Samsung Introduces Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet With S Pen Stylus


When Samsung sent out invitations to its MWC event earlier this month, it mentioned a then-unknown device, the Galaxy Note 10.1. At the time, we weren’t quite sure what to make of that, short of that it sounded like Samsung might be using this model as an opportunity to introduce the Galaxy Note’s S Pen to its tablet lineup. Sure enough, this morning Samsung formally revealed the Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, complete with an S Pen stylus.

Aside from the S Pen, there’s not much to distinguish the Note 10.1 from Galaxy Tab devices. It runs a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, has a 1280×800 10.1-inch screen, and a three-megapixel main camera with two-megapixel front-facer. We were hoping the Note 10.1 might have gone with a higher-resolution display and possibly even a quad-core processor, but instead we’re left with hardware that, a bump in CPU clock speed aside, doesn’t look much different from the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 we showed you yesterday.

If you liked the idea of the S Pen on the Note, but weren’t 100% convinced by the implementation, you’ll be glad to know that it looks like Samsung’s tweaked the pen’s design here. At the least, there’s now a bump on the pen’s side button, which should help with usability a bit.
