2-in-1 tablets running Windows 10 are on the rise, especially at MWC 2017. Most, if not all, of these tablets have premium looks that also belie a certain fragility.

Samsung Galaxy Book might be a Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet

Yes, Samsung seems to be definitely all about tablets this coming MWC 2017. Even though the company won’t yet explicitly name it (unlike LG), the Galaxy Tab S3 is pretty much in the bag.
