Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 to be introduced in the Big Apple on Wednesday?
Samsung has sent out invites to a location in the Big Apple (of course!) where it is expected to introduce a new product. The drawing on the invitation shows what looks to be a generic tablet with the words "Meet the new way" written inside the drawing using a stylized font. With the Samsung GALAXY Note II expected to reveal itself on August 29th, before IFA in Berlin, tomorrow's event could be to welcome another new member of the Samsung GALAXY Note line to the lineup.

On Monday, Samsung launched the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablet in the U.K., at its retail location in the Westfield Stratford shopping center which would point to the U.S. introduction of the device on Wednesday. And if that isn't enough of a clue for you budding Detectives, earlier this month the manufacturer said it would be launching the device globally during August. Actually, late last month, there was speculation that August 15th could bring an introduction of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1.

The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is equipped with a 10.1 inch Super PLS LCD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and a surprisingly low pixel density of 149ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos processor (the Exynos 4412 if you must know). 2GB of RAM is on board along with 64GB of native storage which can be enhanced by using the 32GB capacity microSD slot. On back is a 5MP camera with LED flash and AF which can capture video in 720p. A 7000mAh battery should have no problem keeping the lights on, and the tablet supports Samsung's reportedly improved S-Pen. The Korean tech titan even throws in Adobe's Photoshop Touch app for your doodling pleasure, and Android 4.0 is installed out of the box.

The festivities begin at 11am EDT Wednesday.

other than the pixel density, that thing is a purebred beast. Seriously.. whats with the pixel density? Hopefully that is just a pre launch misdirection to give us a happy surprise at the unveiling.

have you tried using a low end device with below 180ppi? If yes then you must be pissed of with the resolution. That's why.

I think I read somewhere that the Exynos quad didn't support that high of a resolution? I could be mistaken though.

your very mistaken. The SGS3 has double the resolution of this tablet. The exynos quad can handle 1080p and higher.

What are you talking about? The S3 runs at 1280x720 and this is running at 1280x800. How is a lower resolution 'double the resolution'?

Not likely a misdirection seeing as some reviewers already have the product.

I prefer a 7-inch tablet, quad-core - even the Nexus 7 has better pixel density - seems kind of weird at 149.

It would be damn surprising, given that it's out in the UK and has been reviewed already... http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/3002/samsung-galaxy-note-101-review-high-end-tablet-but-lacking-in-resolution

I’m excited to see what Samsung reveals tomorrow. I hope that they release the Note 10.1. I have an AT&T Note and I love everything about it. My Note uses AT&T’s LTE network, and both the phone and the network go hand in hand. I will probably wait for that version of the Note 10.1 to come out. Many of my Dish coworkers have a Galaxy of some sort and love them. I really like streaming live and recorded TV to my phone through the Sling Adapter that I have connected to my Hopper at home. With the Dish Remote Access app on my Galaxy Tab and LTE network, streaming comes in clear and quick. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long for it to get here!

149 ppi is a deal breaker for me.
