Samsung goes into tablet overdrive, reveals Galaxy Note 10.1 (from MWC 2012)

Samsung goes into tablet overdrive, reveals Galaxy Note 10.1 (from MWC 2012)To be fair, Samsung acting like a prolific mofo isn’t exactly a new phenomenon, but things are getting pretty ridiculous with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 (both of ‘em), 7.7, 8.9, 10.1 and the just-announced Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

As if those six – count ‘em! – bad boys weren’t enough, prepare to meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. You heard me.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was of course rumoured a couple of weeks ago, and oh how we laughed. To be fair, it actually sounds pretty freakin' cool.

The question that immediately springs to mind is: Can the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 be used as a smartphone? The answer being: Don’t be silly, man. Dom Joly will be gutted.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is geared towards creativity and learning, with the now-familiar S Pen stylus thingy, and intriguing multi-screen action so you can scribble while you browse and watch content.

One example given by Samsung is observing a college lecture on a video stream on one screen while taking notes on another. Nice.

Meanwhile, S Note contains templates for meeting minutes, recipes, cards, diaries and more, while Shape Match, er, recognises shapes.

In terms of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 specs, we have a 1280 x 800 display, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and a 3MP/2MP camera combo, and it’ll come in 16, 32 and 64GB flavours with microSD support.

There’s no word on price or availability for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 just yet, but we’ll be poking Samsung with a big stick just as soon as we get the chance. It’s pretty busy over here, man.

So a samsung now has the galaxy note 10.1 and the galaxy 10.1. Genius. Well done Samsung-TC you have now saturated the market

Stelph, it's not called "saturating the market" any more, it's called "doing an HTC" :p.

I do agree with you though, this device simply needn't exist. They should have stopped wasting time on crap like this that'll sell about 4 units worldwide and have got the S3 ready for MWC :(.

This is the year Samsung goes HTC and HTC goes Samsung. You'd think they'd learn.

You'd imagine these multi-billion dollar companies would be run with more sense, it's not hard to see that the "churn out 34638496794386743 devices and see what sticks" method doesn't work and costs loads to implement.

Lets hope the S3 is still as brilliant as the S2 was last year, not a bit of a let down like the Sensation was.

Matty,
BGR have all the latest on the SGS3
http://www.bgr.in/manufacturers/samsung/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-full-specs-1-5ghz-quad-core-1080p-display-ceramic-case/

Looking good - almost no bezel, so despite the huge screen it shouldn't ruin any pockets.

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 27, 2012 at 16:23

Any idea how reputable that website is? I mean they're claiming it'll have a 4.8" 1080p display, that's a PPI of 458, way more than any other commercially available display, AFAIK.

It's all over twitter and the rest of the web's...
We'll have an article up in a sec with more details (touch wood)...
The screen specs have been rumoured for a while, dito the almost non-existing bezel...

All I can say is the One X can crawl back under the rock from whence it came :p.

It looks stunning, and the ceramic back is a step up from Samsung's flimsy battery covers I like to b*tch about so much :( :p

Sorry but no. fake fake fake.

with that little bezel you will pretty much be touching the screen constantly when say making calls or holding it vertically..

Ahem... why? Do you clutch your phone like a pint glass?
Not saying the pic IS real, but I don't see a problem with the bezel or lack thereof.

Treab  Feb. 27, 2012 at 17:14

ok place your thumb on the side of your phone and wrap your fingers as though your are holding it...

i will wait...

finished? no fine... jeez...

now look at your fingers? how close to the screen are they? now remove the bezel and ask the question again... sorry fake.

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 27, 2012 at 17:23

Treab, I balance my phone on my little finger when I use it, with or without bezel my fingers don't touch the screen.

Treab  Feb. 27, 2012 at 17:25

jebus how big is your little finger....

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 27, 2012 at 17:26

How small are your girly little hands ;)?

Treab  Feb. 27, 2012 at 17:28

my little finger is not 4.3" so if you balance your phone on the little finger then it must be huge...

it's a 4.7in screen. It won't be a problem.
Just tried it on the much smaller N9, and I have no idea why you think it would be? Sorry.

And this, by the way, isn't new news http://www.ubergizmo.com/2012/02/samsung-bezel-less-android-phone/

I still stand by my comment of 'fake' looks suspiciously like that russian pick weeks ago...
