Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-Inch Tablet Announced

| March 1, 2012 |

Samsung announced its Galaxy Note 10.1 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, although at the time of writing, release dates and pricing details were not available.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor that runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). It has 64 GB of internal storage and comes with a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

As the name suggests, this model has a 10.1-inch screen with HD (1280 x 800 pixel) display. It even comes bundled with Adobe’s Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas, so you can create layered images, sketch ideas and share them with colleagues or friends.

All told, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a pretty neat device. In terms of form factor, it’s actually lighter and slimmer than the Galaxy Tab.

Like the Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1 also offers the S Pen feature, using which you can write notes on pictures, directions on maps, add meetings to your calendar etc. But the S Pen is sold separately, for it has been redesigned and now even comes with a virtual eraser.

Another feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note is the likelihood  to endear itself to consumers is its split-screen capability. This allows you to split the screen into two parts; on one part, you could be watching a streaming video, while on the other, you could easily be reviewing a document or taking notes.

Samsung is looking to create an entirely new category or market segment: a device that is larger than the average mobile smartphone but smaller than a tablet device. Its positioning is to appeal to users who value productivity, creativity and learning.
