Samsung Galaxy NotePRO: the best alternatives

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO: the best alternatives
Samsung argues that its newly-announced 12" stylus-wielding NotePRO with extremely high resolution display offers the ultimate in productivity, and there is nothing like it around at the moment. We can't argue much with the last point, as this is the largest member of the Note family, introducing Samsung to the world of 12" slates - one of the few screen diagonals it hadn't covered until now. 

While the new TabPRO 8.4, 10.1 and 12.2 slates might seem like Samsung is just throwing screen sizes at the wall to see what sticks with people, the NotePRO is one of a kind, thanks to its S Pen stylus, though as far as alternatives go you can dig up some worthy opponents in the smorgasbord of tablets, hybrids and convertibles coming our way these days. Let's see which ones are good to consider alongside Samsung's new NotePRO.

Damn, that Vaio and Lenovo are sexy looking. Note looks good also, but I'd prefer black one.

vaio tap is king, and the new 8in asus has a pen that can hold its own. While waving your finger to do stuff, it is no faster in my use on the note3 than just simply clicking the tile. For me the stylus is a tool for people to do art, keyboards will rule in efficiency and speed for entering actual data. A pen for art, etc however rules. There is a reason the stylus was not a favorite in the old days, it is still clunky, at least imo and my experiences with the note.

Note Pro 12.2 LTE can be use to make phone call. I still waiting for a high end windows 8.1 tablet that is phone enabled. I like one device do all concept.
