Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 vs TabPRO 12.2 vs iPad Air: specs comparison
Among the more intriguing new tablets that made an appearance at this year's Consumer Electronics Show is the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2. Actually, the same can easily be said about its relative, the TabPRO 12.2, which tends to be identical, except for the lack of an S Pen stylus. However, when the topic is 'tablets', there's one device that's still way up there, above all others, and that's Apple's iPad. Its latest edition, the iPad Air, not only brought the state-of-the-art A7 SoC, but also introduced a brand new, thin and light design that can make almost any other 10" tablet out there look and feel chubby.

That said, Samsung's latest slates are decidedly high-end. Both the NotePRO and the TabPRO have high-resolution screens (2560 x 1600 pixels), along with the tried and true Snapdragon 800 chipset (though in some markets that's going to be replaced by Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa). Add a complete set of connectivity features, loads of RAM and easy memory expansion, and you've got some pretty solid products here that could make some people consider substituting their iTunes-powered tablets with something a bit more Samsung-ish. Well, if you're one of those people standing at a crossroad, perhaps we can help you out with a useful specs comparison, such as the one below? Sure, we can't comment on how the overall user experiences compare yet, but at least we can have a nice and informative overview of how the hardware stacks up, right? OK, then, let's do this!
