The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an Android tablet with a 10.1 inch display and a digital pen which you can use to draw or write on the screen using apps designed to work with the Samsung S-Pen software. The company introduced the new tablet at Mobile World Congress this week, and now it looks like the tablet may be on its way to the US.
Before any device with wireless communications support can go on sale in the US, it has to pass through the Federal Communications Commission, and this week a new 10 inch Samsung tablet showed up at the FCC website.
The folks at Wireless Goodness did a little digging and made a convincing case that we’re looking at the backside of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, rather than the other new 10 inch tablet from Samsung: The Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1).
The two tablets actually look a lot alike, with the key difference being that the Galaxy Note has an active digitizer for use with a special digital pen while the Galaxy Tab does not.
Both tablets feature 1280 x 800 pixel PLS displays, 1.4 GHz dual core processors, and Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 also has a multi-screen feature that lets you view multiple apps side-by-side so that you can take notes in one while watching a movie or surfing the web in another. The tablet has 1GB of RAm, 16GB to 64GB of storage, measures 0.35 inches thick and weighs about 1.3 pounds.
