Samsung unveils Piano Made Up Of Galaxy Tab S2s
South Korean electronics major Samsung Electronics has been finding innovative ways to promote and market its product. With Christmas upon us, the South Korean multinational consumer electronics major came up with an ingenious way to showcase its latest premium tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2, which is a successor to the Galaxy Tab S from last year.
In a promotional event, Samsung unveiled what it calls the “world’s first upright piano made entirely of Samsung tablets” at Spitalfields Market in London, England. The piano, made with over 100 Galaxy Tab S2s, was unveiled by British singer, actress, reality star and model, Ms. Myleene Klass, whose biggest claim to fame was as a member of the now-defunct British girl band, Hear’Say.
Classically-trained pianist Myleene unwrapped a huge present under a Christmas tree to unveil a piano made with over 100 of Samsung’s newest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2, before sitting down to tinkle on the tablet ivories, the festive music brightening up a cold dark December morning.
Talking at the launch of the piano, Myleene said; “Nothing makes me feel more festive than gathering around the piano with my two girls. The Samsung Tab S2 piano is a real first and nothing like I’ve ever played before. My youngest has just learned jingle bells and I know she’d love to try it on this piano!”
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 is the latest tablet offering from Samsung, and comes in two different versions, an 8-inch one and a 9.7-inch one. They are powered by an Exynos 5433 processor and come with 3GB of RAM and either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, with microSD card slots for capacity expansion.
