Today, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona officially kicked-off and companies are now assiduously demonstrating their latest innovations. The South Korean manufacturer Samsung for example has unveiled yet another new tablet, dubbed Galaxy Note 10.1, which “expands the Galaxy Note experience in creativity, productivity, and learning.” Unfortunately, there is still no word on pricing and an exact release date (or month).
JK Shin, who is the President of IT & Mobile Communications at Samsung, was quoted as saying: "GALAXY Note 10.1 takes productivity on a Note to a whole new level. With a larger, fully utilizable 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," … “With GALAXY Note 10.1 we are demonstrating Samsung's commitment to extend the mobile category and are working with key partners like Adobe to provide extraordinary experiences for users that enable them to be more productive, express themselves creatively and add a touch of fulfillment to their lives."
This is definitely a busy month for Samsung, because the maker has already announced the Galaxy Tab 2.0 (7.0) and Galaxy Tab 2.0 (10.1) slates, and now this one. The new Note 10.1 tablet (which is apparently a larger version of the Galaxy Note 5.3 “phablet”) will reportedly be powered by an unspecified Dual-Core central processing unit with a clock frequency of 1.4GHz. Furthermore, it packs, as you might have already guessed, a 10.1 WXGA touchscreen display (with multi-screen functionality for sketching your ideas while simultaneously browsing the Internet/watching videos etc.) that has a native resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels.
The manufacturer has also revealed in a press release that the tablet houses 1GB operating RAM and comes with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage capacity (expandable by up to 32GB through the built-in microSD card slot). Moreover, customers will supposedly be provided with the “innovative” S-Pen, a stylus that delivers enhanced pressure sensitivity accompanied by better accuracy and control when writing. Other features of the Galaxy Note 10.1 include HSPA+ connectivity, support for GPS and Glonass (the Russian satellite system for navigation), a 7000mAh battery and dual cameras (a 3MP camera on the back and a 2MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing).
Samsung claims that the tablet will run a pre-installed Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system with their TouchWiz user interface on top.
