Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is finally official: S Pen supporting tablet
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has just been officially confirmed and it’s as real as you imagined it - a 10.1-inch tablet with a dual-core processor and support for the S Pen. The S Pen support is actually what defines and will define the Galaxy Note series for Samsung. At the same time, Samsung will keep the Tab lineup for traditional no-stylus tablets.

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 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 isn’t very exciting in terms of hardware, though - it features a 10.1” display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a 1.4GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos chip, a 3-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front shooter. Connectivity is covered with HSPA+ at 21Mbps, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

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.

Overall, this is a device that will appeal to artists and those who value the pen input. It looks like a supersized Galaxy Note and that’s a great thing for drawing. We’ve already gotten our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, so hop over there to learn about our first impressions.

With this tablet, I wonder what is samsung's point of releasing "Galaxy Tab 2". At the same time, too.

Talk about Completely Underwhelming! I expected a much higher resolution screen and LTE, and frankly quad core would be nice. Agree with other poster why put out both the galaxy 2 and note? Other than a stylus who cares! Should have made the G2 at least a major upgrade. Major Disappointment Sammy!!!!!

this isnt their flagship tablet for the year. They will announce that at the samsung press confrence later, probably right before they announce the SGS3. Hold your horses. This is for business/art use, not for mad spec hunter use. Besides, its still an exynos which is still the best chip on the market hands down. Id take one. It sure as heck would make doodling in class on my tablet a lot nicer when i dont feel like paying attention. :)
