The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was a new product by Samsung that was first shown during the Mobile World Congress held last February. The Galaxy Note 10.1 was a mashup of a device – bringing together the Galaxy Tab with the S-Pen stylus that was one of the major innovations of the Galaxy Note.
Unfortunately, it did not get a lot of excited reception from the people who saw it, mainly because some of the specifications were a little suspect. First, it only has a relatively vanilla 1.4Ghz dual core processor and a 1280 x 800 pixel display resolution. These were specs that was unimpressive, to say the least and it became immediately unattractive when Apple release the New Ipad and its far superior hardware.
The rumor was that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be brought back to the drawing board to try and make it more of a crowd pleaser. Now Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 once again and it looks like its innards have indeed been improved. First off, it is now powered by an Exynos 4 Quad quad-core processor that runs at 1.4Ghz. It now also has a dedicated graphics chip – the Mali-400MP. IT also has 2GB of RAM.
The outside appearance of the Galaxy Note 10.1 also underwent a makeover, including the addition of a small slot for the S-Pen stylus. Other features include a 5 Megapixel camera that is capable of 1080p recording and a front 1.9 megapixel camera for video calling, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.
Expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to fetch around 479 Euros.
