Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 and then immediately released it for sale. The Note 10.1 is the full tablet counterpart to the Galaxy Note that will also boast the S-Pen.
They’re releasing two models. $500 will get you the 16BG model and $550 will get you a 32GB model which could make the 32GB models more hard to find. The tables have a quad-core Exynos that Samsung says will give the tablets better battery life and process tasks faster. The unit is shipping with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) but it will be upgraded to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
With the inclusion of the S-pen, users can write on on the screen. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will read how much pressure is being applied while writing with the S-Pen. The Note 10.1 has over 1,000 levels of sensitivity. Another big feature is called Multiscreen. It will allow you to open up one of a couple apps while having, lets say, a movie playing. The movie will continue to play without stopping and you’d be able to interact with the second app that is running.
There’s a 5MP camera os the rear and a 1.9MP on the front. There’s a microSD card slot for expansion and comes in two colors, grey and white. The tablet will come preloaded with the Samsung suite of apps as well as others to users started. The company is selling then through Amazon, Office Depot, Best Buy, HH Gregg and Tiger Direct.
