Windows 8 Tablet to Power New Samsung Galaxy Notebook

Samsung released a new video on its YouTube page that previews what appears to be a new Windows 8-powered Notebook series.

The device in the video features a slot that most likely holds a stylus making it similar to the Galaxy Note. It also features a QWERTY keyboard.

Samsung is scheduled to hold events during the IFA trade show in Berlin where this mystery device could be unveiled. The company will conduct two press conferences with one happening on Aug. 29, and the other on Aug. 30.


The company also released a new commercial for the Galaxy Note 10.1 that features Hollywood star James Franco this week.

The actor uses the new device in the ad and demonstrates how it is great for multitasking while strolling through his house where he is conducting different activities. The device is made to be the perfect assistant for a busy person and Franco's ad seems to stress this point.

Samsung announced that it would begin shipping the all new Galaxy Note 10.1 earlier this month.

"Providing an intuitive experience and armed with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM for enhanced performance, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is designed to simplify the process of capturing ideas, accessing information and multitasking, making each easier and faster allowing people to express their ideas in an efficient way," said Samsung in the press release.

The company hopes to capitalize off the success it enjoyed with the original Galaxy Note by improving the inside and making it bigger.

"The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a product we are very excited about and will offer our customers a new way to use and experience a tablet device," the release continued. "As well as being able to consume content such as videos, photos, document and the Internet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also gives them power to produce, create and customize that same content- something they won't get from any other product on the market."
