Samsung has revealed it will be shipping the 2014 edition of its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in the United States next month. The updated large-screened tablet will be available to pre-order from midnight EST on September 27th, ahead of its October 10th shipping date, and though it will be available in 3G and 4G LTE versions in the future, only the Wi-Fi models will be going on sale at first.
At the IFA trade show, Samsung today showed the refreshed Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 edition tablet. The new device boasts a WQXGA LCD display running at 2560x1600 resolution in a 10-inch form factor, with a 1.9 GHZ eight-core processor in the 3G/WiFi version, or a 2.3GHz quad-core in the LTE model, with 3GB RAM. Also, the newest addition to the lineup brings Samsung's Knox security suite to the device.
Owners of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 should have begun receiving an update to Android version 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The update is being rolled out as an over-the-air download, and it enables a number of user interface and functionality changes. The update also fixes an exploit that renders Exynos 4-based processors vulnerable to malicious apps.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 users eagerly awaiting their update to Android 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’ are in for another treat. Samsung has also baked in the latest version of its multi-tasking, multi-window capable Premium Suite into the update as well. Some users have already started to receive the update as it starts to go live globally, extending the functionality of their tablets considerably as the animated video embedded highlights.
Samsung has sent out invites to a special event later next month. Invites asking to “Save the Date” of October 24th have been sent to media outlets, with the event being located somewhere in New York City. Despite the lack of a named product, the invite does still provide a few clues for what is to be revealed to the press.
Samsung announced today a new partnership with Memphis City Schools that will see the company's Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet placed in classrooms to engender a more interactive learning experience. The partnership is the first deployment of the Samsung Smart School Solution at a US school, and Samsung hopes it will demonstrate the educational potential of its new stylus-driven tablet. The pilot program was officially launched at an event held at the Geeter Middle School last Friday,
Samsung announced its Galaxy Note 10.1 as signaling a seismic shift in the way tablets are used. Electronista has its hands on a copy for review, and we're in the process of seeing just how productive one can be with Samsung's productivity tablet. For now, take a look at our first impressions of the device, as well as some images showing off both the tablet and its stylus.
A teardown of the recently-released Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 shows the tablet to be fairly easy to repair. The iFixit team notes that the process is relatively simple compared to the iPad, since Samsung has opted to use Phillips screws and a number of clips and connectors. The Note 10.1 gets a repairability score of 8 out of 10, versus 2 for the iPad.
Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy Note 10.1, with the US version going on sale tomorrow. At an event in New York City, company executives were joined by fashion designer Zac Posen and director Baz Luhrmann to show off the tablet, which unlike the secrecy surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S III announcement earlier this year, was known about well in advance. The event also revealed that the original Galaxy Note, released nine months ago, has sold over 10 million units worldwide.
The long overdue Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is now official and due for a global rollout this month. First unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in February, the version that will hit store shelves is substantially reworked from what could be best described as an early prototype by comparison with the shipping model. The Galaxy Note 10.1 shown at CES did not have a slot for an S Pen, and only ran a dual-core processor. The Galaxy Note 10.1 that goes on sale this month will be powered by Samsung's quad-core Exynos 4112, matched with 2GB of RAM and comes with an integrated S Pen slot.
