“Tablet sales are consistently strong and it clear that the category is a popular choice for New Zealanders who are surfing the web and watching television, the Tab S and it’s AMOLED screen are perfect for this,” said Jason Bell, Executive General Manager Merchandise, Noel Leeming Group.

“When Samsung showed us the Galaxy Tab S and its advances in mobile display technology, they demonstrated a device that delivers a wider range of rich and crisp colours with remarkable contrast. We saw a device that provides deeper and more realistic images,” said Jason Bell, Executive General Manager Merchandise, Noel Leeming Group.

“The visual experience is a demand that our customers communicate to us on the shop floor.
