Samsung spills Galaxy Note Pro, Tab Pro pricing and availability
Looks like Office Depot may have jumped the gun a bit when it kicked off its pre-sale of the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO earlier today.
Samsung just made an official announcement regarding the pricing and availability of the four new Android-powered tablets that it unveiled at CES last month, revealing that the Galaxy Note Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.4 will all launch on Feb. 13. The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is slated to arrive sometime in March 2014, and Samsung says that Verizon will offer a 4G LTE-enabled version of the Note Pro later this quarter.
Here's how the pricing for all four slates breaks down:
- Galaxy Note Pro: $749.99 for the 32GB model, $849.99 for the 64GB variant
- Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2: $649.99 with 32GB of storage
- Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1: $499.99 with 16GB of storage
- Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4: $399.99 with 16GB of storage
The screens of all four of Samsung's new slates feature a resolution of 2560x1600, and they also all come with Android 4.4 KitKat running beneath Samsung's custom Magazine UX. The new overlay gathers a users' most-accessed content, including games, notes, apps and email, and places it all on the home screen for easy access.
All of Samsung's tablets also come with Galaxy Perks bundled content, which the company says includes over $800 worth of content. Some of the goodies that come with Galaxy Perks are a $25 Google Play credit, three-month Hulu Plus membership and 50GB of Dropbox storage for two years.
The Galaxy Note Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 are now available for pre-order from Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry’s, Newegg and Samsung's own website. Each unit offers a different experience, with the Tab Pro 8.4 filling the small and portable role, the Tab Pro 10.1 being the mid-sized model and the Note Pro being a giganto-slab for folks that want a large screen for drawing, note-taking or whatever else they feel like doing with that S Pen stylus.
