Back in February Samsung showed off the Galaxy Note 10.1 at Mobile World Congress. But after the announcement the tablet was nowhere to be found and Samsung delayed the release. This may have been a good decision to hold off and upgrade both the hardware and software.
Samsung has upgraded the processor to a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4410 CPU with 2GB of RAM. The camera has been updated with a 1.9-megapixel front-facing and a 5-megapixel back camera. The body also includes a built-in slot for the stylus in which the back of the stylus can be used as an eraser. But what’s most impressive is the note taking, photo editing, and multi-tasking. In a first for Android, apps can be run side-by-side in a true multi-tasking mode. There are also plenty of pre-loaded app to take advantage of the stylus like Adobe Photoshop Touch and more. Looks like a great productivity tablet with all the usual Android games for fun. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on this tablet.
