The just released (on August 14, 2012) Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has some great features! It features a WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution TFT display with S Pen technology for easy sketching, annotation and note taking. The S Pen is so seamlessly integrated into the tablet I thought mine didn’t have one, but of course, it did - nicely hidden out of the way. If you feel the 16GB (or 32GB) of onboard storage isn’t enough for your music, movies, etc., there’s a microSD card slot so you can add up to another 32GB. It ships with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. This model is WiFi only and has built-in 802.11a/b/g/n wireless LAN. But there’s an exciting first for the Galaxy Note 10.1. It’s the only tablet (as of right now) that can run two different applications on a split screen. Not every application can do that, but on World News Now I used half the screen to playback a video I had recorded, while on the other half of the screen I was writing notes on the screen with my finger. Of course you’ll get much more control with the S Pen which lets you draw, annotate and create handwritten notes. There are two cameras. A 1.9MP front-facing camera along with a 5.0MP camera with auto focus and power LED flash allows you to capture very decent images. When looking at photos you shot, you can put a finger on each corner and zoom in and out by just tilting the Note back and forth. You can impress your friends quickly with this. Bluetooth 4.0 too for connecting other devices. It weighs only 1.3 lbs. and measures just 0.4" thin. This is one heck a tablet! I’ll update this as I get more user time with the Galaxy Note 10.1 Price: $499 (16GB) to $549 (32GB). Available now at most big box stores and at Amazon - link below. I have not shopped at this etailer.
