Original story ...

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 will launch February 13, on the eve of Valentine's Day, for $850, retailer Office Depot has trumpeted.

Would-be lovers who pick one up for their sweeties with less than 24 hours to go until the big day will be cutting it a little close, but at least they'll have the option.

The large S Pen-equipped Samsung tablet launches February 4 for our friends in the UK, but it's taken until now for the its US release date and pricing to be revealed.

You can pre-order the 64GB Wi-Fi model at Office Depot currently.

It's all in the S Pen

Cupid's arrow sunk deep into our flesh when we tried out the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 at CES 2014, and our reviewer said it "feels like a true laptop replacement."

It comes packing a 12.2-inch 2560 x 1600 display, Android 4.4 KitKat, 3GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 9,500mAh battery, microSD card storage, and a range of other specs depending on what model you pick up.

For it's part, the 64GB Wi-Fi version has an Exynos 5 Octa chip with a combined 1.9GHz and 1.3GHz.

Most important, though, is the tablet's S Pen stylus, which sets it apart from other large Samsung Galaxy tablets and makes for very fluid use.
