Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1: By Royal Appointment

Queen selects Android tablet to create digital time capsule

Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has been chosen for the creation of a "digital time capsule" that will be added to the Royal Collection by the Queen

The tablet will be loaded with multimedia clippings - submitted by people from across the planet - recounting memories of the Queen Elizabeth's 60-year reign.

According to the BBC, over 150GB worth of data was submitted. But, since the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 only goes up to 64GB of storage, the submissions had to be whittled down to just 60 audio, video and text entries.

The Royal Commonwealth Society organised the project and, after considering the iPad, decided on Samsung's Android tab as the right slate for the job.

The Queen will spend a bit of time with the tablet, perusing the entries, until she hands it over to the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle where it will stay for future generations.

It's a decent spot of Royal PR for the South Korean company, which is currently riding high after a UK judge ordered Apple to pay its legal fees following the latest round of courtroom antics that were settled in its favour.
