No. According to the spec sheet in that picture, it is still the 1.4 ghz quad-core A9 processor found in the S3, which is still a really good processor.

Samsung u should-ev made it 3GB ram, so when running
over 70 apps there will remain 2GB. 1GB for browsing,
opening 5 tabs and still remain 1GB where Android OS
ICS will take 550 MB of ram....... is it asking to much.

Why would you run 70 apps and a browser with 5 tabs at the same time?

Devices with just 1gb of RAM operate well (HTC one s and x, sgs3) why would 3gb be needed now?

If the Note has a telephone number (which should be part of a broadband data capability), SMS should be a no-brainer. Absent a dedicated phone number, maybe Sammy is going to do something along the lines of iMessage.... Magic 8 Ball says stay tuned for more litigation between Apple and Sammy.

"...but it was pretty nice to see the 2GB of RAM listed on the box itself"

Funny you say that now since not long ago you were downplaying the need for more RAM.

On phones yes, but more RAM on a tablet always seemed more useful

True, more RAM on a tablet is more useful than on a phone.

But if we want to make sure that phones will get future OS updates and have true multitasking (see HTC One X) and be able to run future software, then 2GB's of RAM is important.

Wouldn't phones need more ram than tablets since most phones perform similar tasks as tablets on top of phone functionality and radio connectivity?

What this tablet should've been

1. 1920x1200 display to compete with TFormer-Infinity and iPad 3. Without this, it basically falls from high-end to mid-range, to bad it already has. With Gorilla Glass 2.

2. 2GB of RAM, multi-tasking is much more relevant on tablets.

3. Exynos 5250 Dual-Core clocked at 2GHz or more with Mali-600 (I think it is?) for improved GPU performance over Quad-Core Exynos 4412. It's a shame that tablets run the same processors as smart-phones as of now.

4. Beefier battery to accommodate screen.

Seeing how well the GS3 has been selling recently, I'm sure Sammy could fit this into the 500$ price, ASUS almost matched these specs, opting for a faster Tegra 3 and less RAM, at 500$.
Seems like Sammy has been slacking off in the tablet industry as of late, allowing Amazon, ASUS and Apple to get the upper hand.

Does it have JB on board? I think from now on JB is a must for high end Androids.

I'm not that into tablets, but the recent ones are starting to look appealing. If i do get a tablet, it will either be this, the Huawei Mediapad FHD, or the rumored Nexus 10. Or maybe the new rumored HTC tablet.

It´s really brilliant!Samsung is really very innovative.Although Samsung’s popularity has largely stemmed on its hardware development, Samsung’s software engineers are busy thinking of innovative new ways to make their top notch hardware more human friendly.The latest bit of ingenuity comes in the form of Samsung’s SmartStay technology which cleverly prevents the display from timing out by detecting if the user is looking at the screenLike face detection software in cameras, SmartStay uses the front-facing camera to check in on your mug to make sure its still looking at the phone.Now you can get this feature even if you don’t have the Galaxy S III.
