It looks like the new line of Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro tablets are finally available for purchase. These are the new high premium tablets that Samsung hopes will compete with the iPad not just for users but businesses as well. The hardware specs are top-notch with a high-resolution 2560×1600 screen, 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor, 3GB of RAM, and other bells and whistles. Besides the hardware, Samsung is packing a whole bunch of software on to these tablets that they hope will make it appealing.
The tablets will come with $25 Google Play credit, 1 year of Gogo In-flight Wi-Fi® (up to 36 flights), 50GB Dropbox space for 2 years, Sidesync, Remote PC and more. Why would Samsung bundle all this for free, well the tablets are definitely expensive. They are targeting the high-end market of tablets with the lowest priced 8.4 inch Note Pro starting at $399 and going to $849 for the 12.2 inch Tab Pro. These are not your Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire style budget tablets. The Tab Pro series also comes with the S Pen technology that is the same as the Note phones.
I personally haven’t seen these tablets myself so I can’t remark how good they are in person. But hopefully I’ll check one out in the store soon. But from the specs they do look amazing and the screen should be fantastic. But they are very expensive and it’s not clear if all the bundled software is enough to entice users to buy them. I guess we’ll have to see how it all plays out. But since Samsung did not have high-end tablets up to this point and it was something they had to make. Now we’ll see how they sell.
