Samsung has announced the official availability of its Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 tablet in the U.S. Interested customers can get this device in the 32GB flavor from March 9 through Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s, Newegg, PC Richard and Sons, Tiger Direct and Walmart. Considering the size of the tablet, the pricing doesn’t seem like a lot. Attach a Bluetooth keyboard and you have yourself a decent sized notebook, for a price lower than most entry level Windows Ultrabooks or even the MacBook Air. Samsung is possibly targeting that market with its new range of PRO tablets, even more so with the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, which costs $ 100 more and comes with S-Pen functionality.
Samsung is also offering a ton of freebies with the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2:
- $ 25 Google Play Store Credit
- 1 Year of Gogo Inflight WiFi
- 3-Month Hulu Plus Trial (only new users)
- 3 Months of SiriusXM (only new users)
- 3 Audiobooks on Audible (only new users)
- 6 Months of WebEx (only new users)
- 50 GB of Dropbox Space (for 2 years)
- 2 Years of RemotePC (only new users)
- Hancom Office Suite
- Samsung WatchON
- 1-Year Subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek (only new users)
The Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 packs a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable), a 1.9 GHz Exynos 5420 octa core processor (3G only), Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s proprietary Magazine UX and a 9,500 mAh battery.
