Samsung introduces Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 in NYC, launches in U.S. on August 16th at $499 and up
On Tuesday, we told you about Samsung's event in New York City that would introduce the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 in the States. The event has started and sure enough the Korean based manufacturer has introduced the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1. Funny how these things work out. For those in the U.S., the good news is that you do not have to wait long for one as the tablet will be available starting Thursday, August 16th.

The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 has some serious horsepower under the hood with a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor running the show. Being a GALAXY Note product, it comes with Samsung's S Pen. The 16GB model will cost $499 and the 32GB variant is priced at $549. While the tablet introduced today uses Wi-Fi connectivity, a 4G LTE model is expected out later this year.

During the festivities, Samsung also mentioned that it has sold 10 million units of the Samsung GALAXY Note smartphone. A sequel to the phablet, with a larger 5.5 inch screen rumored to be on the unit, is expected to be introduced August 29th, just prior to the IFA show in Berlin.

Multi screen feature is promising, but the "low" resolution is so disappointing. Probably note 2 can do multi screens as well, i would prefer to get the note 2. Samsung...don't try to fool your loyal customers, all your tablets won't be amazing until the one uses exynos 5

SAMSUNG please ADD A AMOLED or OLED screen on your tablet then I'll buy one or at least make a GALAXY TAB 2 for the 7"

Low res, no JB! This is niche product, who need the pen can consider. Otherwise this is an average tablet with premium price.

Underwhelming.... They learned from apple poorly. When Apple launch iPad 1/2 they keep mute on all the underwhelming tech under tight lips. Things such as low density screen, 256MB Ram in iPad 1, 0.3 VGA camera on the iPad 2. That's why apple in successful thru effective marketing. Samsung do try again, please!
