Update: Amazon has pulled the preorder page.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 can now be pre-ordered on Amazon.com.
Amazon revealed a $549 price tag for the Wacom-friendly Samsung tablet and also announced that the device will be available “within 3 to 5 weeks.” According to Amazon, the 10.1-inch device will run on a 1.4GHz quad-core Xeon processor to go along 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Wait, Intel Xeon processor? That’s probably a mistake, and the Amazon listing should read Samsung Exynos. The mistake leaves just a smidge of doubt that the Note 10.1 will ship with a quad-core processor as recently rumored instead of the dual-core unit the Note 10.1 had at its unveiling.
In addition to its internal specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will feature the S Pen that now docks within the tablet. There was no S Pen slot in the previous Note 10.1 design. To enable the Galaxy Note 10.1 to accommodate the S-Pen, Samsung has decided to slim the stylus down slightly. Samsung will also offer a “holder kit” that serves as a larger pen housing, making it easier to use.
We had a chance to demo the Galaxy Note 10.1 at the recent Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. Be sure to check out our hands-on preview with the upcoming Samsung tablet.
