Samsung announced on Wednesday that several U.S. retailers will begin selling its new Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 tablet, first introduced during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, on March 9. The device will retail for $649.99 and will pack 32GB of onboard storage. Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry’s and Newegg will sell it, in addition to sales being offered direct from Samsung’s website.
We unboxed the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 earlier this year and enjoyed its large and sharp 12.2-inch display. It also doesn’t slouch in the spec department, with a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera and a massive 9,500mAh battery. Samsung had originally said the 32GB model would cost $749, so it looks like the company has decided to slash $100 off the price, likely in response to some pundits questioning the sky-high price of an Android tablet.
The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 comes with a bunch of perks, too, just like Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone. The company says it’s offering more than $800 in freebies, including a $25 Google Play Store Credit, 1 year of GoGo in-flight Wi-Fi, a 3-month trial of Hulu Plus, 50GB of Dropbox space, a 1-year BusinesWeek subscription, two years of RemotePC, 3 months of SiriusXM, 3 Audiobooks from Audible and more.
Samsung’s new tablet certainly isn’t cheap, but there’s an argument to be made for its sky-high price if you plan to take advantage of the freebies and want one of the most powerful large-screened Android tablets on the market.
