Samsung has kicked off the CES madness with four tablets that will accommodate to all users. These come in a variety of sizes and types, but in this post we will talk about the Galaxy TabPROs.

These come in 3 different sizes: 12.2 inches, 10.1 inches and 8.4 inches. It is not often that we see a 12.2-inch device, making this a rather interesting device. Are these worth your time and hard-earned money, though? Let’s look at what Samsung is offering.

TabPRO 12.2

Thee are some powerful tablets with amazing screen resolutions. As we can see, they are mostly the same except for size and form-factor. One small (but important) difference is that the TabPRO 12.2 does have one more GB of RAM. With 3 GB of RAM, the TabPRO 12.2 should be the best option for those who appreciate good multi-tasking power and large displays.

I am more of an 8-inch screen kind of guy, so if I were to choose between one of these I would go for the 8.4-inch version. There is nothing like the portability of a 7-8 inch tablet. What would you buy?

We are not sure what the price on these bad boys will be just yet, but be sure we will try to get all the details while we are at CES! If you are interested, though, we do know these will be available globally starting Q1, 2014.

Stay tuned for more details! We have hands-on videos coming.
