UPDATE: Samsung finally patches Galaxy Note Pro 12.2; users rejoice

You may have recalled my article three weeks ago about Samsung’s update for the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 that broke all competitor’s Bluetooth keyboard functionality with the niche tablet. Finally, as of earlier last week, Samsung rolled out a patch that fixes the dreaded Bluetooth bug that has locked out many keyboards from working with the over sized tablet, most notably the $120 Logitech Keyboard Pro Case made specifically for this product.

The update rolled out about 5 days ago and the only details about the patch released were that it fixed the Bluetooth keyboard connectivity problems and fixed some other bugs. After testing it out for an afternoon, I must admit the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is running much smoother after the update. What a shame that Samsung took about 6 weeks to fix this problem and did not communicate at all during the process with end-users who rely on this business orientated tablet for productivity in the work place.

You can grab the newly updated and almost bug-free super-sized tablet on Amazon for $649.99.

    I have a Tab Pro 12″ Tablet (Not the Note Pro) and that hasn’t seen an update since the day I got it. Its still on Kit Kat. For the price and the fact its not that old you would think it should be on Lollipop by now. Samsung have been good updating the phone I have had but the tablets I have seem to miss out on the big updates. Even the Note 3 Phone is on Lollipop now and that’s older.

      The Tab Pro 12″ has not gotten an update? And to think I was upset because of my keyboard….. wow. I feel for you!

        Funny because the Note Pro got lots of updates!

          The Tab Pro is on the list of Q3 2015 updates. I checked here for the news on updates samsung.youmobile.org

    David, you said there was a patch for Note Pro 12.2, was this for the carrier based version, (ATT, Verizon etc) or also for the WIFI version SM-P900. Do you know how the patch can be downloaded, it hasn’t done it automatically. Sorry about long time since your article, but I got this tablet for Christmas 2015 and have been going in circles with Samsung who for the most part deny there ever was a problem
