Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Priced, Pre-Orders Open

Samsung first revealed its Galaxy Note 10.1 as little more than a regular Galaxy Tab-series tablet with the addition of support for the Wacom stylus technology used in the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note. In the months that followed that announcement, we started to hear rumors that maybe Samsung was interested in making the Note 10.1 a bit more powerful than Samsung’s other tablet offerings, and would bump-up the model’s dual-core processor to a quad-core Exynos. Sure enough, Samsung’s making the change, which just left us wondering how this newly-refitted Note 10.1 would arrive. Today we learn of pre-orders opening up for the tablet, putting its launch price at just about $550.

With this quad-core chip under its hood, the Note 10.1 is setting itself up to be Samsung’s flagship tablet. Now that the upgrade has been confirmed, the only remaining piece of the Note 10.1 equation that falls a little short is the display, which only manages a 1280 x 800 resolution despite its size; a 1080p screen would have really helped to solidify the Note 10.1’s spot on top. As is, the tablet features 32GB of flash and a gigabyte of RAM.

Amazon is accepting Note 10.1 pre-orders, with expectations that the tablet will ship in three to five weeks. We guess that means Samsung won’t hit the rumored June launch window we heard about, but it’s thankfully quite the short wait, all the same.
