Samsung takes aim at iPad again with new ads for the Galaxy Pro series tablets
Samsung's Galaxy TabPro and NotePro tablets have been available for some time, but that doesn't mean it's not too late to start advertising them. In that spirit, Samsung today pushed out four new ads touting the software and hardware features of the Galaxy Pro Series tablets, including bits on Multi Window, the "4 megapixel display" pixel density, and support for multiple users.
Like in previous ads where Samsung explicitly and repeatedly targeted Apple devices, the popular iPad Air is squarely in Samsung's sights. Though they're not unwilling to point a finger at their Android-based competitors either, taking aim at the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets' lack of multitasking capability.
Note: Samsung is not wrong in that iOS does not support multiple user accounts. iOS does allow users to lock the tablet to a specific app, but that's not a feature that's easily discoverable or well-advertised.
Two Things At Once
Note: While, yes, the Galaxy Pro Series of tablets do support Multi Window mode so you can run two apps on the screen at the same time, they're also making that iPad user seem awfully dumb for not just switching to the other app as the video client runs in the background. Because iOS can do that.
Note: The iPad Air has a pixel density of 264ppi. The retina iPad Mini: 326ppi. The Galaxy Pro Series 12.2" is 247ppi, 10.1" is 299ppi, and 8.4" is 359ppi. So, yes, at the closest matching size, the Galaxy Pro tablets do have a greater pixel density than Apple's iPads. Except you're not likely to notice unless you have them less than a foot away from your eyeballs.
