Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro may be slightly outdated next to the Galaxy Tab S line, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still solid tablets.

That puts the device at the same price range that Samsung asks for the significantly weaker Galaxy Tab 4 line, so if you were planning on picking up a Samsung tablet soon, this deal might be worth looking at.

Android Auto will integrate with existing Android APIs for notifications along with a set of Voice Actions. So if a developer has a music streaming app, they could tie in a specific voice action to play a particular song.
