KOREAN HARDWARE MAKER Samsung announced on Thursday that its Galaxy Tab Pro tablets have gone up for pre-order in the UK ahead of their release in early March.
However, we think Samsung might have got a little confused. The firm informed The INQUIRER this morning that the 8.4in, 10.1in and 12.2in models are now available to pre-order from its online store, but at present only the smaller models are available. The 8.4in Galaxy Tab Pro is priced at £349, while the 10.1in model costs £449.
It's still unclear how much the 12.2in model will cost, but we hope it will be cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet, which recently went on sale for £649.
According to the website, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4in and 10.1in tablets will start shipping on 4 March before they arrive in shops on 6 March.
Samsung also said that the tablet line is available to pre-order from both Carphone Warehouse and Shop Direct, although they have not shown up yet at either online store.
As the tablet line's name suggests, the three Galaxy Tab Pro models are aimed at business users. That hasn't stopped Samsung from trashing the iPad Air in its latest advert for the tablet series, as seen below. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is thinner than a pencil, trumps the iPad on multitasking, and has a better display.
