If you think that Samsung's new Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets are hilariously overpriced, you're in good company. As of today, that company includes at least a few people at Amazon and Best Buy. The new 8.4-inch, 10-inch, and 12.2-inch tablets have been given price cuts from $30-50 dollars. They're still really expensive, just slightly less so.

The cost for the Galaxy NotePRO (or Note Pro) 12.2 has dropped by $50 across the board, making the final price for the 32GB models $699.99 and the 64GB version $799.99.

If you're interested in Samsung's new oversized Note PRO or Tab PRO 12.2 devices, it's more than likely because you want to get more done on that beautiful and massive 12.2-inch display. In order to make that happen, you'll need a little bit more than just the tablet, and Logitech has already released a keyboard for the job: the Logitech PRO keyboard/case.

At $130 (plus the $750-850 for the tablet), however, you have to ask yourself at what point you stop wanting a tablet and start wanting a laptop or some sort of hybrid/convertible device.

Samsung's newest mid-size tablet is probably about to get more appealing for the tinkerers out there. TeamWin has announced official TWRP support for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. The popular custom recovery can be downloaded from the official directory in several forms right this minute.

Samsung just took a load of code and dumped it on the company's open source repository this afternoon, a la the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 in both Wi-Fi and LTE trims. There are a total of 5 kernel source files here, 2 for North American Wi-Fi variants (SM-T320_NA), 2 for global Wi-Fi variants (SM-T320), and one for the global LTE variant (SM-T325).

This follows the release of kernel source code for both the Tab Pro 10.1 and Note Pro 12.2 a month ago.

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.

Samsung's advertising has been somewhat hit or miss lately, ranging from pretty decent scifi ads for the Galaxy Gear to cringe-worthy infomercials for the same product. But it looks like there's been something of a shift in the company's promotional direction, or at least in the way that it responds to Apple's sometimes hyperbolic TV ads. Check out this new one-minute spot for the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1.

The ad plays up the TabPRO's high-resolution screen with a better aspect ratio for movies versus the iPad Air, plus its ability to fit multiple apps on the screen at once, which has been a staple of TouchWiz for a while.

Update #1: The 16GB Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 is scheduled to go live today also, but it doesn't seem to have trickled out to most retailers just yet. Best Buy currently has the smallest tablet in the PRO series available for $399.99 online, but only in white.

Update #2: Alas, here is the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 in black.

Samsung's new Galaxy NotePRO tablets combine massive size with massive price, but that doesn't mean there isn't someone with fat hands and a matching wallet just waiting to give them a go.

Compared to 7 or 8 inches, 10 may seem like a lot to work with. But you know what? Boom, here's 12. These extra 2 inches come to us courtesy of Samsung. The company unveiled the new Galaxy Pro series at this year's CES, and the devices have gradually percolated to consumers throughout the world since. Today Samsung has shared pricing and availability information for Canada. The Galaxy PRO devices will roll out to various retailers starting now until the end of March.

You can't just run down to the corner (or Amazon) and pick up one of Samsung's new Pro tablets, but the source code is already posted for a number of these devices. Samsung's open source site now lists KitKat downloads for two versions of the TabPRO 10.1 (its first appearance), as well as some new variants of the NotePro 12.2.

As you may well know by now, Samsung launched a whole bunch o' tablets at CES this week, and by a bunch, I mean 4. The new Tab Pro 8.5, 10.1, and 12.2, and the new Note Pro 12.2. Four tablets, three sizes, two processors (Exynos 5 Octa or Snapdragon 800), and one screen resolution (2560x1600).

These are the first high-end tablets Samsung has produced for a couple of years (aside from the Nexus 10, of course), and it seems like after two budget-minded generations of Galaxy Tabs, they're finally ready to give the more expensive end of the market a try again.
