First available in the US, Samsung's stylus-equipped Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched for the rest of the world, and can now be snatched from Samsung's brand store in Dubai Mall for 2599 AED (700$).
The Note 10.1 was first demoed by Samsung at MWC where we had some hands-on time with device. However, the dual-core processor that was driving the test unit is replaced by a powerful 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor for the final version. We salute Samsung for re-arming the Note 10.1 with high-end processing chops.
Being marketed as a content creation device, the Note allows you to draw, scribble and take notes, and can do true multi-tasking by displaying two apps simultaneously on the screen, side by side. This, of course, requires the fastest processor you can get your hands on, helped by a generous 2 GB serving of RAM memory.
Elsewhere, you'll find a brilliant 1280x800 pixel PLS screen (PLS is Samsung's equivalent of IPS panels), which can detect a wide range of pressure levels from the S-Pen Stylu
Handwriting recognition performance was also a step up from the Note. We were able to jot down notes quickly, and have them accurately changed into editable text, while freeform shapes such as improvised pie charts were intelligently recognized and neatly redrawn.
Photogpraphic needs are served by a 5 MP rear camera, and 1.9 Megapixel front one for video calling. The Note 10.1 runs Samsung's TouchWiz interface on top of Android 4.0. It is available in black and white liveries.
Stay tuned for the full review and video hands-on.
