Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 suddenly up for pre-order, ships today

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 suddenly up for pre-order, ships today
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was announced back at MWC in February, but since then we haven’t heard much about the stylus-equipped tablet. Now, it’s suddenly up for pre-order at etailer Negri Electronics carrying a whopping price of $750, but also redone with new hardware. Best news is that first pre-orders will arrive on August 3rd, which is today. Of course, pre-ordering today would have you waiting a bit more.

But what kind of a tablet is the Galaxy Note 10.1 and how does it justify its $750 price tag? We don’t really think it does actually. It does come with a brand new quad-core Exynos chip, just like the one on the Samsung Galaxy S III, and it packs a powerful 2GB of RAM, but when it comes to the screen we’re looking at a rather run-of-the-mill 1280x800-pixel 10.1-inch display. This can’t match the super high-res 2048x1536-pixel screen on the new iPad. There’s also no LTE connectivity - you only get HPSA at a speed of up to 21Mbps for downloads.

At the same time, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is unique with its built-in S Pen. The stylus is said to offer better precision compared to generic capacitive styli. Will that make you buy it? Hit the source link below if so, and let us know why or why not below.

True. But you are ignoring a fact that these Negri Electronics are charging a price premium. They are doing it coz nobody else is shipping it right now. It "officially" not launched by Samsung yet, so we definitely don't have the quoted price from Samsung. Once it hits the shelf of major retailers, we will see the actual street price. Also this particular model comes with HSPA cellular connectivity. This adds a lot to the cost because of licensing. Normal WiFi model will be about $100 cheaper. Hang on till the actual announcement. Should be between 400-450.

I might buy it when the price drop. For now I'll stick with my rooted Sony Tablet S.
