Samsung has formally launched this Android 4.0 tablet. In fact, the company went as far as to release a video of it, one that we have embedded below for your convenience.
By our reckoning, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is superior to every other 10.1-inch offering from Samsung.
Some might balk at the display resolution for not being Retina-level, but 1,280 x 800 pixels (WXVGA) is just right for HD video playback.
Speaking of which, the quad-core 1.4 GHz SoC and the 2 GB of RAM (random access memory) can run HD videos just fine, as well as S Note, S Planner, Crayons Physics, Adobe Photoshop Touch, Polaris Office and other apps, in split-screen mode or otherwise.
In fact, Note 10.1 is particularly well suited to these programs, thanks to the S Pen, a capacitive stylus with an active Wacom digitizer. Long story short, S Pen is much more accurate than other styli, usable even for digital inking.
Not only that, but it is perfectly possible to program S Note or the other applications to automatically load when the S Pen is removed from its silo on the body of the tablet.
Samsung is allegedly already accepting orders for the Galaxy Note 10.1 in South Korea, Germany, UK and the US. Either that or it will begin to accept orders soon. TabletsMagazine.nl provided the following prices: €479 / $593 (Wi-Fi only) or €599 / $741 (HSPA+ version).
That said, the consumer electronic device possesses two cameras (5 MP at the back, 1.9 MP on the front), Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, MHL-HDMI output, an IR transmitter, 16 GB /32 GB/64 GB NAND Flash storage, GPS, a microSD card slot and a 7000mAh battery.
Finally, Samsung tossed in support for its Hub (Music, Game, Learning, Readers, Video, Media), Smart Stay and Pop Up Play.
