Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 hands-on
Samsung's Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 is the smallest, most compact of all new TabPRO tablets that the company just introduced, but it's pretty likely to end up as the most popular option. The reason for that is the recent glut for tablets that offer petite proportions, but don't skimp on the specs. If anything, the 8.4-inch TabPRO fits that bill downright perfectly -- it's powerful and portable.

It should be, considering it's a non-Note tab. It gonna try to undercut the Mini w/Retina, so about $350 is where I'd position it, $300 if they are going unusually aggressive (unlikely though). I'd pay around $330 for it fo sho bro!

Finally a tablet from samsung that teased me,loved the high resolution display and SD 800 processor

Yes indeed,but runs android,has a higher pixel density with a slightly bigger display,has the upper hand in camera (8mpx + flash vs 5mpx),much more RAM memory,that means better multitasking (although iOS 7 doesnt need much ram to run smoothly) and I think it'll be a lot cheaper too..

Funny I thought it looks just like my Note 3. iPad Mini didn't even come to mind for me.

Wow, I've been waiting sooo long for a tablet like this.
Thin and light (extremely important for me to carry around) with top-notch hardware...
Phew, and it's even a sexy beast in black! Congratulations Samsung, you did it again! Completely blown away the competition, you bought me.

Clearly influenced by Windows 8, seems to me this article and many commenters in general want to ignore this fact especially since WP Tile based UI existed before Flipboard, I wonder how long till MS sues.

"While this is not the most pixel-dense screen we've see out there..."
Uh, maybe not if we count phones, but tablet wise I'm not familiar with anything that exceeds it.

there is alot of new amazing feature beside the magazine UX, like opening 4 windows and transferring files while you're making a video call
if apple didnt make an amazing tablet this year, with only updating hardware and nothing else, we're going to see her butt red for sure
for the first time, i want to buy a galaxy tab

John V always amuses me with he reviews a samsung product. I remember when the note 3 was released, he had a hands on video of the phone where he didn't know that the back was faux leather, and he assumably liked it. Then when all the details came out, and the back turned out to be faux we started hearing with every review of his that samsung materials are not premium, in other words, anything that aint aluminum for him is not premium.
I have the note 3 and the note 10.1 2014, and almost everyone I meet thinks that the back on these devices is real leather.
p.s: with my black note 3, I have 4 battery door covers, white carbon fiber, black carbon fiber, black brushed aluminum, and white leather one. And I ordered 2 days ago the black tempered glass back. Can you do that with your premium aluminum apple?

The whole idea of Aluminum being a "Premium Material" on a phone seems laughable to me. I love HTC and I bought a One last April. First off most people put their phones in cases because dropping something with a replacement value of approx $300-$700 is too much for most people, myself included. So it spent about 5 months in a Seidio Surface case the one without the kick stand. I thought the case felt premium and well made. I felt good about my $30 case purchase. Then I slid my One out of the case and it had a pit in the front aluminum under where the case covered, and also another right next to it in the bezel. Little did I know a grain of sand had gotten under my case, stayed there for however long and created a tiny dent in my metal phone. That had never happened to me before with a plastic phone. Needless to say aluminum phones no longer hold any importance to me, in fact I'm going to put aluminum in the Cons category from that point on.
BTW, where did you buy all the replacement back covers for your Note 3? eBay?

Hmmm. I didn't know you could use the ho*o word on here. I've received warnings and a 3 day suspension for much less.

Does anyone know if the display if RGB or if it's RGBW pentile matrix like the 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1?
