The Samsung Galaxy Note has been making headway for the Korean electronics giant since it’s first release with a 5.3-inch dimension, which is larger than most smartphones in the current market. Advertising efforts has also been focused on it’s ability to allow for quick document edits, through the use of a stylus that comes with the “phone tablet”.
Samsung is now back with a more powerful instalment of the Note, in he form of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung has promised to have the stylus-equipped Android tablet on store shelves “globally” by the end of this month.
In fact, the Note 10.1 is essentially the same device as the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, except for a spec bump and the addition of Samsung software that allows you to put the S Pen to task scribbling out quick annotations, taking screenshots, and editing photos, among other things.
The tablet comes with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) installed, though Samsung’s TouchWiz interface is layered on top as usual. For those who are used to Samsung’s blend of colorful icons and proprietary apps, the Galaxy Note 10.1 will seem very familiar.
Equipped with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, the Note 10.1 offers a fine spec upgrade over Samsung’s previous 10-inch tablet efforts, while also expanding the Note lineup.
In terms of connectivity, the initial release will only be in WiFi and 3G varieties, with an LTE version only coming later in the year.
