You know what they say about big tablets, right? Big prices. And Samsung’s new 12.2-inch line of Android tablets is currently about as big as they come — with a price-tag to match.

Verizon is now taking orders for the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with integrated LTE radio for $849, although you can save $100 upfront by agreeing to a new 2-year contract. By comparison, if you drop the LTE and the included S-Pen, Samsung’s similar Tab Pro 12.2 will cost $649 when it becomes available this Sunday.

Verizon hasn’t made any formal announcements about this product launch, likely because the cost is relatively high when compared to other tablets with 32 GB of internal storage. Instead, I caught word of it through Unwired View, which noticed the product sale.

I only had a brief time to spend with the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 at January’s Consumer Electronics Show, although I do have a review unit in-house and will soon be sharing my thoughts.

The premium price for this tablet is due to two main reasons.¬†First is the size and high-resolution screen. The 12.2-inch display has more room to work than other slates and everything is crisp due to the 2560 x 1600 resolution panel. Second, all of that extra room comes in handy when multitasking; the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 can run up to four Android applications at once on the screen. Keep in mind that not every Android app supports the multitasking feature; most are Samsung’s own apps.

The idea behind the product’s capabilities is to bring even more traditional PC use-cases to a tablet, so it’s likely that the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is more attractive to the enterprise and consumers that might want to ditch the laptop for a tablet yet still be productive. Based on my early impressions of the slate, I think some folks will be able to do just that — provided they’re willing to pay a premium.
