When Samsung announced its four new Pro Galaxy tablets at CES 2014, it conveniently forgot to mention pricing details for these devices. However, it looks like pricing details have been shared in Europe, so let’s take a look at how much the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2, TabPRO 12.2, TabPRO 10.1 and TabPRO 8.4 will cost.
So far, Samsung Netherlands and Samsung Finland have shared pricing details for these devices, or at least for a few of the models that will be available, although the tablets can’t be purchased at this time in the region. According to them prices start €389 for the 16GB Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 Wi-Fi version (in Netherlands) and go all the way up to €850 for the 32GB Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 Wi-Fi (in Finland) – although you should know the prices do not coincide, and not all LTE models (which should be more expensive) are priced).
Interestingly, an electronics retailer in Germany has listed prices for all the Pro models, including full prices but also on-contract offers for LTE versions, even though the tablets aren’t ready to ship yet. As you’ll see in the table below, Cyberport.de’s prices well above what Samsung Netherlands and Samsung Finland have listed in their press releases.
In addition to the numbers from Samsung Netherlands, Samsung Finland and Cyberport.de, we have included in the table below European price details as shared by Sam Mobile, a source that has provided accurate Samsung-related details in the past:
There’s a reason we have not translated these prices in U.S. dollars: the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO models will probably not be as expensive in the U.S. as the conversion will have you believe. To put things in perspective, we have instead listed pricing details for various other tablets that are available in Europe including Apple’s iPad Air (base model), the Retina iPad mini (base model) the 16GB Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) and the Google Nexus 7 version (see table below). That way, you’ll be able to compare the prices Samsung is proposing for new tablets, compared to pricing for other devices available in the region. Keep in mind that Apple’s iPad pricing goes all the way up to €885 for the 128GB iPad Air or €795 for the 128GB Retina iPad mini, and that we didn’t list the cheaper, older iPad 2 and 2012 iPad mini in the table.
As for pre-order offers from various online retailers, such as the German retailer mentioned above, that may already begin listing the new tablets, we’d advise you to stay away from them and instead save your precious cash until Samsung is ready to unveil pricing details and actual availability details for the four tablets.
For what it’s worth though, considering that the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) is very similar in terms of specs to the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1, we would expect these two devices to be somewhat similarly priced as well.
We’ll be back with more details about the launch of the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO models in Europe and other markets once we have them, meanwhile don’t forget to check out our hands-on experience with the Pro tablets – see the playlist above.
There you go! I knew you would get the prices thanks AA!
We live and breathe this stuff! For sure the prices will be a lot more reasonable once they hit the market, and the US, especially. Thanks for visiting AA!
Those are unofficial prices…
Not from Samsung…So it will be less…I can get a gaming rig for 999 lol
Well of course. I never said it was worth the money. Touchwiz piece of junk, get a Nexus. Real Android.
I don’t like stock android..nexus is not real android
It’s more like real Google tablet…
Well at least it gets updates quickly.
The samsungs do not.
how about multitasking, 3GB RAM, S Pen or that display? Does missing all those justify having the latest version when you can root an install it anyways?
Not to mention nexus devices are limited to 16 or 32 gb storage with no sd card slot, NO SD CARD SLOT = NO THANKS
ok ok. Woah. My comment appears to be very controversial
maybe it is becouse of “Touchwiz piece of junk, get a Nexus.” statement LOL. Maybe it should of been something like “I don’t like touchiwz and I’d rather pay 350 for a tablet not 600-700″…it is all subjective so everybody does what he/she wants and likes so if you consider that it is not worth it for you it is OK. But the comparison between Nexus 10 tablet and the NotePro line is not fare. One is a budget (developer) device and the others are….well not LOL
ok I guess not. For me, though, its 350 dollars vs 600-700 dollars.
$540 for a 16GB Samsung Tablet?, who do they think they are, Appooole?
does anyone know when Galaxy Note Air 12.2 comes out?
maybe the iPad Pro?
In Denmark it was prized last week and I am getting one:-) : http://www.appsandroid.dk/joomla/nyheder/diverse-android-nyheder/2011-ces-samsung-lancerer-galaxy-note-tabpro-og-galaxy-notepro.html
It may not be “official” but, I think I’m gonna be sick…
If these prices are from Samsung in Finland and the Netherlands, then surely they are official, at least for those countries.
I can only assume that everyone claiming that these prices are outrageous must be in the US… welcome to Europe!
These prices are pretty much exactly what I expected – the TabPro 8.4 is the same price as the iPad Mini Retina, the 10.1 is the same price as the iPad Air, and the 12.2 inch tablets are more.
Of course these prices will not convert to USD (ie EU399 = USD 543), but I expect US prices to match Apple prices in that market.
I would love the TabPro 8.4, but I picked up a G Pad for £207, and I’m finding it hard to justify the TabPro 8.4 at £319 in the UK.
I don’t understand the point of having the Galaxy TabPro and Galaxy NotPro. If the specs are identical and all thats different is the S-Pen, why not just make the Note series and ditch the tab. If people don’t want to use the pen, they don’t have to.
