The Samsung Galaxy Note was one of the surprise hits of 2011 and it came as no surprise when Samsung dediced to extend the range with the announcement of the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Whereas the original Galaxy Note sat somewhere between a tablet and a smartphone, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a full-blown Android tablet. The device was first announced back at the Mobile World Congress in February and new rumours suggest Samsung have now improved its specification further.
Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will now have a quad-core processor rather than the dual-core one reported in the original announcement. This should ensure the tablet is future-proof and will improve gaming performance, as well as enabling amazing multi-tasking.
We assume the tablet will still come with the same 10.1 inch touch-screen running at 1280*800 pixels, 1GB of RAM, 3 mega-pixel camera and will be available in a choice of 16, 32 or 64GB of on-board memory. As you'd expect the Note 10.1 runs on Android Gingerbread ensuring it gets all the latest tablet software.
Another new improvement is that Samsung have re-designed the S-Pen stylus so that it is now thinner. However, even better news is that Samsung have included a slot in the Galaxy Note 10.1 for holding the S-Pen , which was a common complaint aimed at the original Galaxy Note.
3G has a good feeling about the Galaxy Note 10.1 and will keep you up to date with all the latest information, including a UK launch date, when it becomes available.
