I recently took the plunge and got the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and found it to be a gadget that suits my hectic travel lifestyle. Always on the go, this tool turned out to be a nice companion on the long hauls.
With the Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung has stepped firmly into tablet territory. Like the Galaxy Note, Samsung’s smartphone-tablet hybrid, this newest product includes a stylus, or what Samsung refers to as the “S Pen.” The original Galaxy Note was known for its unconventional dimensions, which struck some people as a too-big smartphone and others as a too-small tablet. Now, it really is just right.
The tablet measures 10.3 x 7.1 inches, with a 10.1-inch display and resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It’s available with either 16 or 32 GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot to add up to 64 GB more. The processor is Samsung’s most powerful for a tablet, a 1.4 GHz quad core. At 1.32 lbs., the Galaxy Note 10.1 is lighter than Apple’s iPad. The device will run Android’s 4.0 operating system (“Ice Cream Sandwich”), which Samsung says will be upgraded to version 4.1 (“Jelly Bean”) later this year. Models sold in the U.S. will connect to the Internet by Wi-Fi. So what’s different? With the Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung is banking on consumers who favor having a stylus as a digital extension of real pen and paper.
So anyway, I was loving my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and having a great time travelling with it, and then I heard the news.. Oh no .. I had bought mine too soon! Now is the best time to buy it because for a super short period (now till 15th September only) Celcom’s giving it away at RM1388. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is offered at this price, with any Celcom First Data and this deal is valid from now until 15th September 2012.
Not only that, there’s an additional RM120 rebate when you sign up along with free subscriptions to The Star ePaper for 6 months. If I had known this earlier I would have waited just a wee while longer, to buy my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 !!
