Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12-inch tablet on sale tomorrow

The giant 12-inch Samsung Galaxy NotePro is up for order tomorrow, with the Galaxy TabPro on its way too.

The giant 12-inch Samsung Galaxy NotePro is up for order today, with the Galaxy TabPro on its way to these shores too.

You can pre-order the NotePro from this link from 28 January, and the first 300 people get a free gamepad worth £90. Which is nice; but what Samsung doesn't yet say is how much the tablet costs or when you can expect it to drop through your letterbox. Update: It costs £649 and is due to be posted on 4 February.

The TabPro comes in a range of sizes, from a pocketable 8.4-inches to an iPad-rivalling 10.1-inches and an oversized 12.2-inches. The NotePro comes in just the one 12.2-inch size. Both new types of Android tablet were revealed for the first time earlier this year at gadget extravaganza CES 2014.

Both 12-inch tablets are essentially the same, except the NotePro comes with an S Pen stylus. Samsung reckons the dinner plate-sized slates come loaded with £420-worth of subscriptions to a range of news services, social media and cloud storage. That includes signing you up to Bloomberg Businessweek+, Blurb, Cisco WebEx Meetings, Dropbox, Evernote, LinkedIn, and the New York Times.

Are you tempted by Samsung's new giant Pro tablets? Is 12-inches too big for a slate? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
