For some people, the 10.1 inch tablets available today just aren’t big enough. They want something bigger. Samsung, though, appears happy to cater for them with the release of 12.2 inch tablet. Is it big enough?
Built for people who think bigger really is better, Samsung’s Note Pro is the next evolution of a tablet, raising the size from the 7, 8, and 10 inch models we’ve seen thus far, and introducing something much much bigger, with a 12.2 inch screen.
In a way, it’s like holding the screen out of a laptop, as if you’ve removed the heavy part of an Ultrabook and just decided to take the screen with you, especially since you’re holding a 12 inch display.
For Samsung, this 12 inch display is actually 12.2 inches, and packs in a screen resolution higher than that of Full HD with 2560×1600 showing here. With these two factors, you’ll find a pixel clarity of 247 pixels per inch, not far from what Apple’s Retina-classed MacBook Pro 13 shows (226ppi, and bigger is better).
Two versions will be made, with the differences based on specs and connection options. If you opt for the WiFi only version, you’ll technically find eight cores of power, with a quad core 1.9GHz chip working alongside a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, but only connectivity on WiFi and Bluetooth.
However, if you’re more into having mobile connectivity where ever you go, the 4G LTE version comes equipped with the same chip used in the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
