Samsung Galaxy Tab S accessories to include Book Cover, Bluetooth keyboard
At the official unveiling of the new Galaxy Tab S, Samsung’s latest tablet series that features beautiful AMOLED displays in a sleek and thin profile, the company also announced a couple of official accessories for both the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch variants. First up is the Book Cover – unlike a standard case, the Book Cover will allow users to prop up their Galaxy Tab S in three different positions, based on whether they want to read, watch a video, or type something out. As with third-party cases, opening or closing the cover will turn on or turn off the screen.
Color options for the Book Cover will include white, bronze, red, blue, black and ivory. For those looking for a simpler case, there’s also a Simple Cover (yeah, not very imaginative naming there) that is lighter and more compact, though it won’t offer the same multi-angle usability of the Book Cover. The color options remain the same as those for the Book Cover, though you won’t be able to get the ivory one in this case.
The third accessory is a Bluetooth keyboard, which should come in handy for those times when you want to be productive. The keyboard will have the same convenience as a laptop keyboard, but goes a step further by offering hot keys for some of the features on the Galaxy Tab S. For example, you can enable the Multi-Window feature, or take a screenshot, simply by pressing one of the corresponding keys on the keyboard. The color options are not that many here, with only Titanium Bronze and Dazzling White to choose from.
In the audio department, the Galaxy Tab S will be compatible with Samsung’s recently announced LEVEL headphones, which we found to be rather impressive in quality (though a wee bit too costly.) The Book Cover, Simple Cover and Bluetooth Keyboard will sport the same perforated dot pattern like the Galaxy S5, and will be available alongside the Galaxy Tab S when it goes up for sale in July.
