Samsung Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO prices revealed

Samsung Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO prices revealed
Samsung took CES 2014 by storm today, as it unveiled many products, and, among them, no less than four new high-end Android tablets, all part of a brand new PRO series: Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, Galaxy TabPRO 10.1, Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, and Galaxy NotePRO 12.2.

The press release announcing the new Galaxy tablets doesn’t contain details about their prices. However, SamMobile (generally a very reliable source) has tweeted the prices of every model announced. Mind you, the prices were listed in Euro, since SamMobile is a Dutch website. However, we shouldn’t convert them to US dollars, since Samsung - just like Apple - usually keeps approximately the same number value between European and US prices. So, if the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 with LTE costs €849 in Europe, it will likely be sold for around $849 in the US (despite the fact that, if you actually convert €849 into US dollars you get $1,158). This being said, here’s what we should expect to pay for Samsung’s new tablets:

  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, Wi-Fi: €389 ($389?)
  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, LTE: €519 ($519?)
  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1, Wi-Fi: €479 ($479?)
  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 LTE: €609 ($609?)
  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, Wi-Fi: €649 ($649?)
  • Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, LTE: €749 ($749)
  • Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, Wi-Fi: €749 ($749?)
  • Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, LTE: €849 ($849?)

It's not that bad, is it? You can let us know in the comments how you feel about these prices.

According to Samsung, all four new tables will be released around the world starting this quarter. Those wondering whatever happened to the rumored Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will have to keep on wondering, because Samsung has not announced this allegedly very cheap tablet yet.

Just wait to Easter, and I'm sure we can buy it for around 20% less!

I think the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 Wi-Fi should be 359.99, that'll sell well. In my opinion it's better than the iPad Mini with Retina Display (even though the iPad Mini is a nice device), but the rest of them are overpriced.

Do you know that Asus almost has no margin from selling Nexus tablets? And this tablet cost more than not only Google Nexus 7 but maybe even than iPad Mini? You want they give the charity for you?

Tab pro for 389$ is not to bad, I think about 349$ would be a smarter price tho.

Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, LTE: €519 ($519?), really Samsung, you have priced it out of my budget......... Samsung is becoming like Apple, in terms of pricing, this was one Samsung device which excited me after such a long time, but you priced it out of equation............hope final pricing is under 450$

I really like Samsung products, but not that much. $850 will buy you a decent convertible laptop with full Windows. Hope the prices are wrong, because they will not sell......

$50 more and you can get the Surface Pro 2.

Are you saying that only Apple can sell their tablets for an expensive price and still break/keep record sales?

It's not that. Apple prices ppl have learned to accept because 2 ipads get released/year. A 9.7" and a 7.9" Samsung releases too many tablets in a small time span to keep go up on pricing. That and too many of their devices are too similar. Example. All 3 versions of the galaxy tab 10.1 are Dual Core tablets with 1280x800 display resolution. 2 of them had 1gb of memory, it wasn't until the tab 3 that it was bumped to 3. The tab 3 was JUST released July 7, the Note 8 in like march of last year, and the Note 10.1 2014 in September, and lets say this is released in March. Let's compare it this way. The first Galaxy Tab was released in 2010. Look at Samsung's tablet history Tab 7.0, Tab 7.0 Plus, Tab 8.9, Tab 10.1, Tab 7.7, Tab 2 7.0, Tab 2 10.1, Note 10.1, Note 8.0, Tab 3 7.0, Tab 3 8.0, Tab 3 10.1, Note 10.1 2014...That's 13 tablet between the first and most recent tablet available. The first iPad was released in 2010 as well. iPad has the 1, 2, "3", 4, Air, Mini, and Air Mini. That's 7 tablets between the first and most recent tablet available in the same time span. You know how many ppl have asked me "Is the Tab 3 7.0 worth the upgrade from the tab 2 7.0?" and it's very difficult to justify saying "yes it's worth the upgrade." I have owned the Tab 7, 7.0 2, 10.1, 8.9, Note 10.1, Note 8, and Note 10.1 2014. I LOVE Samsung tablets. But it's difficult to justify upgrading Samsung tablets. Especially when they come out with a new tablet approx. every 6 months. Perfect Example. The Tab 8.9 was released 10/2011, the Tab 7 plus 11/2011, Note 10.1 2/2012, the Tab 2 7 03/2012, the tab 7.7 04/2012, and the tab 2 10.1

