UPDATED: Galaxy Tab S hits NZ shelves

The Galaxy Tab S supports the TVNZ Ondemand, 3NOW and SKY GO applications.

Samsung’s thinnest and lightest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S, is hitting New Zealand shelves today.

“We’re really excited to introduce the Tab S to New Zealanders. The way we are consuming media is changing quickly and there is now a proliferation of platforms available for us to view, share and engage with content,” said Josh Delgado, director of IT and mobile, Samsung Electronics New Zealand.

Good Gear Guide reviewer, Tony Ibrahim, reports, "The centrepiece of the Tab S’ technical wizardry is the screen. Talking shop when it comes to display technology might seem mundane, but drop the ball on the screen and it could come at the expense of the software experience. Get it right, however, and every part could be a little bit better.

"A 2560x1600 resolution screen is trusted with the Tab S’ Android 4.4 KitKat software. The Super AMOLED panel spans 10.5-inches, and combined these numbers add up to a dense 288 pixels-per-inch. The final number in this sublime display recipe is a contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

"The Super AMOLED panel produces bright, punchy colours. Samsung claims the Tab S can reproduce ninety per cent of the colours in the UV spectrum and the performance of the Tab S’ screen lends credence to the bold claim. Combine this illustrious take on colour with the aforementioned contrast ratio and the result is a display as proficient in dark colours as it is in bright ones.

"Here are the spark notes: the world’s leading television company has endowed this tablet with its best 10.5 inch screen yet."
