Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet   Officially Unveiled

On Wednesday Samsung officially unveiled its second generation Galaxy Note 10.1, which hits the shelves today, August 16th. Taking over as their new flagship tablet, this device is ready to compete with all the other high-end tablets on the market taking the best from the extremely popular Galaxy S III and combining it with their 5.3-inch display and their new electronic stylus, the ‘S’ pen. While it isn’t bigger in size than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is packed with its own new set of bells and whistles. Among the most notable, the Note 10.1 is capable of running multiple programs at once through its live panel software, syncing and sharing content with other Samsung devices (think sharing a video in real time with a t.v.), and giving you full design control of Adobe Photoshop touch with the S pen. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available in 16, 32, and 64GB sizes, all of which will be WiFi and micro-SD compatible, and will be packed with a load of pre-installed software. Both the grey and white versions of the Galaxy Note 10.1 come with a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 1.9MP front-facing camera.  This device will be available beginning August 16th at Samsung retailers and online.

Many people I talk to think it is going to be nice to write freely on the Galaxy Note 10.1 and I couldn’t agree more. As a student, I feel a tablet with a data plan would be better, so I may have to wait a bit. After playing on my Dish coworker’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, I found having a data plan useful for opening documents or streaming when wifi isn’t available. I like to watch my live and recorded TV to my phone through the Sling Adapter that I have connected to my receiver at home. It would be nice to open the Dish Remote Access app on the Note and catch up on a few shows or finish an essay wherever I am. We will see how good the Note 10.1 is!
