The new Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet can be yours for a pretty steep £494.99 if you’re in the UK and willing to purchase one. This is made possible by the folks over at Expansys, a very well known third party retailer of all things mobile.
The Note 10.1 2014 Edition is thus almost £100 more expensive than the entry-level iPad Air (which will be available tomorrow). And the Samsung tablet doesn’t come with any additional storage or connectivity – like the £399 iPad Air it has 16 GB of space and is Wi-Fi-only. The only thing going for it compared to the iPad is the higher resolution screen – 2,560×1,600 versus 2,048×1,536. That makes it a very tough sell, except for people who are in love with the idea of using a stylus on a tablet, we assume.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition comes with a 10.1-inch 2,560×1,600 touchscreen, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and an 8,220 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
