Samsung's newest Galaxy tablets go on sale this month, and they're packing hefty price tags. The company has announced pricing and availability for the Galaxy NotePro 12.2 and Galaxy TabPro 12.2, 10.1, and 8.4 models, four new tablets it unveiled at CES that are aimed at business users.
The Galaxy NotePro 12.2 will cost you $750 for the 32GB model and $850 for the 64GB option. Samsung's Galaxy TabPro 12.2-inch model comes with 32GB of storage and will set you back $650. The TabPro 10.1 costs $500 for 16GB, while the TabPro 8.4 gives you 16GB of internal memory for $400. Those prices also include Galaxy Perks, which are essentially free subscriptions to popular services such as Hulu Plus, Dropbox, Bloomberg Businessweek+, and Cisco WebEx Premium.
You can purchase the Galaxy Note 12.2 tablets, as well as the Galaxy TabPro 10.1 and 8.4, starting on February 13, but you can pre-order them starting February 4 at midnight Eastern time. The Galaxy TabPro 12.2 won't be available until March 2014.
Ahead of launch day, Office Depot updated its Web site on Monday to say it is now selling the 64GB black version of the tablet for pre-order. You'll also be able to pre-order the tablets from Samsung.com, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry's, and Newegg.
All four tablets pack impressive specs, run Android 4.4 KitKat, and sport Samsung's new Magazine UX. The Galaxy NotePro 12.2 comes with a massive 12.2-inch diagonal touch screen with 2,560x1,600 resolution, a quad-core processor, a front 2-megapixel webcam, a rear 8-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, built-in speakers, and an S-Pen stylus. The TabPro tablets likewise, all sport high-definition screens and premium internal guts.
Though those prices might seem steep, even for premium tablets, keep in mind these devices are aimed at business users with big money to spend on technology.
