Samsung Galaxy Note Pro for AT&T (SM-P907A) revealed by the FCC
The SM-P907A diagram revealed by the FCC has AT&T’s logo on it, and definitely resembles the back of the Note Pro that we’ve seen plenty of times until now. Moreover, the new tablet features LTE band 2, band 4 and band 17 - exactly the bands used by AT&T.
Unfortunately, for now we don’t know when AT&T will release its Note Pro, and neither for what price.
Of course, the Galaxy Note Pro is already available in the US. You can buy its SM-P900 Wi-Fi-only variant for $699.99, or Verizon’s LTE-capable SM-P905V variant for $749.99 on contract.
The Galaxy Note Pro is Samsung’s largest and heaviest tablet (weighing 750 grams). It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and offers lots of high-end features, including a 12.2-inch display with 2560 x 1600 pixels, 3GB of RAM, and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. You should read our Samsung Galaxy Note Pro review to find out more about the tablet.

this is equiped with a s800 soc, and samsung calls a s800 cpu a pro...? lmfao.
this shouldve been with exynos5420 at 2.7ghz. it has a large battery to compensate the amount of power the a15 arm cortex draws in,,,

There are many unhappy customers who have Exynos chips. I don't think Android works well with the 4+4 ARM design. I might go so far as to say the 4+4 BIG.little design is just broken junk, but I am not an ARMchair quarterback :)

when the tab has 7000mah battery it does not need 4x4 cpu, just straight 4xa15 , like the nexus 10 running E5410 but with LTE modem.
on phones it needs 4x4 cause a15 is more powerful than s801 which draws less battery drain, but for tabs theres enough juice to handle a15

BIG.all.the.time 4xA15 would be great. I would think Samsung would put more effort into this sort of arrangement so they'd end up with something twice as powerful as the Nexus 10 chip.

$749? Might as well just get a surface, or better yet Windows 8.1 tablets that are 11.6 that cost half of this.

true, you can pick up intel i3 or a i5 at that price

Windows tablets are a different compromise. You need the beefier processors to run the heavy Windows 8.1 OS (RT is okay with lower power processors). With Windows tablets, you get a lower resolution screen that doesn't scale apps well and is definitely not so great for reading PDFs vs. the Samsung.
If you need a a functional PC (with Win 8.1 vs. RT), then a Windows tablet may be a good choice. Personally, I would need to be paid by Microsoft to have to experience the hassle and pain of using their OS on a tablet.

To each their own, currently using a 11.6in screen that is great. Apps do scale well, including desktop, and has a keyboard dock to boot making it a 16hr laptop.
What app doesnt scale well that you have used? The screen resolution while lower yes, 1366x768, gave me an optional dock, 8hrs of usage, the processor is 'beafier' but when your running 'pro' words around, you need beafier.
I think the display on this thing is amazing, but not $500 more amazing. As well as the one i am using is 110g lighter too.
