Let’s be real, when Samsung announced that they’d be launching an uncompromising, super premium tablet line packed to the brim with as many high-end specs as they could throw at it, the one word they never used to describe them was “affordable.”
Beginning today, at least one model is now available for pre-order from Office Depot: the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. The tablet begins shipping on Feb. 13th (lining up with our tip that they’d be launching in time for Valentine’s Day) for the whopping price of $850. Before you flip, here’s the premium hardware included in the pricing…
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro comes equipped with the Note-lines trademark S Pen and a huge 12.2-inch 2560×1600 display, Exynos octa-core processor, 64GB of internal storage and micro SD card slot, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear/2MP front facing cameras, 9,500mAh battery, and powered by Android 4.4 KitKat.
UPDATE: It looks like the regular Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is also up for pre-order (thanks, Raitchison!). The Tab Pro packs the same specs as the Note Pro, only manages to do away with the S Pen for a $200 discount. At $650, that’s not a bad deal for those that don’t mind using their finger the old fashioned way when messing with their tab.
Don’t forget, we got up close and personal with these very same tablets during last month’s CES, in case you need a little refresher before pulling the trigger. Hands-on video, followed by pre-order links, can be found below.
