    Samsung's Galaxy Note tablets are among the best tablets money can buy. Not only do they often bear the best specifications around, they also come with tons of value proposition in the form of unique software and hardware geared towards utility, multitasking, and productivity.

Which of Samsung's most recent Galaxy Note tablets is the best, however? That's what we aim to find out. We put the latest Note 10.1 up against the smaller Note 8.0. Watch the 2014 Galaxy ...

    Samsung is unquestionably capable of making some compelling tablets – Android and Windows alike. Last year, the Nexus 10 was widely considered one of the best Android tablets available. Its display was one of the best tablet displays around. And it ran the purest form of Android possible. This year, Samsung's penchant for tablets is just as strong as ever. And the latest addition to its lineup is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. With 3GB RAM, the same resolution display, S Pen, TouchWiz's multitasking software, and the Exynos Octa chipset, is the Note 10.1 2014 Edition enough to take ...

    Samsung has released several high-end smartphones in the last year with monster specifications. Yet all its tablets have been lacking that special ingredient to set them apart from the masses. They all sported low-end displays, year-old chipsets, and less than stellar build quality. This year, Samsung stepped upped its game with the Galaxy Note series, alleviating all doubt that the Note lineup is anything but high-end. The 10.1-inch 2014 model of the Galaxy Note bears some of the best specifications we've seen in a tablet to date: a 10.1-inch 2,560 by 1,600 pixel resolution LCD display, ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

    Yes, it's still 2013 - you don't need to double check your calendar. Nevertheless, Samsung's already introducing us to its 2014 tablet lineup, and today announced its new Galaxy Note 10.1. While the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear were the obvious stars of the company's Unpacked event, the 2014 Note 10.1's improvements over last year's model are arguably even more significant than the changes we see from Note II to 3, especially in that jump up to the new WQXGA 2560 X 1600 resolution. Under the hood, the improvements are similarly as impressive, with the Note 10.1 getting Exynos 5 Octa and ...

    Samsung and Sony are throwing today's big IFA press events, and while Sony's conference had a bit of the air let out on it thanks to full details on the Xperia Z1 and Cyber-shot QX-series cameras leaking, Samsung still has some surprises up its sleeve. For all we've seen of Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear leaks, there have still been a whole lot of unknowns, but that's exactly why we came to Berlin in the first place: to get answers about new hardware. Sure enough, Samsung got things underway with CEO JK Shin introducing the Galaxy Note 3. He started getting into specs a little, talking ...

    With mobile devices, arguably the most important specification is the display. Yes, other specifications are vital, too. Of course, you wouldn't have a smartphone without a large battery, capable processor, GPU, RAM, or storage. But with tablets and smartphones, the primary input and output is the display. It's how you navigate the device, input text, read information, watch videos, and practically everything else you can do with mobile devices. The rapid advancement of display technology only lends credence to the importance of the display. (Not that anyone should dispute the fact ...

    Yesterday we told you about Verizon's efforts to start offering LTE service on its newly-acquired AWS spectrum space, with the first markets going live later this year. Like T-Mobile did for phones like the Note II when it switched-on its own LTE network, Verizon revealed plans to activate this AWS mode on specific handsets through a future firmware update, giving them access to higher-speed data. At the time, the only phone we knew would be getting such an update was Samsung's Galaxy S 4. Today, we can expand that list a bit, and thankfully for once it's a cross-platform affair. Both the ...

    Last week, following the introduction of the Galaxy S 4, we talked a little about Samsung's promises to bring some of the GS4's features to existing Samsung models. Today, we're back to looking at what the future holds for updates to a number of Samsung devices, this time concerning the possibility of them seeing get Android 5.0. This info is supposedly a "pre-list" from a Samsung insider, and the data may change between now and when Samsung makes its final decisions. Basically, of all Samsung Androids currently announced, only the Galaxy S 4, the GS3, the Note II, Note 8.0, and Note 10.1 ...

    Any company, regardless of industry, is only as successful as its marketing reach. If someone doesn't know about a product, they can't buy it. Some companies do this by word of mouth, others turn to social networks to spread the news of their products, others spend gazillions of dollars on TV and more traditional ads. Each marketing strategy has its strengths and weaknesses, and each appeals to a different demographic segment. Samsung decided to go all-in with the Oscars this year, placing six ads -- one including a cameo by film director Tim Burton. The agency behind the ad campaign, ...

    Thanked to some early pics, we already know what to expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 to look like, and even though we've heard Samsung confirm that the tablet will debut at the MWC this month, we hadn't yet seen any official imagery of it. Well, it looks like either someone slipped up, or Samsung is just interested in giving us a little preview, as what could be the Note 8.0 has now been spotted in some new promo pics for the Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung just introduced a new Garnet Red color option for the Note 10.1 LTE in South Korea, and while that model takes the foreground in the ...

    I don't know how many millions of dollars BlackBerry paid singer-songwriter Alicia Keys to take her post as the company's official "Creative Director." I only know that it was millions too many. That's not a reflection on Keys as an artist, or really even as a person. If I were a world-renowned musician, and a well-regarded company came calling with a bagful of money and an honorary corporate title, I'd be stumping for them before you can say "sellout." I have no issue with celebrities making a quick buck at the behest of a corporation. Rather, my quarrel is with the corporations ...

