Samsungs Newest Galaxy Tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 Gets March US Release Date

The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 was showcased by Samsung at its Consumer Electronics Show event, but it’s only just available to buy now.  It’s designed to be a bigger version of Samsung’s popular Galaxy Tab 10.1, and tries to do something that tablets have been aspiring to for a while now – offer business users a real alternative to a laptop.

In terms of spec, the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 packs a WQXGA LCD display with a resolution at 2560 x 1600.  It has an impressive 3GB of RAM and is powered by an Exynos 5 Octa quad-core processing chip.  The rear camera shoots at 8 megapixels, with auto-focus, LED flash and zero shutter lag capabilities, with the front camera at 2 megapixels.

How much will you have to pay for all that high-end technology?  The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 will retail for $649.99 for the Wi-Fi only, 32GB model.  That’s a pricy device, but it’s $100 less than the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.  However, the Note tablet comes with the S Pen stylus, so it all depends if you’re willing to effectively spend $100 dollars on that, as there’s no other spec differences between the two.

If you still want encouragement to shell out that much for the tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 comes loaded with $800 of perks, including $25 Google Play store credit, a 3 month Hulu Plus trial, SiriusXM and Audible and 50GB of Dropbox cloud space.
