Verizon quietly introduces LTE-enabled Galaxy NotePRO 12.2

It’s a tale of two tablets: one week ago, we saw a leak indicating that Verizon was planning on adding both the LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung’s Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 to its offerings today, on March 6. We had already gotten confirmation from Samsung that the carrier would introduce the tablet sometime this quarter, but there still wasn’t an official date. Then on Tuesday Verizon issued a statement which verified that the G Pad 8.3 would indeed go up for sale today – but there was no word about the NotePRO. Well, now that March 6 is upon us, not only has Verizon started sales of the LG tablet as planned, but the NotePRO 12.2 has spontaneously arrived to join it.

It seems a little odd to go to the trouble of formally announcing the much older G Pad 8.3 and not the brand new NotePRO, but we won’t let ourselves get too bogged down in the “why” of it all; what matters is that the tablet is here now.

Pricing is unsurprisingly on the high side of things, with the 32GB LTE NotePRO 12.2 going for $850 ($750 on-contract). That represents a $100 premium over the WiFi-only 32GB NotePRO 12.2.

Anybody thinking of snatching this guy up, or has Samsung managed to put together an unattractive combination of too big and too costly?
