$399 would equate to around £250 in the UK and if the US was paying what £349 is, it would be more like $570 for you guys.
I'm a major Samsung supporter and major Samsung fan. I've had a couple of Samsung Tabs in the past, and at present have the Galaxy Tab 7.7. This has a Super AMOLED plus screen which has been exceptional and unsurpassed on a sub 9" device since it was released. (OK so only just beaten by the recent Nexus 7 v2.0).
So my Tab 7.7 has held up very well. And while I paid £349 for it back when I got it 2 years ago, I am seriously disappointed to see the new Tab Pro 8.4 come in @ £349. There's a lot more competition out there now and it should have been priced as such. I would maybe have stretched too £299 for it as a fanboi, and had hoped for it might be as low as £249. (i.e. US Price)
But seriously Samsung? £349 in the UK?
Sorry Samsung, but you just lost a sale. Don't expect stellar sales at that price.
Meantime I'l keep my 7.7.
OK People,. I'm going to have to eat my own words here. I just ordered one of these. However, if you order it direct from Samsung UK, it comes with a (limited time offer) 32GB SD Card.
But the ONLY reason I succumbed was I was able to nab an additional 10% off my order with a guaranteed next day delivery.
So I'm kind of happy. And yea, clearly still a fanboi.
P.S. Anyone looking for an immaculately kept, loving cared for, scratch free screen spanking new looking 7.7 running JB4.1.2?
