Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 confirmed at MWC 2012

Samsung expands its array of tablet offerings at MWC 2012 as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 debuts with an S-Pen stylus and specific apps

 

Samsung has brought an end to weeks of rumours officially unveiling its latest touch and pen tablet at MWC 2012 in the form of the repeatedly leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Following on from the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, the Samsung Note 10.1 has adopted a more traditional 10.1-inch form factor with touchscreen controls and the less-standard S-Pen (a pressure sensitive stylus) and S-Note software, as well as specifically designed Adobe editing software.

In a press conference at MWC, the company said that the major difference between the Note and Tab 10.1 is the S-Pen functionality, which encourages a different user experience, according to Samsung.

“The Galaxy Note 10.1 takes productivity on a Note to a whole new level,” said Simon Stanford, head of Samsung’s UK and Ireland Telecommunications and Networks Division. “With a larger, fully utilisable screen and superior performance, it combines the intuitiveness of handwriting with all the versatility of digital content to let users be more productive across all of life’s demanding tasks—whether working, learning, or simply creating their own stories.

“The Galaxy Note 10.1 demonstrates Samsung’s commitment to extending the mobile category and we are working with key partners like Adobe to provide extraordinary experiences for our customers enabling them to be more productive and allowing them to express themselves creatively.”

Samsung stated that it would be actively recruiting developers to create bespoke apps for the two Note tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Specs

Running Google’s latest smartphone and tablet bridging mobile operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is fully attuned for doodling and note taking with the S-Pen stylus coming packaged alongside the Korean company’s TouchWiz and S Pen Experience software.

Landing alongside the tablet’s 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p PLS TFT display, the 8.9mm thick device boasts a 3-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a second, 2-megapixel snapper on the front with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and a 7,000mAh Li-ion battery providing the grunt.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Release Date

Like yesterday’s unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Beam projector phone and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there is currently no official word of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 UK release date with pricing information also still to be announced for the company’s latest tablet offering.

Is Samsung going overboard with its onslaught of recent tablet offerings or challenging the market dominating iPad from a variety of angles? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review

With the improved form-factor, the new TouchWiz interface and the specs as well it wouldn't be untrue to say that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the closest thing we've ever seen to an iPad beater
