At this year’s CES, tablets evolved before our very eyes from pure consumption devices to laptop replacements that are great for productivity. Another new slate teaches kids how to get into social networking (safely). We also saw an 8-inch Windows tablet that puts the competition to shame and another 8-incher that’s half the price of the iPad mini. Oh, and just in case you love eye candy, there’s a 20-inch 4K tablet on our best of list. Here are the top tablets of CES 2014.
Samsung is aiming to bridge the gap between PCs and tablets with its supersized Galaxy Note Pro. This Android-powered slate is all about productivity, letting you run four apps on the 12-inch 2560 x 1600 screen at the same time. To make the most of this extra real estate, Samsung also developed a new Magazine UX and retooled the touch keyboard to make it more like a laptop. Like other Galaxy Note's there's a built-in S Pen for taking notes and drawing, but Samsung throws in a ton of other apps and services -- including remote PC access -- to help you get more done.
