Reference from Jason Bell, Executive GM Merchandise at Noel Leeming Group:

"Tablets are only gaining in popularity and consumers demand a device that’s easy to use, looks great, and provides a great viewing experience. The Tab S will play directly into these consumer demands,” said Jason Bell, Executive General Manager Merchandise, Noel Leeming Group.

“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. We believe the Samsung Tab S is a standout product that will enables Kiwis to enjoy great visual media – whether that’s Game of Thrones, Graham Norton, TVNZ OnDemand or You Tube,” said Jason Bell, Executive General Manager Merchandise, Noel Leeming Group.

“The Samsung Tab S is a compelling product and we think Kiwis will come to believe it provides a superior viewing experience. It ticks all the boxes for the demands we hear from our customers – screen quality, design, and functionally,” said Jason Bell, Executive General Manager Merchandise, Noel Leeming Group.
