Whereas the original Galaxy Note sat somewhere between a tablet and a smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a full-blown Android tablet. The device was first announced back at the Mobile World Congress in February and new rumors suggest Samsung have now improved its specification further. Apparently, Samsung has redesigned the original specs for the Galaxy Note 10.1 and have emerged with Stylus Pen aka S-Pen support and a new quad core processor instead of the revamped dual core we imagined.
It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that Samsung made a key change to a tablet just prior to its release. It has now been confirmed that the device will actually have a quad-core Exynos 4412 CPU. Whether it’s the same 1.4GHz Exynos chip featured within the Samsung Galaxy S3 remains to be seen. To allow the Note 10.1 to accommodate the S-Pen, Samsung had to slim down the stylus, but, the manufacturer will be offering a “holder kit” to bring the pen up to a more sensible size.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has a 10.1 inch WXGA touch-screen (1280*800 pixels) and comes with Samsung’s S-Pen interface. The S-Pen interface is a unique and efficient tool that enables you to combine notes and sketches into other content. For example, students could download lecture notes and annotate over them on their Note 10.1 while in lectures.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 also comes with Adobe Photoshop Touch, which enables you to edit all your images on the move. It also comes with Adobe Ideas which is a drawing tool !
Samsung had to slim down the stylus to make it fit, but for those of you who had been looking forward to a sufficiently large S-Pen, you won’t be disappointed thanks to the S-Pen holder kits.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 also has a 3 mega-pixel and a front-facing 2 mega-pixel camera for video calling. It’ll be available in both WiFi and 3G versions, which is pretty standard on modern tablets.
Android Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-loaded on the Galaxy Note 10.1 which is powered by a quad-core Exynos 4412 CPU, has 1GB of RAM and will be available in a choice of either 16, 32 or 64GB of on-board internal memory.
Samsung didn’t give a release date of price for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 , but as soon as we get one we’ll let you know.
