ISLANDGETAWAY

Sam­sung Took to the Langkawi Is­land to Show­case the GALAXY Tab S

HWM (Malaysia) - - TELEPORT -

It's a very in­ter­est­ing month for Sam­sung. A cou­ple of months ago, the com­pany held the grand launch of its lat­est tablet, the GALAXY Tab S, in New York City. Not long af­ter, the Korean gi­ant then held the of­fi­cial launch event here in Malaysia.

It didn't stop there ei­ther. To fur­ther demon­strate the prowess of the GALAXY Tab S, Sam­sung Malaysia Elec­tron­ics then in­vited the me­dia out to a re­treat to Langkawi. Called the 'My Tab S Fac­tor' Chal­lenge, the trip was an event in which the me­dia would par­tic­i­pate in a se­ries of chal­lenges, all of which were fo­cused on the fea­tures and ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the GALAXY Tab S.

As men­tioned, the event also served as a way for the com­pany to show­case some of the new fea­tures on the GALAXY Tab S, such as the newly im­proved SideSync 3.0 app that al­lows users to pair their Sam­sung GALAXY smart­phone (in this case, the GALAXY S5) di­rectly to the GALAXY Tab S. Com­pared to the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of SideSync, the lat­est SideSync 3.0 now al­lows users to an­swer calls from their phones di­rectly on the tablet.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Sam­sung in­tro­duced the new Adap­tive Dis­play fea­ture on the GALAXY Tab S. The fea­ture ef­fec­tively ad­justs the screen's bright­ness ac­cord­ing to its sur­round­ing.

The me­dia get­away wasn't the only event that was hap­pen­ing dur­ing the chal­lenge. Back on the main­land, the Korean gi­ant also held an ex­cit­ing launch event. Ex­clu­sive for the first 100 cus­tomers, the com­pany was of­fer­ing a RM500 re­bate for the GALAXY Tab S at all par­tic­i­pat­ing Sam­sung Ex­pe­ri­ence Stores. The event lasted for three days, from July 11 till July 13, 2014. Dur­ing that time, par­tic­i­pat­ing stores such as the Gar­dens Mall re­ported cus­tomers ar­riv­ing as early as 4:00am at the front of the store in order to take ad­van­tage of the deal.

In ad­di­tion to the pur­chase of the GALAXY Tab S, cus­tomers were also given a 16GB USB OTG drive, a RM100 Zalora voucher, a GALAXY Tab S Sim­ple Cover, and a Boost Juice voucher worth RM9.50 from Sam­sung for free.

The GALAXY Tab S is avail­able in two sizes: 8.4-inch and 10.1-inch. The tablets will re­tail at RM1,699 and RM 1,999 re­spec­tively. Sam­sung will also be sell­ing spe­cial Book Cov­ers for each tablet size, with the cov­ers re­tail­ing for RM199 and RM229 for both the 8.4-inch and 10.1-inch mod­els re­spec­tively.
