Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 announced
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is one of the tablets that intend to push Apple’s iPad to the very brink, but then again, you can say that Samsung is not too successful in this matter as the iPad is nigh untouchable where tablet sales figures are concerned, just like how the iPod decimated all the other portable media players out there in the market previously no matter what the competitor did. The thing is, hardware is not the entire equation, there needs to be decent software and enough killer apps in the ecosystem to keep a particular device going strong, not to mention having a fantastic ‘cool’ image to go along with it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 certainly has its fair share of ‘coolness’ by virtue of it being an Android-powered tablet, and hopefully it will be able to provide an even better competition to the iPad compared to its brethren. This extension of the Galaxy Note category will come outfitted with the functionality and precision of a pen and paper on a 10.1-inch large display, opening up the door to potentially endless possibilities while elevating your creativity, productivity and learning abilities.
It will boast of an intuitive user experience and thanks to its 1.4GHz quad-core processor which can be found on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as well, in addition to 2GB of RAM for enhanced performance, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will certainly not come up wanting on the hardware front. Some of the key intuitive features and capabilities incorporated into the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 include side-by-side multitasking, where Samsung’s unique ‘S Pen’ experiences will include a range of ‘S Note templates’ and productive tools, ranging from Shape Match and Formula Match to Learning Hub for accessing educational curricula (Learning Hub is currently available in Korea, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, China and Singapore, and will gradually roll-out to other global markets) and Adobe’s premium creative application Photoshop Touch.
It also boasts of a Multiscreen feature that lets you effortlessly utilize a couple of different applications side-by-side simultaneously, paving the way for true and easy multitasking. You are able to check out Web pages or videos, or even launch other applications when you are writing the next novel or sketching ideas with the S Pen. Feel free to capture and crop images, and paste them onto the other screen in order to churn out your very own personal notes, now how about that?
There is a 5-megapixel camera at the back alongside a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and self-portrait purposes. Three models are available – a WiFi-only version, a WiFi-and-3G HSPA-Plus connectivity version at launch, and a WiFi-and-LTE version that will be rolling out later this year.
