Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition to have its U.K. release date next week

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition to have its U.K. release date next week
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition is quite a tablet. We've already seen this beast launch in the U.S. with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a pixel density right at the 300ppi mark. Not only is 300 a perfect game for a bowler, but as far as tablets go, it is the highest pixel density of all tablets in this class for 2013. Powered by the Samsung Exynos 5420 octa-core processor and offering 3GB of RAM, this is not a slate for the meek.

What brings our thoughts to the device is not the S Pen capabilities (although it easily could have been), but actually is a picture of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition relaxing at a Currys/PC World display in the U.K. Even though the tablet is out on the floor for customers to poke and prod (more prodding than poking, we'd imagine), it won't be be sold until next week. That's the way to get those drool ducts functioning. The store is asking £499.99 ($808 USD) for the 16GB storage variant with Wi-Fi connectivity. For its part, U.K. retailer Clove has the tablet priced at £479.99 ($776 USD).

Eagle-eyed readers might notice that the display lists the tablet as having a quad-core processor, but as we mentioned before, the octa-core Samsung Exynos 5240 is under the hood. We could argue all day whether or not this is really an octa-core processor, but until Samsung starts adding the Heterogeneous Multi-Processing solution which allows all eight cores to be active simultaneously, the processor is still hindered by the big.LITTLE architecture.

While not launching in the U.K. until next week, here is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition on display at a U.K. retailer

Samsung please get rid of those ugly physical buttons. And stop it with the silver plastic trim. Only then will I start taking your designs seriously.

You don't even like Samsung products, so why are you complaining?

I think what he is trying to say here is; The guy hates Samsung (not only 'Samsung products') and is typical jealous fanboy, look at his comment #4 below. If only the finishing and button was stopping him from buying this he wouldn't said anything about its UI being laggy. He wouldn't be even first to post the comment on this article if that was the case. He clearly is just trying to appear like consumer when he just a troll. IMO

Just bought my note 3 never a sammy fan but my mate convinced me to buy one so I did and with all that mouth watery specs it still lags, so I called jbhifi and they said if u don't like it send it in and choose another product so I chose another HTC one in black. Never Sammy again

You must of gotten a defective one, the note 3 I used was flawless in terms of not lagging.

Yeah and it's really important to remove most of the useless Samsung widgets. My friend bought a Note 2 that was quite laggy at first, but after removing a few homescreens and widgets it was buttery smooth.

WHAT? My Note 2 was never laggy when I first bought it. I had like 5 screens full of widgets and apps, but it was smooth. And I came from windows phone, so believe me, I know what I'm talking about. But it does become a little rough when the memories( sdcard included) are full and you have lots of demanding apps running in the background, but this happens to all phones...

Or you never even bought one, just trying to promote HTC. Just saying.

But still with all that high end specs should give no reason to lagg, if ur saying that turn off the features the make the galaxy s and note series 'truley smart' then I have the right to say they are lazy at optimizing the software and liars.

yea, they're just lazy with touchwiz. touchwiz is the thing making all of their phones lag, even the ones with top-end specs. it's sad really.

Again with all these stupid laggs complains. Its smartphone/tablets devcies and who dies cause it micro lagg for millisec. Its not peoples buying it to scroll around at homescreen all day and see if it laggs or not. Have both Note 1/2, with Note 1 it do laggs a bit, but I dont care of thes micro laggs and Im not looking for it either. I bought it to use it and not for to compare with others if it laggs or not. TW is good to with all features, if peoples dont like it, just root and flash vanilla if they want. Customs ROMs are missing all the features that need TW to run and I prefer TW instead custom ROMs. CyanogenMod, AOKP, Paranoid is boring to use and always end up coming back to TW.

Very True. Just use the damn thing. Android is not the smoothest operating system, but it is the most feature rich and has tons of customization options. Each OS is give and take and it all comes down to personal preference. To make things easier, both IOS and Android have huge development communities that can enhance the user experience greatly. Android, even with CRAZY processing power, will have micro lag and transitions that aren't as fast as Windows and IOS. Kit-Kat will address that but Android has ALWAYS had unpredictable UI Lag. The 2014 Edition is no different. Sure, there is a little lag here and there, but the device is by no means "slow". It's an amazing device.

I hope this tablet does fairly well. Not because I want one or want Samsung to do well, I just hope its success might lead Wacom to make their Cintiq drawing tablets and Android/W8 tablets cheaper. It just seems crazy you can get good tablets now for $499 but a Wacom drawing tablet (with screen) is still at least $999.
