Two of Samsung’s recently announced high-end tablets, the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 and Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 are now available for purchase in the U.S. from various retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg. The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is priced at $749.99, while the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 is priced quite a bit lower at $499.99 (though you only get 16GB storage on it, while the NotePRO has 32GB), and both black and white versions of the two tablets are available.
Both tablets share similar specs apart from the noticeable difference in screen size and battery capacity (8,220 mAh on the TabPRO vs. 9,500 mAh on the NotePRO.) The hardware includes an octa-core Exynos 5 processor clocked at 1.9GHz, 3 GB of RAM (2GB on the TabPRO), 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS + GLONASS connectivity. On the software front, you get Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s new Magazine UX, and improved versions of multitasking features like Multi Window. On the Galaxy NotePRO, you get the S Pen as well, and both tablets feature the faux leather backs that debuted on the Galaxy Note 3.
