Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet up for pre-order (again)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet with a 10.1 inch display, a quad-core processor, Android 4.0 operating system, a capacitive touchscreen and an active digitizer and digital pen for writing or drawing.

It’s basically the larger, tablet-style sibling to the 5 inch Galaxy Note smartphone.

First introduced in February, it looked like the Galaxy Note 10. 1 was almost ready to ship when it went up for pre-order last month. Then Amazon removed the listing.

Now the Galaxy Note 10.1 is up for pre-order again, this time from J&R and a few other retailers. They’re charging about $550 for a 32GB version.

There’s also a cheaper 16GB model available for $499.99.

Update: J&R has removed the product listings, which may have been posted a little prematurely. 

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The Galaxy Note 10.1 has a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.4 GHz Samsung Exynos quad-core processor, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.

It has 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear camera.

The tablet measures 10.1″ x 6.9″ x 0.35″ and weighs about 1.3 pounds.

While the quad-core CPU alone is enough to make the Galaxy Note 10.1 stand out in a crowded room, what really makes the tablet special is the S-Pen functionality which lets you use the included digital pen with your tablet, although you can also use your fingers.

thanks Paul!

    gone from – the rest don’t seem as reliable

      It’s still at J&R… my link was just broken. It’s fixed now.

    I wonder how long before it gets Jelly Bean. Also, no mention of an infrared port which I was really looking forward to. I guess we’ll have to get a lower end tablet to get it? That doesn’t make much sense.

    I still don’t get why Samsung is using a 1280×800 panel wouldn’t 1920×1200 be more usefull on a tab just like the Acer A700 and Asus TF700?

    First up on Amazon, then removed. Then up on J&R, then removed. And now up on B&H (with a ‘Tab 2’ URL, but the product described is the Note 10.1)
