Samsung's (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) strategy in the mobile market is to try just about every variation on a theme to see what works and what doesn't. With rumors that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is planning a 12.9-inch iPad (which some refer to as the iPad Pro), it seems that Samsung is out to crash Apple's party by being first to the scene with a gigantic tablet.
That said, with the first sites taking pre-orders, it looks as though these larger tablets from Samsung aren't going to come cheap. The first Samsung 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro devices are selling for north of $1,000 for pre-orders, pushing into Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Surface Pro territory. Will this succeed, or is Samsung simply aiming too high?
