Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 Review: Conclusion
Samsung is clearly not aiming for the casual small tablet user with the new Galaxy TabPRO 8.4. Not when it starts at $399 while best-sellers like the Google (GOOG) Nexus 7 or Amazon (AMZN) Kindle Fire HDX are priced at least $150 less.
However, Apple proved there is a market for a $399 compact tablet with its iPad Mini with Retina Display (also priced starting at $399). The question is, can the willingness to pay the so-called “Apple tax” translate into the Android tablet world, where powerful hardware at cut-rate prices has become the norm?
One thing that became clear during the course of this Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 review is that Samsung is hoping that the price premium will be overlooked by business and professional users. If nothing else, it’s worth a try, and that’s one of the things SSNLF does best — continually trying new approaches until it finds something that’s a hit.
