The price is hefty but still cheaper than 64GB iPhone 5s, which costs £709 ($1,175), here in UK. iPad Air 128GB model costs about £639 (1, 060) for Wifi only model.

Why are u comparing this with an iphone?! I will compare it with...ammm surface pro2 ?! And for £100 more u get a 256gb with 8gb of ram pro2. I mean the pro2 is a real productivity tablet...not just an android tablet with a gimmicky pen...what can this do that a nexus 10 won't..?! its a no brainer...I'm amazed at the price..but then again..the fan base is big..

1. Gets your facts right, buddy ! For £719 you get 64GB base model not 256 GB which costs £1,039.

2. You are the first person who said to me S-pen is 'gimmicky'. Don't post comments which make you look stupid. Its productive and creative IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT.

3. Surface Pro 2 is a bit bulky and heavier.

4. Surface Pro 2 has smaller display

5. Surface Pro 2 has lower res display

6. Note pro has rear camera

7. Note Pro can make calls

8. For 64GB model in pro 2, you only get 28-30GB of NON-EXPANDABLE storage.

9. Bigger and better battery life on Note pro.

10. This is just initial pre-order price and will go down after a month or so. Which does not apply to Surface pro 2.

Everyone has his/her needs and according to which they buy/don't buy. No need to simply label 'fan base' who buy products which you don't recommend.

Don't buy it now. For any Samsung product the trick is to wait for few months. They charge very high price for early adopters. Wait for 3-5 months, and you will see the price coming down by 10-15%.

Here's how it should be priced: 8.4 from $350 to undercut the Mini, TabPro 10.1 from $450 to undercut the Air, Note 10.1 2014 from $550, TabPro 12.2 from $600, NotePro 12.2 from $650.

$650 is still a helluva lot more for just an Android (or iOS or WRT) tablet, but it's kinda acceptable with the stunning large screen, large battery, multi-tasking and S-Pen. $750-$800-$900 is just way off the grid, you get a decent laptop for the price, possibly a W8 tablet.

Despite the high price note 10.1 2014 edition keep running out of stock.

I am waiting the the price to fall a bit for 2014 edition then decide between the two either 12.2 larger but heavier device or smaller but a bit dated in its 4.3 android. Tough to decide which is better.

I want to get the note pro but I think I'm going to hold off and see if samsung releases a amoled tablet this year like what was previously rumored.

If i'm gonna own this, Yes I'd wait a few months for the price to come down and besides, gotta first look out for custom roms or how to root first! I hate whatever stock apps samsung has.
