The Queen adds a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to the Royal Collection

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
When you think about Queen Elizabeth II, tablet computers aren't among the things that spring to mind. Yet here she is using one, and surprisingly, it isn't an iPad. Nope, Her Majesty is handling a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 instead.

The tablet is meant to become a part of the Queen's Royal Collection, and for the purpose, it has been equipped with what is being referred to as a "digital time capsule". That includes videos, photos, and text documents related to the past 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign. About 150GB of media has been submitted by more than 37,000 participants from 66 countries, but only 60 hand-picked items have been featured. The organizers of the project admitted that they originally planned to use an iPad, but after speaking with both Apple and Samsung, they decided to go with the latter's product.
