GALAXY Note 10.1

Ahead of its official launch in the United States, Samsung re-announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in order to inform the public of its new features, functionality, and hardware.  We saw an unboxing of the Galaxy Note 10.1 a few weeks ago that revealed much of its revamped specs, but now we have official Samsung confirmation.

To begin, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 features a 10.1 inch display, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 5MP rear facing camera, 1.9MP front facing camera, WiFi, Android 4.0, and memory capacities of 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB.  In terms of software features, the Galaxy Note 10.1 offers Pop Up Play, AllShare Play, several Samsung Hubs, S Suggest, and S Pen support.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 prides itself on its multitasking prowess.  In fact, the device offers split-screen app viewing, which means you can leave email open on half the screen and have a YouTube video playing in the other half.

My only disappointment with the Galaxy Note 10.1 is the fact that it is running Android 4.0 when it launches later this month.  However, I am sure Samsung will update it to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but the time frame for the upgrade is unknown at this time.  Expect individual markets to launch the Galaxy Note 10.1 with its own prices and availability dates, but I imagine we will find out that information for the United States on August 15.
