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.
