When it comes to touchscreen gadgets, they say the bigger the better. Heeding this notion, Samsung announced the all new Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 yesterday.
You may remember that they launched the original Note not too long ago, with a screen so large that it earned its name as a “phonelet” or a “phablet”. Because consumers weren’t accustomed to such a huge screen (with Apple’s iPhone as a basis of comparison), it almost seem ridiculous at first. Needless to say, all the hating came to a halt when it was reported that over 5 million units of the original Note have been sold worldwide.
Now, a successor to the original Note, the Android-based Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is all set to take the tech world by storm again. How is it different from the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1?
It seems that this newer Note is a refreshing upgrade from the Tab. The specs have been souped up to include a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. And if that doesn’t already make it stand out by miles (we know how important specs changes are), it also comes with its own stylus.
With the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1, users will also be able to take multitasking to a whole new level. The ability to run certain apps side-by-side on the screen totally wins all of our votes. Or at least from what it looks like from the demo video:

Floating screen, split screen, multiple apps – this must be the truest meaning of multitasking. To be honest, it’s looking good so far from what we’ve seen. But until we get our hands on a unit, there’s nothing much to say. Yet.
What we can say, however, is that we can’t wait to “meet” it!
