For a manufacturer that has refused to hold an official press conference at the 2012 MWC, Samsung is surely pretty busy, releasing product after product. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was first off yesterday, the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 was announced moments ago and now probably the most interesting gadget of the bunch is ‘’thrown to the lions as well’’.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10-inch slate with a snappy dual-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box and S Pen support. This new tablet is actually set to be the first product in a series of gadgets, according to official Samsung statements, with the Korean manufacturer being determined to deliver devices for all tastes and needs.
In terms of software, the slate runs Android 4.0, but as you would expect from Samsung it is heavily customized and modified. The TouchWiz user interface is the most important customization, but there are a bunch of other original Samsung apps, as well as some especially designed for pen stylus use.
Even though the most important ace up this tablet’s sleeve is clearly set to be the pen support, the slate also comes with a bit of power under its hood. There’s a 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 1 GB of RAM, as well as 16, 32 or 64 GB of on-board memory.
Sure, I would have liked a quad-core chipset as much as the next guy, but all in all this 10-incher should provide a decent amount of performance for pretty much any technology enthusiast out there.
Other features include dual cameras (a 3 MP rear-facing shooter with Auto Focus and Led Flash and a 2 MP front-facing webcam), as well as WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 and a microSD card slot. No words yet on the tablet’s price and release date, but stay tuned on Androinica to find out these details as soon as they will be officially announced!
