We first saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
months ago which is a long time in the mobile device
industry, and in that half year the original Note 10.1
was beginning to look a bit less impressive compared
to the competition.
So for those people who have been waiting
a long time for the Galaxy Note 10.1, there are a couple
of bits of good news: firstly the tablet will start
to ship this month, and secondly Samsung have given
the specification a boost since they announced it.
Just in case you have forgotten about
the Galaxy Note 10.1, this is an Android 4.0 tablet
with a 10.1" 1280 x 800 pixel display that comes
in WiFi-only or 3G versions. Unlike most other
tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a stylus (called
the "S Pen") which makes it possible to have a
more precise experience than you would have with a tablet
that you just prodded with your finger.
Quite a few things have changed however..
the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 now sports a quad-core
1.4GHz processor instead of a dual-core one, the internal
RAM has been doubled to 2GB from 1GB, the primary camera
is now 5 megapixels instead of 3 megapixels and the
front camera is now 1.9 megapixels instead of 0.3. The
overall design has been tweaked cosmetically (making
it marginally larger and heavier), and the Galaxy Note
10.1 will now be available in white as well as black.
