Samsung had originally planned to launch the larger incarnation of their Galaxy Note earlier in the summer, but the device took a detour on its way to store shelves and re-emerged with a quad-core processor and built-in S Pen. Now US retailers are beginning to offer the device up for pre-order. J&R has the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for $499 and the 32GB model for $549, the only problem being a lack of clarity on an actual release date.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 has experience its share of false starts. It was initially unveiled back at Mobile World Congress in February and featured a slightly different spec sheet at the time. As an expected launch neared, rumors picked up that Samsung was redesigning the slate with quad-core processing in mind. The tablet’s chassis also got a slight makeover. Let’s just hope the Note 10.1 can make it to release this time without the folks behind the scenes deciding a few more upgrades are in order.

If it had a 1920×1080 screen resolution, I would buy it.
Disappointing. It should’ve packed a 1920×1080 display.
B&H also has it on their web site-
Thanks for the insight…
Sooo it’s a GalaxyTab 2 10.1 with an updated processor and an included S-pen? Ok sammy.
I view it as an Android tablet with a “Wacom” digitizer; so a self contained drawing screen that’s really affordable for what it does and quite portable, so something I can carry around with me and use as a digital sketch screen.
It’s the first tablet to truly offer what I’ve been wanting, which is Wacom integration. Now when I can get an Android tablet that has integrated Wacom tech that’s as good as my Cintiq, I’ll be one happy mofo.
That’s the beauty of Android, everyone can get exactly what they want! :D
Make it without Touchwiz and you can have my money. I’m not paying top dollar for something that’s guaranteed to have massive update delays.
1 or 2GB of RAM?
