Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 launching across the globe this month
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 quietly appeared up for pre-order on US retailer Negri Electronics, suddenly resurrected after nearly five months since it was unveiled at MWC in February. And now, Samsung has finally confirmed that the Note 10.1, a tablet with stylus support built deep into the system, will roll out globally this month. 

Meanwhile, all the rumors we’ve heard about the device getting bumped up to a quad-core processor turned out true and below you can find the full spec sheet. The highlights include a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. But the feature that will lure most people is probably the content creation experience - you can split the screen into two and multitask much more effectively. The built-in stylus is also great for sketching and note taking. 

'The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a product we are very excited about and will offer our customers a new way to use and experience a tablet device. As well as being able to consume content such as videos, photos, document and the Internet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also gives them the power to produce, create and customise that same content – something they won't get from any other product on the market,' Samsung said.

UPDATE: And the first preview of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is in. That was fast.

We are also hearing the price will be set at 479 euro (around $600) in Europe, but there devices usually cost more than in the United States. Our guess for the US price of the Note 10.1 would be $479. That's based on previous devices like the new iPad that costs 499 euro in Europe (equalling $617), but in the States it's much cheaper at $499. 

Below, you'd find a video demonstration of the interface and the specs. Pretty impressive for the most part, don’t you think?

Eh, Transformer Prime, Nexus 7, upcoming Sony Tablet are all cheaper than this with the most expensive of them costing 450$...they all have quad core processors and can use Stylus pens with over 60 apps available. Don't see the point spending 750$ on this to be honest

isn't something wrong here? i mean, 479 euro isn't equal to 479 usd :/

Yes, it's not, 479 euro is around $600. But that's not a mistake.

We've dared to make an educated guess here. The new iPad 16GB Wi-Fi-only costs around $499 in the US, but 499 euro in Europe. Going by the same logic, the price for the G Note 10.1 would also be 479 euro. So we are guessing rather than directly convert the price.

Also, devices in Europe usually cost more. Hope that makes it clear!

It usually cost more in Europe, but why is that? Converting the price is a too easy answer if you ask me...

Like I said 10.1" is a much better form factor for this note, far more useful too, I think note will be more popular if it had 7" and 10" and all this cool features

but I already see issues with the keyboard

i would buy Asus Transformer Infinity instead of this
why ?
Better screen , better design , higher cpu clock speed , less invasive ui
But i think i will get the 3g version which comes with snapdragon s4
