That Samsung would unveil the Galaxy Note 10.1 at Mobile World Congress was a given, especially after signage promoting the large-screen Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 tablet was on display before the show. Now, it’s finally official.
Samsung took the wraps off the stylus-toting tablet on the first day of the mobile expo, just weeks after launching the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note in the States. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz and features a 1.4 GHz dual-core chip. It will have a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 display and 1GB of RAM. It will also support Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and HSPA+. Unlike its smaller cousin the Galaxy Note 10.1 won’t function as a phone.
Additional features include a 3-megapixel rear- and 2 megapixel front-facing shooter, and of course the S Pen. Inking apps include Shape Match and Formula Match for digitizing doodles and formulas, as well as Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas.
It will also sport a GPS and come with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of flash memory. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
TabletPCReview is in Barcelona for the show and the team is eager to try out the bigger, and arguably better, Galaxy Note.
