The Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
The original Samsung Galaxy Note was interesting; it was a giant smartphone that come with pressure sensitive stylus. In many cases, it worked quite well, but some consumers complained that it’s too big as a smartphone and too tiny to be considered as a serious tablet. Enter its huge younger brother, the Galaxy Note 10.1.
The device is definitely not a member of the Tab family, as it does feel like an enlarged Galaxy Note. It comes with a Wacom digitizer (S-pen) and it doubles the sensitivity level to 256. The new pen offers a much better progression between softer and harder press. In the original Galaxy Note, users occasionally feel that they can’t get the right pressure level. For artists, the higher sensitivity will provide a much better response, which is one step closer to the sensitivity they get from a plain old pencil and a piece of paper. The S-pen is now larger and has rubberized tip which makes it easier to use. The rubber tip provides the resistance users get when they use pencil on a piece paper. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will match quite well with the Adobe Photoshop Touch, which brings high-end editing abilities to tablets. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t improved the camera in this device as it only features a measly 3Mp rear-facing snapper. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has an overall plasticky design and it still lacks the solid feel you get from an iPad. Inside, it still has standard stuff with 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) OS.
