is great for both business and personal use. Have Samsung though of the portability of the device is questionable.

@mejiac. Yes the price factor may govern public opinion. People might buy it based on an attractive price, just like people buy iPhone although they know the iPhone S version is around the corner and is probably more powerful than the iPhone.

@SunitaT0,

Exactly, there are several products today that can easilly provide what Samsing is "trying" to accomplish, which to be honest I don't know what that is.

The market is already both crowded and has various options available.

I think they main distinguisher would be the price point that samsung sets, which could easilly be the defining factor if this is a hit or miss (but I think it'll be a miss given the current price point of samsungs current line of tablets)

Really Samsung? As if 6-8 inches tablets weren't enough. You call this "not a winner", I call this " unnecessary ". Enough job of viewing can be done on a good Samsung tablet. If I wanted a tv I would have gone for a Samsung smart tv which can double as a pc screen.

Great Article.

I think what Samsung is doing from a concept point of view is great.... providing an experience with focus in entertainment. But I don't think they have a winner here.

First, the concept isn't new, Google, Apple and Microsoft have been providing this already (many micro PCs can be easilly connected to your TV and you'll have a full blown PC avaiable, add some apps to it and you're good to do)

I like the idea of everything in a nice package and it being touch... but do you think folks will sit around in a room around an 18 inch screen? This is where I think the draw back will be (given it'll probablly have a price tag that's not so attractive).

Also, the fact that it's running android is another concern on my end.... I can buy a Chromecast for little to nothing and have the same apps that this device will probably provide.

I also think that this concept is more something that should be aimed at embedding into TVs (is there today, but still clunky).
