Three European retailers have listed the new tablets and if their prices are right the cheapest device will start at a whopping €699. This is the TabPro 8.4, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 cloecked at 2.3GHz, with Adreno 330 graphics, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It features a 2560x1600 8.4-inch screen which sounds impressive, but does not justify the high price. The LTE version costs €100 more. We are not sure there are many people willing to pay €799 for an 8.4-inch tablet with 16GB of storage.
The TabPro 10.1 brings an Exynos 5 Octa processor and it is currently listed at €799. It has the same resolution on a bigger screen and the same amount of memory and storage as its little brother. The LTE version is powered by the Snapdragon 800 and it is listed at €899.
The huge TabPro 12.2 has a similar spec, but it comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The Qualcomm version with LTE costs €999, while the Exynos 5 Octa version is listed at €899.
The flagship NotePro is even worse, as it is listed at €999 and €1099 depending on the chipset.
Needless to say these are not official prices, but the fact that three different retailers in two countries are listing the exact same prices is not reassuring. Who knows, perhaps Samsung believes there is a market for €999 Android tablets and it has some market research to prove it. We are not convinced to say the least.
