One of the things that helped drive down the price of Android tablets is the proliferation of smaller size displays in the 7-inch range. This is partially what allowed companies like Amazon and Google to undercut the competition at a time when the market was flooded with 10-inch tablets for $500 and up. This correlation in price also works in reverse, as evidenced by Samsung's 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro commanding $850 at Office Depot.

Office Depot is currently offering the big size slate for pre-order on its website ; it's due to be released on February 13, 2014, a day before Valentine's Day, in case you're looking for gift ideas that fall out of the realm of chocolate and flowers and teddy bears.

The 12.2-inch display sports a 2560x1600 resolution. Other specs include a quad-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, USB 3.0 port, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, 9,500mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
