Samsung Galaxy TabPro S arrives in the U.S. tomorrow starting at $900

While Samsung has churned out many a powerful tablet in recent times, the TabPro S breaks from the traditional mold of running Google's Android. Shipping with Windows 10, its overall profile is not too dissimilar to the Surface Pro roster. It ships with a detachable keyboard and can free-stand to behave like a notebook when required. There will also be a stylus available for the slate, but it won't begin shipping until later on this year.
Though it's quite pricey at $899.99, you do get a fair amount of bang for your considerable buck. There's a 12-inch, 2160 x 1440 display -- Super AMOLED, no less. Under the hood sits Intel's 6th-gen 14nm Intel Core M chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz, allied to 4 gigs of RAM. The $900 asking price arrives with 128 GB of solid-state storage, though a 256 GB option is available at additional cost.
There's a 5200 mAh battery to keep things ticking over, and a 5-megapixel shooter on both the front and back of the device. Having already made its way to several locations throughout Europe, the Galaxy TabPro S will reach the United States tomorrow. Interested parties will be able to purchase through either Microsoft or Samsung, as well as Best Buy.
Will you be snapping up the TabPro S, though? Let us know if it's on your shopping list by dropping us a comment below.

There is no competition to surface pro 4 at its starting price. Dont even think about it.

It's the best tablet PC by far. Nothing even touches it at this point. Go for it. I was actually about to buy one, but then I said screw it and I got myself a six pound gaming laptop for the same price. It was worth it for me, as one of my main reasons for upgrading was dolphin (the emulator) and I wanted to play other PC games.

No full USB port..... Samsung went for thinness over usability. How can it be a full desktop/laptop experience without a usb port?

There is a built-in USB Type-C port. Also there is optional Multi-Port adapter with additional (HDMI, regular USB, and USB type-C ports). More than enough for everything. http://www.samsung.com/global/

They make it better. Surface? Heavy, bulky, thick. This Samsung? Thinner, lighter, better tech... Also it's not like the Chinese - ripoffs.

Keep it. Way to pricey vs the Surface. Especially when it using Intel M processor. If it was with the i5 for $900 that would be perfect. But it is a nice hybrid.

The pricing is right in line with its competitors; the Surface Pro 4 with a M3 processor is $899.99 and the iPad Pro 128GB is $949.00. It has a few features included with that price that the competition doesn't, such as a keyboard and amoled display. The Samsung is missing somethings the others have included such as a pen, larger display and micro SD slot.

My next Windows-to-Android Cross Platform gadget. This is the only Windows tablet worth getting. Integrates well with Galaxy devices, Tizen TVs, Gear VR, Gear S2, Gear 360.. Nothing gives you all of this advanced integrations and flexibility. The built-in USB Type-C port and optional Multi-Port adapter (HDMI, regular USB, and USB type-C ports) give you more than enough for everything. The 10+ hours battery with quick charging is another great feature to say the least.
