Samsung Galaxy Note Pro LTE launched by Verizon, hefty price attached

Verizon today started selling the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE - about one month after the Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet was released in the US.

As you’d expect, Verizon’s Galaxy Note Pro is really expensive. It costs $749.99 with a new 2-year contract agreement, or $849.99 without contract. Mind you, this is the variant with 32GB of internal memory, not the 64GB one.

The Galaxy Note Pro is Samsung’s largest tablet ever, sharing this honor (?) with the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2. The huge 12.2-inch display of the Note Pro has a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution and a 247 ppi density. The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and offers powerful features, including 3GB of RAM, and a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. Like all Galaxy Note devices, the Note Pro comes with an S Pen stylus.

Another new Android tablet that’s available at Verizon starting today is the LG G Pad 8.3. This is significantly cheaper than Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro, being offered for as low as $99.99 on contract.

get what you pay for? At that dont get much other than a pretty screen. Surface pro 2 would be better, and is better. Or an older windows 8 tablet, like the Lenovo Lynx 11.6in tablet for 1/3 the price. Dear lord that thing is pricey

No need to panic, this shall pass too; in four months price will come crashing. They are trying to get the first sacrifice lamb.

I'd love to have the LG GPad 8.3 , but it comes with only 16GB and that is a big fat no no in tablets for me. Must have at least 32GB and I prefer 64 GB and it must have 3 Gs of Ram. Nothing less will do in a tablet for me.
