Nearly 5 months after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 10.1 they’ve stated that the tablet with S-Pen stylus will be available globally this month. The specs have it coming Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich along with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX, 10.1-inch display (1280×800), 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 5MP camera and a 1.9MP front-facing camera. Samsung also highlighted the “S Pen Experience,” specifically noting the S Note, S Planner, My Story apps.
Samsung declared that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be “available globally in August,” but didn’t specifically say where in each country, or when. However, they did note that it “comes in three connectivity options: WiFi-only and WiFi-and-3G HSPA-Plus connectivity, which are both available at launch, and WiFi-and-LTE which will be available later this year.” So you can bet that all major big box retailers will carry this tablet, then later Rogers, Bell and TELUS could possibly release the LTE version.
Update: We’ve just heard from Samsung Canada about a release for our fine nation. Here’s the official statement, basically it’s coming to Canada “in the coming months.” So possibly we’ll only get the LTE model.
“We are excited to support the Global announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. More than ever, Samsung is committed to introducing innovative new products that deliver a choice of mobile experiences and devices. Earlier this year, with our carrier partners, Samsung established the first Galaxy Note, as a premium smartphone, which enabled users to capture, create and share content like never before. Now we are bringing the Note’s facility for productivity, content creation and personal expression to a tablet form factor. We look forward to sharing the Galaxy Note 10.1 timing and Canadian availability details in the coming months.”
