A cofounder of a software consulting firm decided to rely only on the Samsung Galaxy Note for all computer-related work for one full year. Benjamin Robbins, cofounder of Palador, worked only on the 5.3-inch phablet and…
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the bigger brother of the Galaxy Note smartphone, and as you can deduct from its name, it's a 10.1 tablet that features a pressure sensitive S-pen with much higher accuracy than your regular “capacitive stylus”, just like the original Galaxy Note and the upcoming Galaxy Note 2.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 was supposed to arrive in June but it got delayed, apparently to put the same Exynos 4 Quad processor in it that the Galaxy S3 has as well. The quad core processor is a welcome addition because the Galaxy Note 10.1 seems to have a more advanced multi-tasking system, that allows you to use at least 2 apps at once. This should make it easier to draw something after a certain model, or use it for work, where you need to share data between applications.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 commercial that has just been leaked shows this advanced multi-tasking system, and how it can be used for work and business presentations. The commercial is clearly addressed to business oriented people, even though I think the tablet should focus a lot more on people who like drawing, because it would probably resonate more with that target market.
It should show how the Galaxy Note 10.1 is in a class of its own when it comes to drawing, compared to the iPad for example, thanks to its pressure sensitive pen and active digitizer, that were developed in partnership with Wacom. But perhaps this is not going to be Samsung's one and only ad for the Galaxy Note 10.1, and we'll see more of them targeting artistic people in the future.
We still don't know when this tablet will be available, but the launch should happen before the announcement of the Galaxy Note 2 on August 15th.
