Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 available from March 9


In before "with only a gb of free space"

Glad to see it rolling out

You really should see the crap I don't post. Sorry if honesty offends you

I am going with the painful note pro 12.2 but work is buying it.

Why is it painful? I picked up the logictech keyboard case today, used it all day for work. Best of both worlds now. Laptop can stay on desk or at home.....

I actually think it's well priced for the market. I bought a 9.7" 32gb ipad air for $599. I would have considered this greatly if it had been introduced sooner.

Samsung's pricing is crazy. They're just saturating the market with a gillion tablets to compete with Apple. I wouldn't mind having the Note 12.2, but not at that price. Looks like I'll be moving to a Windows 8.1 tablet. A couple of commenters about this at Engadget said the Note 12.2 was having some problems for some owners, like performance and screen issues, and lags when browsing and light bleed, which if true is pretty bad.

It's a nice tablet, not perfect but it is nice. If you think a Windows 8.1 tablet is the ticket good luck! The app selection is absolutely pathetic and if you are looking at a Pro tablet with full Windows you will realize full Windows on a 10-11 inch tablet is not as functional as you thought after a couple weeks and wish you got an Android or iPad. As for the Note 12.2 performance it's really good but Chrome scrolling is not so great, although page download speeds are really good. The built in browser is screaming fast but i prefer Chrome syncing so I continue to use it despite some chopping scrolling here and there. Actually Chrome scrolling is about the only negative about the entire tablet other then price tag and Google has committed to improving Chrome performance drastically this year so it will get better as time goes on. As for light bleed I have not checked it with a light bleed tool because I figure it you don't notice it in daily normal use what is the point of using a tool to test it. I don't watch movies on a tablet and a dark movie is about the only time I would notice any light bleed so in my case it's irrelevant. I can understand wanting to bad month this tablet because of the price tab but I will say it's easily without any doubt the best tablet on the market right now...

I would rather use a Win RT tablet than any iOS tablet. Only Samsungs tablets with multiview even comes close.
It's not even about the apps but the multiview modes that makes Win RT and Samdroid usable for working with data.
1 app at a time tablets is just a toy. If you're also talking about full x86 win 8.1 tablets , then the app selection explodes to include standard x86 windows.
Secondly, Chrome on Android is rubbish, use Opera Mobile (not mini), it is the best browser for Android. I would even use Dolphin or Maxthon before Chrome. Tab syncing is overated.

I love my laptop which I got in December because I needed it. I was talked into yhe ipad and am unhappy. Luckily I gave a buyer and not losing a dime. I purchased on ebay the Samsung 8.0 Note tablet and am happy again. We use the opad at work but on a personal level can't use apps am familiar with and like. It has a nice screen but that is all.
Samsung has the best product lineup. Just wish the pto was less expensive.

Yeh I love my Note 8 very much and is my goto tablet. Saw Samsungs new Tab Pro 8.3 and can't wait for the Note version to get the hires screen.
People just don't understand how to take advantage of a Note tablet because they are used to finger stabbing ipads.
I've had people watch me use my Note 8 and then they look at their iPad Air and tell me they paid double for the ipad and would kill to have the active stylus and multiview.

Stop using the adjective "whopping" in reviews. Android Central is a tech site for tech users. This should not be a watered down review meant for people who only use a tablet to watch their favorite YouTube video.
