While in the States, prices for the Note 10.1 start from $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only version, in the UK the price for the 10.1-inch S Pen-equipped tablet start from £399.99 (around $630). There is also a 3G version, retailing for $100 more if you’re in the States and £100 more if you’re in the UK. It would also take and make calls, which you can thankfully have on the microsoft-laden S Pen.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 might interest you with its built-in stylus and multitasking capabilities, but its no match for the iPad’s amazing Retina display and graphical performance.
