Samsung Offers Gaming and Multimedia Experience with Its New GamePad and Bluetooth Speaker
Samsung will launch its new GamePad and Bluetooth Speaker tomorrow.
Encased in a steel frame, the Samsung GamePad transforms your Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a portable gaming console, or even a home console. Attachable to mobile devices ranging from 4- to 6.3-inches, GamePad connects with smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth.
With convenient features optimized for Samsung Galaxy devices running on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean platform, users can connect with GamePad via NFC and enjoy quicker access to gamers via the "PLAY" button. Users can also connect Galaxy devices to their TV through a HDMI cable or Screen Mirroring for video game console experience from the comfort of their living room.
At just a tap of the "PLAY" button, you can easily access the Mobile Console app, Samsung’s new integrated game launching app that opens in conjunction with GamePad to allow users to conveniently browse and purchase Gamepad supported games. Mobile Console features games such as EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted, Gameloft’s Asphalt8: Airborne, Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, and SEGA’s Virtua Tennis Challenge, just to name a few.
You can download the app through Samsung Apps, or by tapping the GamePad's "PLAY" button.
Available in Gray or White, the portable Samsung Bluetooth speaker connects with any NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet with one touch to stream music, so you'll get to enjoy sound clarity and depth anytime, anywhere.
The Samsung GamePad and Samsung Bluetooth Speaker will retail for S$158 and S$268 individually. Both will be available at Samsung Experience Stores from tomorrow, 8 February, onwards.
