Samsung announced on Thursday that it has launched some new content for those U.K. purchasers of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablet. This content is in the form of apps that take advantage of the S-Pen technology on the device. There is a total of nine new apps that include a variety of games such as Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (an exclusive to the model), and Drop The Beat to name just a few. Some of these games are free for a limited time only, so if you want them without dipping into your wallet or purse, you should think about installing them soon. 250,000 downloads of the Sonic game are being made available for free and 100,000 downloads of Need for Speed are being offered. You can find these titles and the other free games by clicking on the Samsung apps icon on your tablet.
Samsung is offering free S-Pen related apps to U.K. buyers of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1
The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is more than just a game playing device which is why Samsung has added other free content such as an exclusive Android version of WIRED magazine. The WIRED Note Edition is free to buyers of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 from the day they purchase the tablet until the January 2013 edition. This online version of the magazine offers exclusive content for your device and is designed to take advantage of the S-Pen's capabilities. This app can be found in the Google Play Store under WIRED Note Edition.
A pair of new apps is available for owners of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 to download straight from the sourcelink. The Official TOP 40 Chart not only sends you a list of which U.K. tunes are charting, you actually receive the tunes to listen to on your tablet automatically downloaded every week. Samsung is offering an 8 week free trial. Also available for free from the sourcelink is the Easy Phone Sync which lets you copy music and your contacts list to your tablet from a phone, even if it is from another manufacturer.
While this promotion is limited to U.K. owners of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Korean manufacturer do a little tweaking and offer it in the States.
