3GB of RAM, 2560x 1600 screen resolution and a 1.9GHz Octa Core processor are a few of the highlights of Samsung’s latest version of its Note tablet, the 10.1.

 

The large, bright and crystal clear screen delivers four times the pixel density of the original Galaxy Note 10.1, while the magazine style UX allows users to organise their favorite resources in an easy-to-use dashboard.

 

The device’s screen size is also claimed to enable better multitasking. With Multi Window, users will be able to run separate instances of the same application, and use a S Pen to drag and drop content from one window to another. Pen Window enables users to draw a window of any size on the screen, and instantly access in-application features such as YouTube or calculator.

 

The updated S Pen is said to improve responsiveness, deliver day-to-day efficiency enhancements and produce more creative input capabilities. The tablet also includes Galaxy Note 3's updated S Pen features such as Action Memo, Scrapbook, Screen Write and S Finder. Combined with the tablet’s larger screen, these enhanced S Pen capabilities present users with unique creative opportunities and the space to explore them.

 

With new Scrapbook capabilities, users can indicate any interesting content with the S Pen and organise it into individualised scrapbooks, creating a log of discussion points for a future work conversation, a wish list for new clothes, or a home redesign project, or a personal favorites list.

 

S Note has been upgraded with a more intuitive interface. Users will have access to both note files and notepads, with the ability to use the S Pen to take handwritten notes. With Easy Chart, hand-drawn visualisations of data can be transformed into more formal charts and graphs.

 

The Samsung Content Gifts include content from news sources such as Bloomberg Businessweek+, The New York Times, Autodesk Sketchbook for Galaxy for painting and sketching, a redesigned version of social broadcast network Twitter optimized for the device, and more.

 

It will also include a Samsung Apps widget that will direct users to additional content provided by Samsung. The widget will live on the home screen and include a “Special Offer for Galaxy” section that will highlight country-based content for users.

 

The new Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with privacy and security protection provided by Samsung Knox. Samsung Knox allows users to run and store security-sensitive applications and data inside a protected execution environment called “container.” The security inside the container is strengthened by system-level protection of Samsung Knox against malware and phishing attacks as well as hacking attempts on physical devices when devices are stolen or lost. For instance, important personal pictures or video can be stored in the container with no worries for data leakage due to hacking. In addition, users may choose to store enterprise applications and data such as corporate email, contacts and calendar and allow the IT department to manage the container through EAS (Exchange ActiveSync Server). These features make the Galaxy Note 10.1suitable for BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device to work)

 

This device will come in three connectivity options: Wifi only, wifi and 3G, WiFi and LTE, available in 16Gb, 32GB and 64GB + Micro SD. It comes with two color options, black and white.
