Samsung launches quad-core Galaxy Note 10.1, available this month

By on August 6, 2012, 11:00 AM

Samsung has released the Galaxy Note 10.1 after first showcasing the device at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. Not to be confused with the smartphone that shares a similar name, the Note 10.1 is 100 percent tablet although the Korean giant is quick to point out that this isn’t a replacement for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Instead, the Note 10.1 will be sold alongside the Tab 10.1, further bolstering Samsung’s tablet offering.

The Note 10.1 ships with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and storage options of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB. There’s also a microSD slot that accepts cards with a maximum capacity of 64GB. The tablet will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed from the factory. Early models will be available as Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi + 3G. Samsung notes that a 4G LTE version won’t be available until later this year, perhaps in time for the holiday buying season.

As the name hints at, the Note 10.1 features a 10.1-inch WXGA (1,280 x 800) LCD display with a digitizer to accept input from the included S Pen. This is the same stylus that ships with the Galaxy Note smartphone which facilitates note-taking and other business-oriented tasks.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available this month in Korea, Germany, the US and the UK followed by a gradual rollout to other markets in the near future. Pricing remains unknown at this hour, however.

They'll just say they got the white idea from the white iPhone. I bet they start patenting colors next.

No Apple will sue because it is a moble device with a touch screen interface.
