The tablets are driven by Android 4.4 and can be purchased from Samsung's online store, Amazon, Best Buy and Tiger Direct. The Galaxy NotePRO tablets include support for the S Pen, and offer some of the same features seen on Sammy's other Galaxy Note devices including Multi Window, handwriting-to-text, Air Command, and Pen Window.
Unavailable at the moment in the Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 12.2. That model will become available in March. Later this quarter, Verizon will offer a version of the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 with 4G LTE connectivity.

Surface Pro 2 is the best productive tablet! The Note Pro 12" is pretty much a giant flagship Android ft. Touchwiz toy for those who have extra money to spend. (Not like there is anything wrong with that though) I believe it's more expensive than the iPad Air because of the display size. The 10" one is what compares to the iPad Air, and... well, the price matches.

Samsung also has their own group of fans. Their price are not cheap now especially outside U.S. Remember their U.S handset is lock down and require a U.S sim card to unlock before it could be use worldwide.

You have mental issues ? $850 is laptop money , and you're using it on a mobile device . Tell me what the cheaper tabpro 8.4 can't do but the note pro can ? Except for the Spen features

I had a chance to play with the Note PRO 12.2 It's actually lighter than I expected. It felt sturdy and that display looked gorgeous. But i agree with the above comments, for the price i would rather buy a laptop or a Surface. To each their own :)

While yes, one can certainly purchase a laptop for the price of a GN 12.2, I believe it all comes down to needs along with a lot of pros & cons to look at. In all fairness, I haven't been able to physically play with a GN 12.2, but from the previews & reviews, Samsung seems to realize that it isn't a cheap by, therefore I'd say this is one of the first Android based slates geared to provide competirion against notebooks. I must admit Android tablets haven't provided the most "productive" experiences in the past, due in part to size & software, but Samsung seems to of addressed some of these issues. Many people look at factors such as a relatively maintenance free OS , ease of use, expense associated with upgrading, productivity & portability. I point these few things out as these aren't really the shining points for windows based notebooks byvsome accounts. Again, even with the redesigned Samsung UX, it likely won't offer all that a Windows machine will, but it will certainly make a viable alternative for many people who are very much familiar with Samsung's Android & would like that continuity among devices in addition to something that will fill the void of a PC. Without going any further, I'm beginning to believe this may be a great alternative for those looking outside of a PC or Mac for their computer-like needs. The additional S-Pen functionality may be a big big factor in convincing potential consumers this may be the way to go when looking for a device to fill productivity & multimedia needs.
