Samsung opened the pre-order books for the Galaxy Note 12.2 Pro in the United Kingdom. The top-end Android tablet is priced at £649 ($1076; Ä788) for a Wi-Fi version with octa-core Exynos chipset at Samsungís official online store.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is available in black or white, and is scheduled to ship next week, on February 4. Samsung will ship the pre-ordered units with a free bundled premium Gamepad (an £80 item on its own) in addition to the wide array of free software goodies.
