Samsung Launching Galaxy Note 10.1 This Year

After a very long wait, you’ll be excited to know that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is finally ready to launch. The device was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona a couple of months ago. It was stated that it comes with a 1.4GHz quad core processor and is stocked with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It hasn’t been said if this device will see Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but with the hardware the Galaxy Note 10.1 is packed with, there’s no doubt that it could handle it.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a huge advancement from the original Samsung Galaxy Note also widely known as a “Phablet.”  As the name implies, the Galaxy Note 10.1 will have a 10.1 inch screen, 4.8 inches larger than the first Galaxy Note. For me personally, I feel that 10 inches is about the perfect size for a tablet, anything smaller just doesn’t feel right. Thus, I’ll be excited to see how the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 performs.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will come with Samsung’s S Pen stylus which allow users to “write” all over the screen (virtually, of course). The device will be coming with a Wi-Fi only model along with a version that is equipped with both Wi-Fi and 3G HSPA+. A Wi-Fi and LTE version with be launching later this year, we hope.

It’s very much worth nothing that the Galaxy Note 10.1 is not by any means a replacement for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Galaxy Note is a product that Samsung sells alongside its entire tablet lineup. The stylus is the most notable difference between the two devices in my opinion. I haven’t done a whole lot of research on how the stylus works myself, but other articles have had commenters saying that they could replace their Wacom tablets with this. I’d be very interested in finding out how that all works together.

After Samsung had unveiled the Galaxy Note 10.1 at the Mobile World Congress in February, they declined all requests on information when the tablet might launch. Last month, Samsung issued a Save the Date for an August 15th event.  Samsung said it was going to make “a major announcement and unveiling of the newest Galaxy device.” After the statement, speculation and rumors become rampant. Many say that it will be the Galaxy Note 2 while others say it’ll be the Galaxy Note 10.1. Whatever it is, it’s going to be big.

Currently, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is available in countries like the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and Korea. The company says it will begin releasing the tablet to other countries starting this month.

On the subject of the Galaxy Note 10.1, will you artists out there be replacing your Wacom or drawing tablet with the Galaxy Note 10.1? Many people said that you can do that, but I guess at this point it’ll just be rumors. What do you think? We’d love to hear your thought on the matter in the comments below!
