Samsung is likely to introduce the productivity powerhouse Galaxy Note Pro WiFi tablet this Valentine's Day. Office Depot had a product page indicating the Galaxy Note Pro 64GB will be available for $849, which was spotted by Engadget.
The price of the Galaxy Note Pro is pretty hefty compared to other Android tablets. But this new tablet from Samsung aims to take productivity to tablets a notch higher. This slate is 12.2-inches and it can run up to four applications on screen simultaneously. This tablet can be a laptop replacement for a wider market.
According to a preorder page on Office Depot, Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 64GB is set to be $849. This is a bit cheaper than the UK version, which is only in 32 GB but costs over $1,000.
Currently, Galaxy Note Pro 64GB is expected to ship on Feb. 13. Samsung has not made any official reports regarding the release date of the tablet. It is not known when the 32 GB variant will be available or if there will be the LTE version coming soon.
Galaxy Note Pro sports 12.2-inches WQXGA for a Snapdragon 800 for the LTE variant or Samsung Exynos 5, 8MP sensor rear camera, 2MP front camera, 3GB of RAM, S Pen support, new Magazine UX and 64GB of storage. The new Magazine UX allows users to have up to four Windows at the same time featuring customizable tiles for chosen apps rearranged and resized to your preference.
It is still early to tell whether Samsung achieved the productivity powerhouse with Galaxy Note Pro. Samsung has yet to face tough competition with the capable touchscreen laptops and Chromebooks. But S Pen support is definitely an advantage for Samsung.
