The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro has a desktop-inspired interface thanks to tools like Multi Window and the new Magazine-style layout. The Android tablet with a 12.2-inch HD display also has a laptop-inspired price.
Verizon Wireless has announced that the Galaxy Note Pro is now on sale for $849.99. That's a high price tag for a tablet, but it's possible to get a discount. Customers willing to sign-up for a two-year contract will pay only $749.99. Not quite the bargain.
Tablet connoisseurs tend to pay high prices to get better tablets, but the Galaxy Note Pro will test the willingness of consumers to spend big. Someone can purchase a serviceable laptop at these prices, so Samsung's inclusion of productive software and S Pen creativity will have to deliver big to warrant the purchase. Verizon's 4G LTE network can be paired with the tablet for $10 per month when added to an existing Share Everything account.
