Samsung has revealed details about two new tablets at an event in New York City, ushering an 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S into its ever-growing ranks of devices. Both devices share the same WQXGA (2560 x 1600 pixels, 16:10 ratio) display, which Samsung says has a 100,000:1 contrast ratio to make blacks darker and whites brighter.
The screen is large enough, but not for holding a DVD-ROM, neither for a BD drive, playing Blu-ray/DVD directly on Galaxy Tab S is irrealizable. Then the only way out is to convert your Blu-ray and DVD movies to the video formats playable on Galaxy Tab S 10.5/8.4, which has at least the following advantages:
- Make use of existing Blu-ray, DVDs and the excellent features of the tablet;
- Watch high definition movies on the go, during a travel or commuting, the movies will help you pass the boring time;
- Avoid confusing apps/software extras on the tablet;
- Get Galaxy Tab S away from viruses, adware, spyware, etc during online video playing.
