Anyone considering picking one of these up? I just got a retina mini but am probably switching from an ip5 to a note 3 soon and Samsung's new tab pros come out in a few days. They look pretty sweet and I'm digging their new home screen lay out. Really wish the 8.4 came with an s-pen. Guess I'll have to wait for initial reviews though.

They do look impressive. I, too, am waiting to see reviews. Yeah, the 8.4 would have been nice to have the s pen. For now, there's the Note 8; pretty nice, but the screen isn't on par with these.

There's 2 lines the tab pro and the note pro.

They have the same specs except that the note pro line comes with the s-pen. Both lines will be available in 8,10 and 12 inch variants.

Unfortunately, the 8.4 pro is not offered in the note line. You cannot get the new 8.4 inch tablet with an S-pen.

That being said, I am thinking of picking one of these up. I don't really need one considering I already have the iPaid Air and Nexus 7, but at least an 8.4 inch tablet would be a size I don't already have! Seems like reasonable justification to me. ;)

A 8.4" Note with S-pen is perfect. Why Samsung stupidly does not offer it? Does Samsung wants us to buy 12.2 Pro or other Tab and then release the Note 8.4" with S-pen later this year?

I'd say thats probably most likely, except when they release it in October 2014 it will be called the Galaxy Note Pro 8.4 (2015 Edition).

Oh I see. I didn't realise this. I got my information from a YouTube video. However I've just read a press release and it seems that the note pro only comes as a 12.2 inches, whereas the tab pro us available in 8, 10 and 12 inch variants.

They have released pricing for the 8.4 tab pro in the uk. It will be £349 and goes on sale towards the end of March, available from clove.co.uk and very.co.uk

I'm leaning towards the 10.1 pro tab. They have also released specs for the tab 4 today. The 10.1 tab 4 gets a quad core processor this time round but the screen stays at 1280 x 800.

I'll have to see what the price difference is between the 10.1 pro tab and the tab 4 10.1. The performance on the tab 2 is more of an issue to me than the screen resolution.


I'm looking to upgrade from my tab 2 10.1

I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and it is great and i'm very happy with it. :)


CES 2015 is just around the corner i just wonder if Samsung are going to announce the new Tab Pro models at CES 2015? I really hope so. :)

But I heard Samsung discontinued the Tab Pro line? I don't know weather that is true or not...

I did end up with the tab pro 10.1:cool:

I'm also looking forward to what Samsung announce next week.

Yes I think Samsung have discontinued the pro line in favour of their S line.
