We have some very good news indeed for those of you who have been keeping an eye on Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 device. The tablet may be taking its time to come out, but the wait will be worth it as Samsung has made two key upgrades which should make a lot of you happy.
For those of you who missed it in February, the device was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At the time Samsung unveiled the device with a dual-core processor, but we can tell you that Samsung are now planning to include a quad-core Exynos processor instead.
The specific details on the processor hasn’t been disclosed, but we would imagine that it will be the same quad-core Exynos chip that is equipped inside the international Galaxy S III. Another major change that Samsung unveiled is a separate slot to house the device’s supplied stylus. The picture above shows you how that will look and it means that you now have a great little space to store the S Pen when not in use.
Despite the ‘Note’ name, this larger 10.1-inch device won’t be able to make phone calls. The stylus support warrants the ‘Note’ name in a way, but otherwise it is just a variant of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 if you like. Thanks to the quad-core processor though, this will probably be in higher demand than the Galaxy Tab 2. There’s still no word on pricing or when this will be available, but hopefully Samsung will release details of this soon.
Is this now a tablet that you simply need to own, or are you waiting on Google to release details of the upcoming ‘Nexus’ tablet? That could turn out to be the best Android tablet so far, but Google are remaining silent for now.
