Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10.1-inch tablet computer designed, developed and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The tablet runs Android 4.1.2 and serves as a platform for multimedia consumption including movies, music, and web browsing. It is the second entry in the Samsung Galaxy Note range, which emphasises the use of a stylus, officially named S-Pen (S standing for Samsung), as an input device for tasks such as sketching and note-taking.
The Note 10.1 was originally unveiled on 27 February 2012 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, with a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor. The tablet was released in Germany, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates on 6 August 2012. This final version of the tablet incorporates a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor. The tablet comes with 16, 32 and 64 GB of internal storage, and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM. The Note 10.1 was launched in the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea on 16 August.
An upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has since been made available, both as an over-the-air update and through Samsung Kies. Samsung has customized the interface with its TouchWiz UX software. Certain Samsung applications offer a "Split screen" option by which two apps share the screen of this tablet.
Samsung's latest Premium Suite update adds features like S-Voice, Enhanced S-Pen Capabilities, etc.
The Note 10.1 was well received by numerous technology outlets. Dave Oliver of Wired UK technology magazine gave a rating of 9 out of 10. The Note 10.1 was praised for its versatility, fast processor, writing interface, expandable memory and quality camera and described as a worthy challenger to the iPad. TechCrunch stated that the tablet was "awesome, great, and brilliant," with a bunch of S-pen optimized apps as a great feature.
However, The Verge gave the tablet a 5.4 out of 10, concluding that it was "a disappointing Android tablet" and claimed the Note 10.1 had "sluggish performance". Engadget, although praising the capability of the Wacom S-Pen felt that the tab "feels like a niche device."
