Samsung’s September 4 Unpacked event from the IFA in Berlin brought us the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the Galaxy Note 3, sure, but don’t forget the tablet Samsung also came to show off, this year’s Galaxy Note 10.1 refresh. With hardware like an Exnyos 5 Octa, 3GB of RAM (just like the Note 3), and that very high-res 2560 x 1600 screen, this sure sounded like one heck of a capable tablet. Following its unveiling, all that was left was for Samsung to make with the details on just how we’d finally be able to get our hands on the model. Today it does just that, sharing news of the Note 10.1 2014’s US retail launch.
Pre-orders for the tablet will commence tomorrow at the stroke of midnight EDT, with actual sales and availability for the new Note 10.1 kicking-off about two weeks later, on October 10.
The tablet comes in both black and white, and there’s the option for either 16GB or 32GB of storage. Pricing for two is about $550 and $600, respectively, and remember that you can always pop in a microSD card if neither of those quite meets your storage needs.
To sweeten the deal, Samsung includes three free months of Hulu Plus and SiriusXM, twelve weeks of The New York Times, a year of Bloomberg Businessweek, and 50GB of Dropbox for two years. There’s also an exclusive Twitter app, supporting S-pen input and Samsung’s multi-window mode.
