The tale of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is an interesting one. It was originally announced during MWC 2012, but then receive a redesign in May that introduced a quad-core processor and a compartment for the S-Pen within the device.
Without ever officially launching, a South Korean blog managed to get their hands on the Galaxy Note 10.1 and their unboxing report reveals some new and exciting information regarding the 10.1 inch Galaxy Note. The original specs on the tablet were a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and 1GB RAM. At the time, it was quite impressive, but now it is rather common. However, the first official redesign inserted a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, and the unboxing claims it features 2GB of RAM.
Moving on, it contains a 5MP rear facing camera, S-Pen support, and a slot on the device for S-Pen. According to the unboxing post, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can connect with your phone to send text messages and even place calls via its speaker phone. While these features definitely sound interesting, we’re not sure what the underlying technology is or whether it is locked to Samsung smartphones only.
An earlier report claimed the August 15 Samsung Galaxy event was for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, but perhaps it is also for the Galaxy Note 10.1. Whatever the case, we are certainly in for an exciting August, and I personally hope Samsung announces the Galaxy Note II and this revamped Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
