The new Note tablet, with its 2560 x 1600 LCD display, boasts four times the pixel density of the first Galaxy Note 10. Stacked up against the 2012 model, the 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1 is also lighter at 535g (vs. 597g), is slimmer at 7.8mm (vs. 8.9mm), and has a much better rear camera at 8MP (vs. 5MP).
It still includes the Galaxy line's signature S Pen, which received added shortcut capabilities, like Air Command, which offers users a fan menu of features such as S Finder and Screen Write just by hovering the stylus over the display.
The tablet's standout features are the enhanced multitasking capabilities. Users can view several windows from the same application in a magazine-like format and rearrange the layout of the windows with the new S Pen.
Samsung also partnered up with publishers and apps to provide high-definition content on the tablet. The company is calling the free memberships and services "Samsung Content Gifts," which include built-in widgets from The New York Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, Autodesk, Flipboard, Twitter, Dropbox, and more.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available in two colors (jet black and classic white) and three connectivity options: WiFi only, WiFi + 3G, and WiFi + LTE. Compatible with the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch, Samsung's latest tablet will ship Sept. 25 worldwide and in October for the US. Before you consider buying, take a peek at all the tech specs.
