Verizon Selling Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 for $750 On-contract

By - Source: Verizon | B 8 comments

Samsung's largest tablet is also its priciest.

Way back in February, we found out that the Galaxy Note Pro was going to cost a whopping $850 when it launched in the United States. The price came by way of a pre-order page from Office Depot. However, if you were hoping you might save some cash by getting one on contract, you're going to be a little disappointed by the latest news.

 

Sprint launched the tablet today, and the company is selling it for the same $850 price that you'll get at Office Depot. If you sign a contract (which we all know doesn't always work out better for cost in the long run), you'll still need to cough up $750 up front. That's $750 on top of a two-year contract priced out at $30 per month minimum (this was the cheapest plan we could get when placing an order as a new customer through Verizon's website).

For your money, you'll get a 12.2-inch WQXGA for a Samsung Exynos 5 (or a Snapdragon 800 for the LTE model), an 8-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel lens up front, 3 GB of RAM, up to 64 GB of storage, S Pen support and Samsung's brand new Magazine UX. Magazine UX allows users to display up to four windows at once and features customizable tiles for favorite apps that can be resized and rearranged to your heart's content.

    a USABLE ipad Air is gonna run you at least $729.99. The price's arent that bad considering the hardware. The screen on this thing is why it cost so much money. almost 13"s of goodness. It has the same resolution as a 27" Apple iMac.

    $750 for an Android tablet.... talk about insanity. I'll spend a little more for a Surface Pro 2 and get a tablet running a real OS and real software.
    You are the resident apple troll who bashes anything not american! You go on and on about how heavy such and such a tablet is and here you are bashing Samsung again and saying how you would buy a surface 2 tablet which is huge thick and heavy and not to mention it gets real hot!This destroys ANY Apple tablet and you know it therefore you mention microsoft who can barely sell their huge heavy tablets that drain batteries in the blink of an eye.Android is a REAL OS unlike IOS which is just a glorified app launcher. On android you have real multitask and with IOS you can only run one window at a time!AS ALWAYS...SAMSUNG FTW !!! HOOAH!
    For $850, you might as well get a Surface Pro 2 with full Windows 8 with FULL applications. Plus, a lot of Android apps won't even come close to utilizing the hardware that this has... But, keep ranting about the $850 android tablet that you'll never buy...
