Tagged With Samsung TabPro S Roadtrip Challenge


The Samsung Galaxy TabPro S is one of the slimmest and lightest 2-in-1s on the market. While this is great for portability, it can prove problematic for forgetful mobile workers who have a hard time keeping track of their things. (You know who you are.) Because you can barely feel the TabPro S in your bag, it’s easy to accidentally leave the device behind on public transport.

To protect against these user errors, Samsung has equipped the TabPro S with Samsung Flow; a mobile app for Galaxy smartphones that provides additional security features and other neat tricks. We put it to the test during our road trip.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


During today’s interstate road trip challenge, I’ll be visiting the headquarters of Xero and Slack in Melbourne. (Look out for a Featured Workplace later in the week.) But first I need to get there. This is a perfect opportunity to test out the Samsung TabPro S’s productivity chops while in the air. Read on to find out how it fared.


As you read this, I'll be on a plane en route to Melbourne for the first leg of my Samsung TabPro S Interstate Roadtrip Challenge. For those who missed yesterday's explainer, I'm visiting some of Australia's most interesting tech companies in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane while simultaneously managing the day-to-day running of the site -- all on Samsung's 2-in-1 laptop. But first, here are my impressions of the included keyboard.


2-in-1 laptops are supposed to provide the best of both worlds. The ability to change into a tablet offers a level of flexibility that standalone laptops can’t match -- especially if you're frequently on the road. Over the next week, I'll be putting this concept to the test by travelling to Melbourne, Brisbane and then back to Sydney armed with nothing but Samsung's Galaxy TabPro S. Along the way, I'll be visiting interesting tech startups to see how they work (and maybe hit up a few of each state's best burger joints for good measure!)
