Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1-2014 edition is released

The version of the tablet being released today has Wi-Fi only connectivity. It does have some beastly specs, with a 2560 x 1600 resolution on the 10.1 inch glass. The slab is powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa CPU with 3GB of RAM and an 8MP rear camera. If you're looking to find this device, your best bet is to check out Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile, BestBuy.com, Amazon, PC Richard's, Fry's, Tiger Direct, Walmart and Samsung.com. No, your search does not have to be in that exact order.

Can't wait to get this and replace my nexus 10. Owning a nexus 10 has been a miserable experience for me. The note is a beast of a tablet.

Can you tell what you didn't like about Nexus ? (As I am considering buying one) Thanks.

Its laggy. The display is great even though colors are a little washed out but the performance and software is the issue. There's times when I have to press the power button like 10 times for it wake up. It also freezes and reboots randomly. Everytime i'm on the internet or in a app and I exit to the home screen it lags and the wallpaper takes an additonal 30 seconds to load. Theres also times when the screen just doesn't want to come on at all. I would have to hold the power button for a minute or 2 for it to come on. For a premium tablet it should perform alot better. I don't know if its the software or the hardware but the performance is horrible. I love the tablet design and everything about it but the performance is truly horrendous. My personally experience with the nexus 10 is horrible. The build quality and everything else is great tho. I really like it as a tablet but the performance is truly bad. I own multiple other android devices like the note2 and s4 that run jelly bean and the performance is great so I don't know if its jelly bean or the tablet itself.

I have a Nexus 10 and love it. No issues like you're describing. Did you update to Android 4.3? Anyway, Galaxy Note isn't enough of an upgrade for me to switch. I'm waiting for the new Asus Transformer Infinity TF701T with Tegra 4 (or even better, Samsung Ativ Q if it ever gets released).

That will make your S pen useless. But specwise, this tablet is still a beast.

No, it won't. Flash a ROM that is based on Touchwiz and he'll be in good shape. I never ever thought I'd say this.. but I actually prefer the TW based ROMS. I went Vanilla Android and had to go back to TW.

Exactly my thoughts in regards of going back to TW. Sometimes, it just works. Now I'm wondering whether to sell my iPad 4 and get this beast to replace my big touchscreen needs, and also as a laptop replacement (somewhat).

Wow I'm glad I didn't get the nexus 10 but anyways I'm waiting for the LTE version of the SN10.1 (2014)E to come out for Verizon so I can finally replace my iPad.... So far there is no better tablet out there on Verizon!
