Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a “multitasker’s dream”

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a “multitasker’s dream”With Android tablets typically finding success around the 7in mark (see Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire), rumour had it that Samsung – despite its “one size doesn’t fit all” motto – had done away with the 10.1 Note concept entirely.

But how wrong you were, rumourmongers. Make room in your brains for the surprisingly-decent-sounding Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, described as a “multitasker’s dream”. Interdasting.

Perusing the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition spec sheet, we have a 10.1in display (obvs) with a Google Nexus 10-matching resolution of 2560 x 1600 (300PPI). Nice.

Actually, looking back, that’s twice as many pixels per inch as the original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Major lolicopter, Samsung. Well done.

Other Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 specs include a 2.3GHz quad-core or 1.9GHz octo-core processor depending on region, Jelly Bean Android 4.3, and a generous 3GB of RAM.

That 3GB of RAM will come in handy for your Galaxy Note 3-style multitasking (including Multi Window etc), which Samsung says is “even better” on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Makes sense, given the increased display real estate.

Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition has similar textured backing, stitching and serration to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so it’s like an even bigger diary.

In terms of thickness and weight, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition shaves off a good 1mm and 65g compared to its predecessor (now 7.9mm and 535g).

Oh, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition battery gets a decent boost too, from 7,000mAh to 8,220mAh.

Don’t let the name fool you; the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition will start rolling out globally from September 25 this year, and it’ll be available in six colours.

I think Samsung might've finally churned out an Android tablet that I'd consider buying. Good lord.

I have a massive soft spot for the 7.7, doesn't it have a lovely SAMOLED+ HD display? IIRC, the only SAMOLED+ HD display Samsung have ever produced.

Yes the display is amazing just wish it would get jelly bean

Is it not possible via a custom ROM?

I think the 3g version has been given jelly bean in some markets but not the wifi version, as for custom rom im afraid I don't know how to do it :-(

Finally the **** have decided to give the Galaxy note 10.1 a decent screen!

The same spec is available elsewhere for less - Nexus 10 is £300 of the bay brand new sometimes. So the killer feature of this is the S-Pen of course, which is the only reason for buying the original Note 10.1 for me anyway.

Good to see Samsung continue to upgrade the Note range, I think they are definalty onto something with the stylus and also the multitasking and self developed app range.

Itd be nice to get a review of the samsung own range of apps as, to my mind, thats what sets the samsung note tablets out from the rest of the "me too" android tablets, as they must help smooth over the lack of tablet specific apps on Android, espeically compared to iOS

Only stand-out Android tablets if you ask me, and this looks like an improvement in all the right directions.
