Samsung reveals Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet

When Samsung first announced the Galaxy Note, reviewers were blown away with the smartphone's huge 5.3 inch screen. However, that wasn't enough for Samsung. Today, the company officially announced plans to launch a 10.1 inch version of the Galaxy Note, turning it into a full fledged tablet device.

The 10.1 inch version will keep the original's S Note stylus and software which will allow its users to write notes on apps, sketch drawings or concepts and more. It also comes with versions of Adobe Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas that are optimized for the tablet and the S Note.

The hardware inside the Galaxy Note 10.1 includes a 1.4 Ghz dual core processor and runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box. Samsung has yet to reveal a release date or price point for the device.

This represents just the latest Android tablet that has been launched by Samsung since it released the original Galaxy Tab over a year ago. So far none of the tablets have been a sales hit for the company, which is something that even its executives admit. In a story at News.com, Hankil Yoon, a product strategy executive for Samsung, said on Monday during a World Mobile Congress meeting, "Honestly, we're not doing very well in the tablet market."

Why are they competing with themselves? Tab vs Note?

"Oh, and btw, iPad can be equipped to use a stylus for artists, and also be loaded Adobe Photoshop Touch."

True, but the Note is apparently pressure-sensitive.

Samsung is a mess. THey're releasing the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, as well as the Galaxy Note 10.1?

The galaxy brand is already abused as it is.

I was just thinking the sameā€¦ They're bringing out a whole new line based on a stylus?

Samsung is such a copy-whore it's not even funny... Think back a few years, we already had stylus-enabled phones powered by Windows Mobile 6.x, 5.x (and many versions before that), and we also had stylus-enabled tablets long ago from Fujitsu and HP running Windows XP for crying out lout!

Oh, and btw, iPad can be equipped to use a stylus for artists, and also be loaded Adobe Photoshop Touch.

Samsung, stop ripping off everyone else in every product you make, and get creative if you want my respect back.

WTF? Is it a Tab or a Note? I thought the Tab was a tablet and the Note was either a really big phone or a really small tablet that also happened to be a phone.

I still can't figure out why the Note is phone. While it having the capability to be a phone is nice for convenience, I don't want to hold that 5" beautiful monstrosity for a phone call. I saw the Note as my tablet of choice, with the nicety of phone calls, it I left my actual phone somewhere.

::so confused::

Did the Tab have the custom stylus solution?

Thought u can just buy a stylus?

Though I guess you can also make calls with it.. I guess you'll have to use a Bluetooth headset definitely

Am I right that this device defaults as landscape? If so a touch of genius and hopefully keep apples0mouth shut, makes so much more sense!

They need not worry about Apple with this one, but rather Microsoft, Fujitsu, HP, and every other company that came out with devices like this nearly a DECADE ago!

Apple is just laughing that Samsung is so pitiful that they cannot come up with anything fresh on their own.

It has a GSM/CDMA radio in it? If its the "larger version of the Note" then that's what that means, right?

Just like most tablets it has the option for that. You can either buy just the WIFI version or the 3G version.
