Samsung has collaborated with bespoke bike makers 14 Bike Co, to come up with a Tab 10.1 carry case for your bike. The idea is that you slip your Tab 10.1 into the case, attached to the frame of your bike, so you can easily carry it when you’re cycling around town.
We’ll go out on a limb here and say there’s no better way to lug your Tab 10.1 when you’re biking about the place.
While we’re sure that the Tab 10.1 fits in snugly, Samsung is actually saying that the design “allows for the device to be used easily whilst on the move,” suggesting that things like sat nav apps can be used from the saddle.
We’re not sure that this is totally in line with Cycling Proficiency Test rules. While you could indeed use the Tab 10.1 to check your location on Google Maps when you’ve stopped, we wouldn’t recommend actually using it when you’re actually, y’know, cycling.
As well as the Tab 10.1 holder, Samsung and 14 Bike Co have collaborated on a custom road bike (pictured), which takes design cues from the Tab 10.1 itself.
Like the Tab 10.1, the bike has a lightweight frame, the ‘bespoke handling’ provides effortless control and it’s also got a black paint finish on one side with white on the other, “reflecting the colours the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available in.”
If you’re interested in checking out the Tab 10.1 holder or the custom bike they can be ordered by shooting an email to John Wainwright on sales[at]14bikeco[dot]com.
