Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 reaching the U.S. on February 13th priced at $850 Samsung's large 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 finally has a U.S. release date and price.
On the specs side, the tablet runs on Android 4.4, has a 2560 x 1600 pixel display, is powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, Wi-Fi/LTE and 8MP/2MP cameras.

Samsung has aimed to create "professional" tablets that can be used instead of a regular laptop. This is the same goal Microsoft has tried to achieve with their Surface Pro Windows tablets. For example, the Note Pro includes four-pane multiwindow multitasking and layered pop-up windows for multitasking. You can resize the windows and even open up the same app twice. Bluetooth accessories will be offered through Samsung.

The company has created a new home screen layout, as well, dubbed Magazine UI. The layout provides full tiles of apps with information that can be customized and configured. The tiles are similar to the live tiles in Windows 8.1 but that was probably the point. Note Pro 12.2 devices ship with an updated S Pen stylus.

Samsung will sell the Note Pro 12.2 for $850 starting on February 13th, with pre-orders starting now at some retailers like Office Depot.
