Samsung launched a new Pro family of tablets a few months ago, comprised of devices with screens from 8.4 to 12.2 inches that are already available in various countries. However, Samsung may have a hard time selling some of them this year, particularly the 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro models, which have prices starting at $849 and $649, respectively.
Samsung took to Twitter to announce that the 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 tablet that was unveiled at CES 2014 is now available for pre-order in the U.K. from its online store. The company has finally announced pricing details and a launch date for the basic 32GB Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 Wi-Fi model (available in white or black,) at least for the U.K. – the tablet costs £649 (about $1,076) and is scheduled to ship on February 4. Buyers that pre-order the device now will also get a free Gamepad, which otherwise retails for £59. The LTE version of the tablet is not yet available for purchase. More →
