Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Launching Tomorrow [video]

| August 15, 2012 | Reply

Samsung held a press conference today to announce that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 they had already announced will be available for purchase tomorrow. Lets go over some specs:

  • 1.4GHz Exynos Quad-Core Processor
  • 10.1″ WXGA(1280×800) LCD
  • 16/32/64GB User memory + 2GB (RAM) (SD expansion slot as well)
  • Dimension : 262 x 180 x 8.9 mm
  • Main(Rear) Camera: 5 Megapixel Auto Focus with LED Flash
  • Sub(Front) Camera: 1.9 Megapixel
  • $499 for the 16 gigabyte Wi-Fi model, and $549 for the 32GB Wi-Fi model.

Well, we can start with the good points. The thing has a quad core processor that will surely run ICS and JB without a hitch. At just 8.9mm thick, its about as thick as the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. The expandable memory is great as well. But lets look at the very glaring weak points. Lets start with the display. It’s about half of what the iPad is. And that might be OK if the other major downside didn’t exist. The price! It’s as much as the iPad and you get nowhere near the display, which is very important. Sure the tablet comes with a built in stylus that will add 6 new apps made just for the stylus when it is pulled out of its built in dock, but that isn’t saying a lot. The tablet also features a dual view mode which is actually quite nice. You can split two apps on the screen to allow for better multitasking. But again, his only works with a few apps. Samsung is on the right path with custom software and stylus interaction, but on the wrong path with pricing and display. Paying a premium for a stylus and a few apps won’t grab customers.
