New Galaxy NotePro tablet available to preorder

Samsung’s giant tablet is now available to pre-order.

The 12.2-inch Galaxy NotePro was initially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier in January and will set users back £649. It will be released for general sale from February 4th.

Designed for professionals, the tablet is at the very top end of the market in terms of price. It comes with an S pen smart stylus for more accurate drawing work.

The battery life of the NotePro is up to 13 hours and it boasts an eight-core processor. There is a choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

In terms of its cameras, there is a two-megapixel one at the front for video calling and an eight-megapixel one at the rear.

The Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet weighs 750 g, while the 3G/LTE one is marginally heavier at 753 g.

At the moment, the Wi-Fi-only model can be pre-ordered, with no indication of when the 3G/LTE one will hit the shelves.

The first 300 people to pre-order the mammoth tablet will receive a free GamePad, worth £90.