    If you've had your ear to the ground over the past day or so, you know the Galaxy Note 8.0 is all but assured a grand unveiling at MWC 2013 in Barcelona next month. Sources say the tablet will come with a 5MP rear-facing camera, probably some form of Exynos processor, and -of course- an 8-inch display with a rumored 1280x800 resolution. That's not all that exciting on the surface: we've seen those specs, or variations thereon, spread across many devices already. But bundling them together inside one chassis, especially one bearing the prestigious Note sub-brand, is exciting. Samsung is no ...

    Samsung's only real Android hardware news at its press event last night was the arrival of an LTE-enabled version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 for Verizon. We spent a little hands-on time with the tablet to give you a glimpse at what you can expect. Just like the initial Note 10.1, Verizon's version takes full advantage of Samsung's S-Pen stylus, but starts out a little bit ahead of its predecessor thanks to the inclusion of Jelly Bean right out of the gate. As you'll see in the video, Jelly Bean makes a big difference in system responsiveness, especially when running two apps at once. ...

    Now it's Samsung's time to shine at the CES, and like LG and AT&T before it, it's very focused on connected devices and the interactions between them. Samsung got started with its new TVs, and its S-Recommendation system for streaming content. The idea is that S-Recommendation connects to your smartphone, tablet, and PC, and pulls all the content stored on those devices together for you to enjoy in one place. But enough about connected appliances – we're here for the smartphones and tablets. First up down that alley, Samsung announced that an LTE-enabled Galaxy Note 10.1 is coming to ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, while a tad late to the market since its introduction at MWC 2012, has shipped with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich on-board, one of the main reasons we said in our review that it is "snappy, but everyday activities are not always “buttery smooth”. However, those who have the Note 10.1 (and are still running stock), can now update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean as (almost) the latest Android version is being pushed out by the manufacturer. The OTA update has been reportedly sighted in Germany which means that other regions should be enabled soon. Source: ...

    Late last month, we saw some evidence that Samsung might be working on a new entry for its Note series of stylus-based Androids, appearing as model GT-N5100 in some regulatory documents and a User Agent Profile. While we didn't have much info on the hardware itself, that model number, and specifically the letter "N" there, suggested that this would be a Note. After all, existing Note hardware has been in the N7000 or N8000 series. Now that model shows up again, this time with some benchmark results, and sheds a little more light on just what it might be. While the 5100's UAProf reported ...

    If you're a fan of the stylus, Samsung is the manufacturer to turn to, churning-out models like the new Galaxy Note II and larger Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. While you've got some choice there, what if you prefer a more mid-sized tablet – something closer to the seven or even nine-inch range? Samsung may be developing just such a Note tablet, as revealed through some DLNA certification paperwork and the discovery of a User Agent Profile The DLNA paperwork doesn't delve much into about the device itself, but gives us model number GT-N5100. The GT-N prefix suggests that we're looking at ...

    "You know what the world needs? Another ten-inch tablet." That's something we haven't heard from, well, anyone recently. But that's apparently not stopping the combined force of Google and Samsung, who appear ready to drop a plus-sized Nexus tablet on the populace this coming Monday. The device went from rumor to all-but-confirmed in a relatively short period of time, finally getting pictured this afternoon after being referenced in a user-manual leak earlier in the week. As we discussed in this morning's edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, the new device is rumored to sport an ...

    This holiday season is shaping up to be absolutely insane in the mobile technology space, with new products landing almost more quickly than we can cover them. The pace of announcement and release shows no sign of slowing, but if you're an OEM, one of the nice things about launching a truly impressive beast of a device is that it stays in the headlines a while. Such is the case with the Galaxy Note II, a device we featured rather heavily in the weeks leading up to and following its release, crowned by the longest review I've ever written. It's one of the year's most significant devices, ...

    I'm looking at a press release that flashed into my inbox this morning, a notice from AT&T that the company will soon be launching three new smartphones and a tablet. Surveying the list, it quickly becomes apparent that all of these newcomers have two things in common: they're all built by Samsung, and they all bear the word "Galaxy" in their names. That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one; Samsung has been using the celestial surname to denote its Android smartphone and tablet products for years. But as the South Korean OEM continues to flood the market with more and more ...

    Overnight, we told you about reports we had heard of Jelly Bean arriving for international Galaxy S III handsets. Since then, Samsung's confirmed the start of its Android 4.1 distribution for the model, as well as offered a look at which of its other smartphones and tablets will be seeing their own Jelly Bean updates arrive in the future. The biggies like the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note make the cut, obviously, along with the Galaxy S Advance, S II LTE, Chat, Ace 2, Ace Plus, Beam, Mini 2 and the Galaxy S Duos. On the tablet side, Samsung says to expect Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched ahead of the Note II bringing the stylus to the tablet. You can check out our unboxing and make sure to stay tuned for the upcoming review but if you already have a Note 10.1 running Ice Cream Sandwich out-of-the-box you might be interested in a Jelly Bean OTA leak. A couple of notes: it is not yet available to download over-the-air (or by KIES) but if you decide to give it a go from the source link below you'll have to know that it will only work on model numbers GT-N8000. Also, this is a test ROM so expect some glitches; however, if you want to ...
