About a week ago, the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 went up for pre-order from Samsung and Carphone Warehouse in the UK. On Thursday, it became available, so you can walk in and pick one up after you drop about £650 down on the device. It's pretty expensive, but then again I kind of expected it to be since their Galaxy Note 10.1 was around $550, and the NotePRO 12.2 is the same thing but bigger.
The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 features a 12.2-inch 2560×1600 resolution display. The WiFi model is also packing the Exynos 5 Octa processor which is a 1.9GHz quad-core and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor rolled into one. The LTE model will be sporting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 on board. The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 also has 3GB of RAM, and is running Android 4.4 KitKat along with a 8MP shooter on the back, and a 2MP shooter on the front. There's also a 9500mAh battery powering this bad boy. As far as storage goes, we're looking at 32GB and 64GB sizes, with a microSD card slot which will give you up to 64 additional gigabytes.
Samsung's latest entry into the Galaxy Note line is on sale today at Carphone Warehouse and John Lewis. And it will cost you about £650, so if you're prepared to drop that kind of cash, go right ahead. It should be launching in the US in the next week or so. The other Galaxy TabPRO tablets that were announced at CES (the 8.4-inch, 10.1-inch and 12.2-inch models) should be going on sale later this quarter, in other words by the end of March – according to Samsung.
The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is by no means cheap, but it is a pretty high-end tablet. And with the new Magazine UX that they are touting, I'm excited to check one out myself. How many of you are going to pick one up when it's available in your country?
