The Galaxy Note 10.1 features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with the TouchWiz skin on top. It also comes with a number of tweaks for the Wacom-based S Pen - you can sketch in a dedicated app which is brought by a double tap on the screen while holding the pen button, you can annotate screenshots and you have Adobe Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas pre-loaded. The two applications are tailor-made for the S Pen with pressure sensitivity.
The Note’s supports microSD cards of up to 32GB, which can be added on top of the 16, 32 or 64GB of internal memory depending on the version.
