Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 will finally be out on March 9
The huge Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 now has an official release date in the US of A: March 9. That’s this coming Sunday, by the way, and it’s when you’ll finally be able to purchase the humongous tablet from a myriad of outlets, among which are Samsung’s own online store, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry’s, and Newegg.
The pricing has already been announced, back when we thought that the Tab Pro 12.2 would be in stores on February 13. That didn’t happen, but the amount you’ll need to shell out for the tablet hasn’t changed. It’s still mighty expensive at $649.99 for the Wi-Fi-only version with 32 GB of internal storage space. When you consider the built-in storage, though, this becomes only $50 higher priced than the equivalent iPad Air, which only has a 9.7-inch screen. So there’s that.
Both Android Central and Phandroid are reporting that the availability information comes straight from Samsung. The Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 has a 12.2-inch 2,560×1,600 SC-LCD touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, a 1.9 GHz octa-core Exynos processor, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (with MIMO), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card support, and a 9,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat from the get-go.
