Samsung itself has seemed to drop a small bomb on us this morning by revealing, in a MWC invitation no less, that it will be debuting a product called the Galaxy Note 10.1. Now, this could just be a slip-up, but it is mentioned in the same line as the Galaxy Note 5.3 for an event in which developers will learn how to create beautiful apps for the S-Pen platform during Samsung’s Developer Day. Hmm…

The company revealed last month that it is considering bringing the S Pen to alternative form factors, so the Note 10.1 would fit right in.  A Samsung rep said, “I think a pen interface continues to make a lot of sense across a number of screen sizes, like the larger is more obvious of those. That’s about as specific as I can be without announcing a product.”

The Verge went on to discover that Samsung put out a call for an actor to portray someone using a Note 10.1 for “education, financial planning and art.”

What would the Note 10.1 look like? Imagine a thin, Tegra 3-powered S Pen-enabled tablet with a high-res screen and long battery life, running Ice Cream Sandwich. I’d have a bite of that.

    Sweet! Personally I want a 7 or 7.7 inch tablet with the S-Pen, ICS and a Super AMOLED Plus HD Display. Preferably something 500$ or less.

  • Deutschlaender

    please let this be true!

    also with tegra 3 and a microsd card slot (and ideally without touchwiz :P)!

    I’d sell my prime for the this then!

    writing with a stylus on a bigger screen make sense anyways!

    I’d rather not imagine it being Tegra 3 powered. I think history is about to repeat itself, and we’re going to find out just what a low-rent SoC Tegra 3 is compared to the upcoming TI and Samsung designs.

      It’s easy to say Tegra 3 is low rent and all that later, but at the moment it’s the fastest, most efficient thing ON THE MARKET. if you walk into a store right now, can you get anything better???

  • LongDongSilver

    Sweet, a 10.1 inch phone!

  • Peacenik

    So we are going back to the stylus crap?

    • Guy

      Not everyone is some mindless child buying a tablet so they can swipe and play angry birds. There are many things a fine stylus beats a fat finger at.

  • EvanKr

    Nice! Unfortunately, it will probably have Touchwiz, which is a pain in the @$$ to remove. Otherwise, excited!!!

  • Aiden

    Really I just bought a Galaxy Note -_-

  • user

    I AM SOLD!!!

    Considering that a large part of the N American baby boomer generation is aging and with with reduced eyesight this Galaxy Note 10.1 may be just the thing seniors will want.
