Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 might become a different tablet from what we saw at MWC
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched at MWC and while it offers S Pen input much like an oversized Galaxy Note phone, it failed to impress much and it pales in comparison to the high-res new iPad. Samsung seems to have noticed that the Note 10.1 might not be the most competitive tablet it’s released, and now confirmed that it has no release date for the device yet, and the actual specs might change.

The Korean company also warned that what we saw back in February, might turn out to have little in common with the actual product when it gets released.

Back then, the Note 10.1 was announced with a 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos chip, a 1280 x 800-pixel display, and a 3-megapixel rear camera.

This situation starts to remind the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, which was initially announced as a thick, brick of a tablet, but Samsung took note after the iPad 2 launch and went back to the drawing board to slim it down and make it more attractive. For the Note, though, we’re not sure how the company will change, so stay tuned - there might be more to this than visible on the surface.

I do hope they update the specs to better compete with the upcoming tablets being released, but I also hope they keep the "Note" part. I think the stylus adds a uniqueness to the tablet and makes it stand out. Not to mention you would be getting the business/student crowd that want to use that stylus for taking notes or editing documents.

I just got the Note. So far I love it. I just wish it was bigger and faster to better lend itself to drawing (whole reason I wanted it.) I can't wait to replace my sketchbook with a tablet. So stoked about this, regardless of how many changes it goes through.

hell yeaaah!!!! I'm expecting Quad-Core and 2560x1600 pixel resolution but I'm afraid that it will have no protection (corning gorilla glass 2) like Motorola and Asus :'X

Probably Quad-Core and 2560x1600 pixel resolution, but sadly in Pentile based LCD it's demonstrated at FPD International Expo last year. ;-) 8-(

They're have already been other articles saying it will have an Exynos quad core and for that reason it was pushed back till June. If they are changing anything else that's new to me.

Unfortunately for you since they made apples screen and parts of the processor, you cant really say they copied apple as much as that they copied themselves.

I wish it was Samsung listening to my previous comments about them being not competitive to Apple. The Galaxy Tab that we want: 2Ghz ARM15 Exynos Processor w/ 11.6" 2560 x 1440 Display Remember this? Seems Legit.

See what I said. Check my comment in tab 7 article that Note 10.1 will have a quad core 4412 SoC.
