Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet Arrives This Month
August 7, 2012 09:45 am
On Monday, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will launch sometime in August, and will be a full-fledged tablet. 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.
As our U.K. colleagues saw back in February, the Note 10.1 even looks mostly the same as the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Both devices feature 1,280×800 displays and run on Google’s Android 4.0 operating system. On the inside, the Note 10.1 will feature Samsung’s 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, a jump from the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1′s 1GHz dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM.
While Samsung did say on Monday that the Note 10.1 will hit
U.S. retailers in August, company officials did not offer up an exact launch
date. We asked if the August 15 Galaxy Note event in New York will focus on the
Note 10.1 or a new Note phone as has been rumored, but Samsung officials
declined to comment. (WIRED)
