Here are all the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S accessories

Here are all the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S accessories
Besides announcing the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5, Samsung today revealed a new family of accessories - obviously made for the two new tablets. These accessories have simple names - Book Cover, Simple Cover, and Bluetooth Keyboard - and will be available at the same time with the tablets (though pricing details haven't been revealed yet).

Both the Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 have their own Book Cover and Simple Cover, but it looks like only the larger 10.5-inch tablet can use the Bluetooth Keyboard.

The Galaxy Tab S Book Cover allows you to position your slate in three different angles: viewing mode, touch mode, and typing mode. It’ll be offered in the following colors: white, black, bronze, ivory, red, and blue. The Simple Cover provides “the same protective structure of the Book Cover, but with a slimmer design.” This will be available in white, black, bronze, red, and blue.

As for the Bluetooth Keyboard, this transforms the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 into a laptop. It's lightweight and thin (340 grams, 7.5 mm), being made "from identical materials" as the tablet itself. The keyboard features Bluetooth 3.0, 80 keys (including specific hotkeys), and a rechargeable 200 mAh battery.   

Samsung also said that its Level headphones are compatible with the new Tab S slates - but we’ve seen these before, when they were first unveiled back in April.

While I liked Samsung products because the materials they used were good quality and durable, I never tagged "Premium" to them!

Until now... the white book cover & the black (not gold) bluetooth keyboard combined with the black tab look as premium as they can get. Just Wow!!

Maybe you don't have to go metal to make something Premium looking after all!

Keyboards on android are close to useless in comparison to an actual Windows or Mac configuration. Office productivity on android tablets just aren't there yet. I wouldnt have said this a few months ago, but windows tablets are the way to go. Especially with the announcement of the new low cost Atom series.

Most people who picks up a tab or an ipad are looking for web browsing, watching their media on bigger screens and playing games. The majority of us who wants productivity will go get themselves a laptop.

it just make sense if you have 10 inch slate for work, it doesn't matter what the os are keyboard function are always just for faster typing, thats it. and samsung already offer some powerful office apps in it.
windows typically best for productivity is just because they offer powerfull offic, and most windows are on pc or laptop with more powerful hadware. hence its apps and hardware for productivity to go, not the os.

Really digging the bluetooth keyboard especially, as well as the book cover! No other tablets offer this flexibility so KUDOS to SAMSUNG on that. This makes me want to get it even more now.

The keyboard dock would have been awesome if it was backlit
