Samsung Electronics to release new tablet PC

Samsung Electronics Co. said it has started selling a new tablet PC on Thursday, which runs on the Windows 10 operating system.

The South Korean tech giant kicked off sales of the Galaxy Book, which can connect to keyboards and be used like a laptop. As it runs on the Windows platform, consumers can use most PC software, such as Photoshop.
