    Default Anybody else pre-order their Galaxy Note Pro 12.2?

    I'm waiting for the 32GB version. Should be delivered on the 14th via Amazon (overnight).

    I know there's plenty of folks not interested in a large expensive android tablet. But I'm actually rather intrigued by this form factor. Thin, relatively light weight (for it's size), nice large high-res screen, long battery life, portable, etc. I think it would be great for videos, surfing, e-mail, and even playing some games. You know, media consumption with a little productivity on the side when I'm not sitting at my workstation or don't feel like lugging around my 15" notebook.

    I've had plenty of ultrabooks and 7-10" tablets, but obviously nothing quite like this. So I'm interested to see how it works out with some real world usage.

    Any other thoughts?

    My first thought is "What about a case and screen protector?"

    Mine arrived Wednesday, case hopefully in next couple of days, all l can really say its big and as my first Samsung tablet its taken me a bit of time together my head round it I will say its still quite easy to hold one handed. Old nexus 10 goes to new owner today so there's no going back.

    How are you liking it? Does it perform well or does it have the occasional hiccup/stutter?

    I haven't noticed any stuttering but haven't really put it through its paces yet, that's what the weekends for.

    I'm personally not big on screen protectors, although I'm sure the usual stuff will be available. But I've already found a couple cases on Amazon, some already in stock. Plus Samsung has their book cover, not to mention the nifty Logitech keyboard case that will be released in a month or two.

    That was a big issue with my Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. Look forward to more updates!

    I placed my pre-order yesterday (32GB/black) for delivery Feb 14. It'll be my first Samsung tablet, so it should be interesting to learn my way around it.

    It's too bad the Logitech keyboard case won't be immediately available, as I want to try to use it as a productivity machine. I'll probably pick up one of the cheap cases as a stop-gap, and use the Logitech BT keyboard I've been using for my N7.

    You'll find the Note pro infinitely more functional than the Nexus 7

    How is touchwiz on it? What's different from the '14 Note 10.1 (if you've used one of those)?

    I've never been a fan of Touch Wiz either, but this is the "new and improved" UI called Magazine UX. At least from the videos, is looks rather different from the old TW. At least the launcher did. Was there anything in particular you didn't like?

    I'd really hate to use another launcher on a device like this. Then you've pretty much just got a large screen android tablet with boring little icons and widgets all over the place.

    I might have been harsh, never having used touch wiz before. My previous tablets have been Nexus 7/10 and lg g pad and it feels a bit simplistic, the icons seem overly large like stretched 10 and there's (unless I've deleted it by accident) no bar with your most regular apps on it.

    I quite like the magazine ux, basically a personable news page, again I've not delved to deeply into it yet.

    Hopefully the case turns up this week as I tend to hold a tablet by the case and I'm being a bit gentle with it at the moment.

    I will say it seems lag free at the moment and I'm sure when I've personalised it up a bit it will be far better. Could do with some wallpapers for it that aren't to stretched.

    I really want one of these, as I am taking a vacation in Scandinavia later this year and do not want to bring a full laptop, but still have something to watch movies on or do web browsing and games while in hotels. I also really want to be able to review pictures taken with my digital camera. Does it have a full USB 3 port or is it a mini port? Has anyone tried connecting a portable hard drive or SD card reader? Is it even possible?

    From the specs and pictures, it's just a normal micro-USB port, although it is USB 3.0 like the GN3. And it should work with an OTG USB dongle just like other android phones/tablets.

    But yeah, I'm also purchasing this instead of a much more expensive Ultrabook. We'll see how it goes.

    I'm dying to have one for drawing along with the other common stuff. But yet the price is just a little too high. I need just a little more and I'll have enough. So keep posting updates on what you like/dislike about it!

    I got mine for drawing too, even though I'm completely untalented. I still enjoy drawing really badly, and the 12.2 gives you loads of room. The screen is also big enough at last for the split screen function to be useful. Side by side with my 2014 10.1 it looks huge, but you soon stop noticing the size once you use it. I usually have mine propped up on my ample stomach, so the weight increase isn't an issue either

    So far I'm loving it, and I prefer the new Recent Apps button to the old menu button, but I still don't like the hardware buttons as I'm always pressing them accidentally, especially in apps that won't allow me to rotate them. Not that it stopped me from buying the 12.2, obviously.

    After doing a bit of research on OTG USB dongles, I went ahead and pre-ordered a 64gb version from Amazon.com and the Logitech keyboard/case.

    You were able to order the Logitech case? When I placed my order it was listed as Unavailable. I just grabbed a cheap $15 case to protect it until the Logitech becomes available.

    Haha cool well you will definitely have to tell me how you like it then since I want to buy it for the same reasons. And trust me drawing is basically like playing an instrument, the more you do it the better you get. I draw soo much but I'm still not that great. I am doing some art videos on my YouTube channel. I just opened it up lol I don't know if it'll help you or not but it is worth a shot I'm no professional by wayyyyyy far haha but I think I have a few things that I can teach and I also do gaming and tech videos too but if it helps let me know and if not I'll try to get better but draw with jazza is an amazing channel that I just love!!

    Here is my channel:

    Here is draw with jazza:

    Make sure to tell me how you like the note pro
