Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 started taking pre-orders today, ahead of the February 19 shipping/release date in the US. The price begins at $399 ($349 by May) for this much sought after high-resolution Android 4.4 tablet: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-TabPRO-8-4
For $349 you get the 16GB model of Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4, the newest 8-inch Android tablet on the market, but more importantly, the best, most powerful, and feature rich tablet of the 8-inch Android tablets as we wrote when the Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 was announced on January 7.
To recap some of the features and specs: Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 offers the best opportunities for multitasking on a tablet of this dimension, not to mention the $800 worth of apps and services that are bundled in. Otherwise the 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor makes it the fastest 8-inch Android tablet, which together with 2GB of RAM means it can handle some pretty decent sized jobs. The outstanding 2560 x 1600 resolution also gives it the highest PPI of any 7 or 8-inch tablet, at a whopping 359 PPI.
This is without doubt the best of the 8-inch Android tablets by far. For people who want to be productive on a tablet it offers the most choice yet, and even for people who don’t need productivity tools on a tablet, it has the best display, most features, and most power anyway, which will give it a long life as a media companion. The screen is great and makes some peoples jaw drop when they hold it in their hand and see how great it is.
