The tablet also rocks a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 400GB. What this means is that you can simply connect the tablet to your big screen (TV/Monitor/Projector) using an HDMI cable. The speaker delivers high quality sound, has eight microphones to be able to pick up voice commands from across the room. The Galaxy Book 2 is basically a Windows 10 tablet that features a built-in stand as well as a keyboard "dock" that lets you turn it into a laptop.
