Samsung Electronics Co. has added two more tablets to its already hefty lineup, with the introduction of the 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePRO and the Galaxy TabPRO, available in 12.2-, 10.1-, or 8.4-inch versions.

A personalized Magazine UX, specifically optimized for a large screen, allows users to further tailor their Galaxy tablet experience for their own needs. The UX enables them to organize their favorite content in an easy-to-use dashboard with automatic feed or news updates.
The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO (12.2) come equipped with a variety of productivity tools to help users to manage both their personal and professional lives.
