The Galaxy Note 10.1 is known for being a very capable tablet. Earlier versions of tablets were for content consumption e.g. watching videos, reading eBooks, magazines, gaming and general web browsing. While tablets are not yet at the level of traditional computing machines like the PC (in whichever form: ultrabook, desktop, laptop), they are increasingly becoming more capable to the point of being used not only for content consumption but also for content creation. That is where the Galaxy Note 10.1 comes in. I am not sure how successful the 2012 edition was but it did start something. The 2014 edition is here to continue that mission.
Here are the specs of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition:
- Has a 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 X 1600) Super clear LCD (like the Nexus 10)
- It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- 8 megapixel main camera with an LED Flash backed by a 2 megapixel front camera (both have BSI sensors and zero shutter lag).
- 8,220mAh battery
- Exynos 5 octa-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz for the version of the tablet with 3G network support and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz for the LTE variant.
- 3 GB RAM
- Internal storage will be 16, 32 or 64 GB depending on the tablet you decide to purchase. There will be expandable storage too via microSD card.
- S-Pen with all the S-Pen compatible features as found on the Galaxy Note 3
- All the usual S-something apps and other add-ons as found on the Galaxy Note 3
- Samsung Knox security feature also available.
The Note 10.1 will be available in three connectivity options: WiFi Only, WiFi and 3G, WiFi and LTE, available in 16/32/64GB. It will come in two color options, Jet Black and Classic White and will be available from Q3. There is no specific date as is the case with the Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear.
