The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10.1-inch tablet computer designed, developed and marketed by Samsung Electronics. The tablet runs Android 4.0.3 (Android 4.1.2 in Europe) 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.

Details[edit]

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.[4] The tablet was released in Germany, Saudi Arabia and the UAE on 6 August 2012. This final version of the tablet incorporates a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor.[5] 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.[6]

In 2014, Samsung began a rollout of Android 4.4.2 KitKat[1] upgrade in Europe, both as an over-the-air (OTA) update and through Samsung Kies. Samsung customized the interface with its updated TouchWiz UX software.

Reception[edit]

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.[7] TechCrunch stated that the tablet was "awesome, great, and brilliant," with a bunch of S-pen optimized apps as a great feature.[8]
