It looks as though Samsung
is making a bid for the tablet with the longest name, hence the Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 Edition that's set to land on U.S. shores on October 10. If you're intrigued by it, you can place your pre-order for a Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 Edition beginning midnight tomorrow, September 27. It runs $550 for the 16GB model and $600 for the 32GB SKU.
"Last year’s launch of the Galaxy Note 10.1 introduced the integration of S Pen capabilities to the tablet category and created a new experience for consumers," said Travis Merrill, vice president of tablet marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "We continue to evolve the Galaxy Note experience with the new Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition. With premium software features and a sophisticated design, we’re delivering an exceptional and even more engaging tablet experience."
The 2014 Edition model boasts improved S Pen capabilities, a vibrant display with a 2560x1600 resolution, and updated Multi-Window functionality. It also now has a textured and stitched back that Samsung claims is both stylish and comfortable to hold, and features a thinner and lighter profile than before with smaller bezels so as not to shrink the screen size.
Underneath the hood, the 2014 tablet is powered by an Exynos 5420 quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
