A big-sized phone gets an even bigger tablet version. Without the phone.
The rumors were true. Samsung indeed announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 at MWC, which joins the Galaxy Tab in the range of Android tablets from the company. But there are differences.
Most obviously, the Note has the same S-pen stylus from the smartphone version and that may be it’s biggest selling point because of it’s note-taking ability and precision. It runs Ice Cream Sandwich, 1.4GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, WXGA (1280 x 800) display, 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with a 2 megapixel front facing one, and will come in 32 and 64GB variations that can be expanded through microSD. The difference here is also that you can’t use it as a phone, so those looking for a massively oversized phone might be disappointed. But other than that, looks quite good.
It’s quite confusing for consumers to see two tablets by the same brand in the market but I think Samsung has a marketing plan to distinguish them. What do you think?
