Earlier on this week we asked you for your thoughts on the painful delay for the Nexus 10 2013 release date, after Google no-showed yet again when rumors were suggesting a release during the busy shopping period. It turns out that most of you have taken matters into your own hands, deciding to skip Google’s tablet altogether and pick up the promising Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition instead.
With the specs that the newest 10.1 Note contains – we don’t blame you either. While Google’s Nexus 10 2013 is going to be first to any future software updates undoubtedly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 isn’t going to be too far behind and can also boast some hardware advantages over Google’s missing tablet.
3GB of RAM inside the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a big deal for consumers compared to the rumored 2GB on the Nexus 10 2013. The new Note 10.1 also comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which offers a quad-core 2.3 GHz clock speed, complimented by an Adreno 330 graphics unit.
The Galaxy Nexus 10 specs may well include a Tegra 4 setup if rumors are correct, but we think the specs on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 are more than good enough and certainly won’t make those who have bought one due to the Nexus 10 delay, regret their decision.
We had vast feedback from you saying that Google has now missed out on your money and that most have opted for the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition instead. There’s still no word on whether Google will release their tablet in 2013, with the lack of communication the most frustrating aspect of all for consumers.
Are you one of these consumers who grew tired with Google’s silence and picked up a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition during the sales? During Cyber Monday, we told you that Best Buy were offering the Note 10.1 2014 with a $50 discount, bringing the overall price to $500.
Did you take advantage of this particular offer? If you are now a new Note 10.1 user, let us know how your tablet is handling so far. Are you happy with the device, or wish you had waited for the Nexus 10 2013 despite Google’s silence?
