Customers who want a tablet with cellular connectivity don’t have too much of a choice, at least when it comes to Verizon Wireless. Today, however, two new devices joined the carrier’s portfolio. In addition to the LG G Pad 8.3 4G LTE, Verizon also launched another Android tablet, the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro LTE. Unlike the LG offering which for a limited time is offered at a pretty affordable price of $99, the Galaxy Note Pro LTE is considerably way more expensive. The tablet will set you back a whopping $749.99 and mind you that this price includes a two-year contract. If you want the slate with month to month service, it will cost you $100 more, that is $849.99.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro LTE for Verizon
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 4G LTE is the largest tablet available in Verizon portfolio. At 12.2 inches diagonally the device is huge. The massive screen offers a respectable resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels which works out to a pixel density of 247 ppi. Even though the Galaxy Note Pro’s measurements are impressive, the device is actually pretty lightweight tipping the scales at just 1.70 pounds. The tablet is also quite slim with a profile measuring only 7.8 mm in thickness.
The LTE-enabled Galaxy Note Pro is driven by a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and has 3 GB of RAM on board along with 32 GB of internal memory. There is also a microSD slot for storage expansion compatible with up to 64 GB cards. In addition to its 8-megapixel rear camera, the tablet also has a 2-megapixel front-facing sensor. The former is capable of 1080p video capture while the latter records video at 720p.
The slate is powered by a hefty 9,500 mAh battery which can provide up to 15 hours of usage time or up to 29 days of standby time. Like other Note device, the Galaxy Note Pro LTE comes with S Pen stylus and a Wacom digitizer. The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s new Magazine UI and is pre-loaded with an assortment of useful apps such as Hancom Office, Action Memo, S Note, S Voice, Scrapbook, Side Sync 3.0, WatchON and more.
