Samsung has announced that its top-end Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro are ready for pre-order in the U.S. and will become available on Feb. 13.

More specifically, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Tab Pro 10.1 and 8.4 will go up for pre-order and launch on Feb. 13, with the 12.2 Tab Pro model set to arrive in March.

Pre-orders for the premium tablets start at midnight ET on Feb. 4 and will be available from Samsung's online store, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, PC Richard and Sons, Fry's, and Newegg. It's also worth noting that only the Wi-Fi models will go up for pre-order at this point. Verizon Wireless will be the first to offer the 4G LTE Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 "later this quarter."

"The Note Pro and Tab Pro create a more meaningful experience at the intersection of work and play," Nanda Ramachandran, vice president of emerging business at Samsung Telecommunications America, touted in the press release on Tuesday, Feb. 4. "With four completely revamped models featuring unique software innovations and impressive displays, these tablets offer users a premium Galaxy experience."

"The Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series deliver an unparalleled tablet experience," added Travis Merrill, vice president of tablet marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "As mobile usage habits have evolved, so have our tablet offerings. The Pro series is designed to meet the distinctive needs of today's mobile consumer, whether at home, on-the-go or at work."

Both the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series will be available in black or white color options. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 will cost a hefty $749.99 for the 32GB model and $849.99 for the 64GB version. The Tab Pro, meanwhile, will cost $399.99 for the 8.4-inch model with 16GB of storage, and $499.99 for the 10.1-inch version, also with 16GB storage capacity. The larger 12.2-inch 32GB Galaxy Tab Pro will go up to $649.99.

These price points put the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro at the very high end of the tablet market, on par with Apple's pricey iPad, but we already knew they would be steep. Top-end devices don't come cheap, and the latest Pro series tablets are Samsung's most advanced.
