Samsung's previously announced TabPRO 12.2 finally has a release date – March 9th. The giant tablet will cost $649.99 through retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg, and direct from Samsung. This device is basically the new NotePRO without the stylus, but you don't really have many choices in huge tablets. Samsung is the only game in town.
The LG G Pad 8.3 is a capable tablet with a great form factor. The bummer when it launched was the price. It has come down a bit since then, and with a new sale at Newegg, you can get it for a solid price – just $224.99 in black or white.
In case you're not familiar, the G Pad 8.3 has a Snapdragon 600, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an 8.3-inch 1920x1200 LCD.
Update: @evleaks may not have been the first one to get pictures of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 out, but better late than never (if you could even really call this late). Here he is with an image that looks to confirm what @gadgetleaks has shared.

Earlier today @evleaks shared information on Sony's upcoming Xperia Tablet Z2. If his intel is accurate, the sequel to last year's tablet will come with a 10.1" 1920x1200 display, a Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 6000mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and KitKat.
A bit of new information out of @evleaks points to possible specs for the still unannounced Sony Xperia Tablet Z2. The first one was a big departure for Sony's past tablet designs, but it was also a good device. If the leaked specs are to be believed, the sequel is going to be a lot like the first one – a little too much like it, perhaps.
Samsung's latest and greatest (read: largest) tablets are about to hit the streets, and the noted leaker @evleaks has gotten a peek at the Verizon-branded version of the NotePRO. Before you know it, you'll be taking out a second mortgage on your home to pick up this beaut.

With the exception of the gigantic LTE logo, this tablet looks more or less like the WiFi device which will be sold for $750-850.
Some companies have made a business out of selling high-quality Android slates at a good price by making the right compromises. Other companies, are Archos. The newest devices from the French tablet maker are the three Neon tablets, the 90 Neon, 97 Neon, and 101 Neon.
These three devices are all packed in the same general size range. The 90 Neon has a 9-inch 800x480 screen, which will probably look fairly awful.
If Samsung has not yet scared you away with its recent indiscretions, the new NotePRO 12.2 can be pre-ordered in the UK. You won't even have to wait very long for this stylus-friendly monster to ship. Samsung expects the NotePro (Samsung usually leaves the screen size off) to hop a truck to your home on February 4th.
The NotePro is very similar to the previously announced 2014 version of the Note 10.1, except for the size, of course.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra has a 6.4-inch screen, which is dangerously close to the the tablet side of things. Apparently Sony agrees – a new version of the Xperia Z Ultra has been announced in Japan that does away with the cellular connectivity. Now it's just a tiny tablet instead of a monstrously huge phone.
Dell began sending out Android 4.3 updates to it's budget Atom-based Android tablets late last year, but it's been a super-slow rollout. Well, now it's picking up steam. The OTA should be hitting both tablets soon, if not already.
