After many false starts (more than the London Olympics by the way) and lots of changes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is finally here! The launch, which has been eagerly awaited, seems like it has lasted forever since its announcement was made 6 months back finally, occurred a few days ago, with the official full specifications being made public and the release date set for some time this month.
So, ready to see what kind of features Samsung has unleashed upon the world?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 may have taken some time to be finally revealed, but it certainly does not disappoint! There are three versions of the device, all with varying Wi-Fi capabilities, although you will only find two coming out into the market first, the third one will be available very soon.
The Note 10.1 features an Exynos quad core CPU that is the same as the one in the Galaxy S3, clocking at 1.4GHz. It runs on the Android OS and boasts of a 2GB RAM. The Note’s stylus has generated a lot of buzz as it promises to make the tablet a one of a kind capable digitizer.
The screen resolution might not have improved much from earlier versions at 800p, but it is still something to look out for. The Exynos 5 should offer greater resolutions. Meanwhile, Samsung is not stingy at all when it came to other interesting features to make the tablet the best there is. The touch screen capabilities of the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet are more advanced, allowing the device to detect multiple touch points. It even allows for the screen to be divided into two and different apps to be run on it simultaneously, very cool!
The tablet boasts of a symbol recognition feature too. Draw your little rough sketch there and the device should be able to figure out what it is and come up with a more defined, professional picture. It also has a resizable keyboard, which can be dragged about, and of course, it would not be a tablet if it did not have the Swype (predictive text input) capabilities.
It might be a little heavier than your ordinary tablet and this is mainly because of its large battery, 7000mAh. It is however much lighter than the lightest iPad in the market so it is not too bad. While the pricing is yet to be confirmed, it will most likely not be as high as the $750 being charged by Negri Electronics, the online retailer. Rumor has it that the price would probably be set at around $453, making it nice and affordable for everyone.
I’m certainly celebrating, who is joining me?