Ah #firstworldproblems. When is having options really that bad? It's pretty obvious that Samsung's strategy is working for them, or they would stop doing it. Believe it or not, there are those of us out there that don't jump on the latest and greatest incremental change, just because the commercials say we should. Maybe you should think about your need for buying a brand new tablet every 6 mos. Not saying it's wrong, and you have every right to as a consumer, but if your motivation is the have the latest and greatest at all times, then it stands to reason that is the demographic that Samsung is targeting. Furthermore, they must also realize that this demographic is also willing to pay these prices to keep up with the latest and greatest. So in conclusion, if they are successful with this strategy, releases, and prices, why should they change; such as lower prices? In fact, like most businesses, they'll try to to see how much higher they can get, until they see. As a consumer, I can completely understand why you'd like these to be cheaper so you can keep on buying them, but Samsung isn't a charity, so they are going to milk the hell out of the consumer, and there shareholders will be more happy for it.

Only ones I purchased were the tab 7, note 8, and note 2014 (cause u got it on Craigslist for $300). Work purchased the rest for testing. Being a tech geek I know exactly what I want so that's what I purchase. I'm saying based upon personal experience it can get confusing for the customer as to which they should purchase. Plus because updated aren't uniform you never know when ur gonna buy the dead product. Prime example: the note 8. As of yet there's no indication it'll get 4.3....but the og note 10.1 got it even though it's a much older device. With so many devices pushed out I'd CAN BE(not always) difficult for the consumer to figure it which elk offer the most longevity

I think their high end tablet strategy should follow their high end phone strategy....a new 1 every year. The Note being released in the fall and the S series in the spring. I think they should release a new Galaxy Tab every year(7, 8.x(0, 4, or 9...whatever they finally decide on lol), and 10.1 in the spring, then a new Note (8.x and 10.1) in the fall. My favorite device so far is the Note 8, I just couldn't deal with the lackluster screen and the ? of whether it'd be updated to 4.3 or not. The size was PERFECT for me(personally) it had all the features I wanted, with the exception of a high res screen. I think 1280 x 800 works on a 7" tablet, but 8 and up I think either needs a higher resolution or a higher quality LCD...the 10.1 2014 had both

Its worser then Apple pricing and ridiculous high.

22. taz89

How is it worser? It's cheaper than apples device not by much but definitely not worse. Ipad mini starts at 399, tab 8.4 at 389 for example and the same difference if for the 10" versions too.

389 is in Euro and in US its 530 US dollar! Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, Wi-Fi: €389 ($530?) Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, LTE: €519 ($707?) Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1, Wi-Fi: €479 ($652?) Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 LTE: €609 ($830?) Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, Wi-Fi: €649 ($884?) Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, LTE: €749 ($1021) Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, Wi-Fi: €749 ($1021?) Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, LTE: €849 ($849?)

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, LTE: €849 ($1157?) So is it still cheaper then Apple devices?

Euro prices are typically higher than US prices. The prices in the article are probably the best guesstimate for the US.

To help you along " However, we shouldn’t convert them to US dollars, since Samsung - just like Apple - usually keeps approximately the same number value between European and US prices. So, if the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 with LTE costs €849 in Europe, it will likely be sold for around $849 in the US (despite the fact that, if you actually convert €849 into US dollars you get $1,158)."

I never thought about how much it gonna cost in US, just in EU and those prices are about correct. Note 10.1 2014 16GB WiFi cost around 610 Euro here and in US only 600 US. NotePro 12.2 WiFi 749 Euro is over 100 Euro more. Tab 3 10.1 WiFi at release day cost around 380 Euro and TabPro 10.1 WiFi 479 Euro. Same 100 Euro more. Even Ipad Air cost over 100 Euro less then Note 10.1 2014 WiFi version. So yes, Samsung devices have worser pricing then Apple here in EU. Before it has always been Apple and now its Samsung.
