Finally. We've been waiting forever to see if Aussies would get the NotePRO and TabPRO tablets from Samsung, and now we know! Here are the prices and where you can get 'em.
First though, a quick refresher: the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO is a 12.2-inch tablet which promises the best of both worlds: the goodness of a consumption tablet with the capabilities of a real laptop or desktop computer.
The screen is an eye-popping 2500×1600 WXGA display, and a form factor that aims to replicate the size and feel of an A4 notebook (once you include the bezel). It’s got 3GB of RAM, 32GB and 64GB storage variants, an expandable microSD slot (up to 64GB) and a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera.
The Samsung Galaxy TabPRO features a 10.1-inch 2560x1600 WQXGA screen, 2.3GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
There are a few different versions of the tablets that go on sale.
The NotePRO 32GB will set you back $1099, while the NotePRO with 4G will retail at $1249.
The TabPRO 10.1 ships in a 16GB variant for $599, while the same model with the 4G antenna costing $749.
Samsung is throwing in a bunch of content with the new tablets too. Whether you'd actually use a lot of it is a slightly different story.
You'll get a copy of Hancom Office for productivity, access to Samsung e-Meeting and a six-month subscription to Cisco WebEx. You'll also be getting a two-year subscription to Remote PC which allows you to dial in and mirror any PC on the go from your tablet.
There's also bundled iView from the ABC, and PLUS7 from Channel Seven (they're both free anyways), and a copy of Ezyflix for movie streaming.
All major retailers will carry the device from this week, as well as the Sydney and Melbourne Samsung Experience Stores.
