Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet less than a week ago, and now we get to see a certain special feature it possesses.
We are referring to the “multi-screen” capability, as the company reportedly
calls it. Long story short, it lets two apps open at the same time and share the screen.
Normally, multitasking on Android means that, although more than one app can indeed be run at once, users can operate only one window at a time.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 is unique in that it opens two apps side by side, each taking half the screen.
There is a catch though: only the apps adapted to split-screen use can be utilized in this manner, and they aren't many.
Still, at least the basics are covered. The list includes Polaris Office, S-Note, the web browser and the apps for e-mail, photo viewing and video playback.
