As most of you are probably aware of, Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet during last month’s Mobile World Congress. The existence of the tablet version of the famous Samsung Galaxy Note has been rumored for quite some time and it felt good to finally witness the official introduction of the Note 10.1 Tablet. If you liked the original Samsung Galaxy Note then the Galaxy Note 10.1 should be right in your ballpark.
Personally, I think it’s mostly a Galaxy Tab 10.1 with an S-Pen thrown into the mix, but what do I know, right? So let us dive into the innards of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and look at the S-Pen, multiscreen format and the Ice Cream Sandwich experience on board.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The device houses a 1.4GHz dual-core processor along with 1GB of RAM. Storage is provided in 3 different capacities – 16GB, 32GB or 64GB.
Power wise, the Galaxy Note 10.1, hides a 7,000mAh battery and there are also variants with carrier connectivity. Otherwise, you can simply go for Wi-Fi only versions, but for the time there is no word on the availability or pricing for the Note 10.1 (even though word around the campfire is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet release date is scheduled for sometime during Q2).
The features include Adobe Photoshop Touch, Adobe Ideas and of course the S-Pen. The Ice Cream Sandwich build running on the Galaxy Note 10.1 has windowed (or multiscreen as Samsung calls it) operation. That means you can have several windows open to watch movies or check your mail all on the same display. This brings the overall experience a whole lot closer to what you would experience in a PC environment. Android 4 is showing its software muscles in this one folks.
Samsung also says that by bringing the S-Pen to the tablet, you can combine notes or sketches with images, web content or any form of digital media for that matter. There are also plenty of templates to play around with and geometric shapes drawn with the stylus can be transformed into their actual digital counterpart with the Shape Match function.
If you are interested in picking up the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, make sure to stay tuned as we’ll keep you posted.
Your thoughts on the tablet? Worth the money or is it simply a Galaxy Tab 10.1 with a stylus added (and of course ICS out of the box)? Drop us a line.
