Samsung’s new 2-in-1 Windows tablet with a detachable keyboard and support for an optional Bluetooth pen goes on sale this week. The company introduced the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S at CES in January, promising it’d be available in February.
Better late than never. The tablet will be available from Best Buy starting March 18th. The Microsoft Store and Samsung.com will begin selling the tablet April 4th.
As I suspected, the tablet has a starting price of $899, which is the same as the starting price for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
Samsung’s tablet features a 12 inch, 2160 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display, an Intel Core M3 Skylake processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB to 256GB of solid-state storage.
The tablet has a 5,2000 mAh battery, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and NFC. It features a 5,200 mAh battery and 5MP cameras on the front and back.
The Galaxy TabPro S measures 0.5 inches thick and weighs 1.5 pounds when used without the keyboard cover. Unlike the Surface Pro 4, Samsung’s tablet comes with the keyboard. But if you want a digital pen, you’ll need to buy it separately.
