Today Samsung officially unveils its new Galaxy Note 10.1, which will go on sale tomorrow. The tablet is priced to compete with other high-end tablets: the 16GB version will cost you $499, while the 32GB device will cost $549. Last week, Ars got some hands-on time with the Android-based 10-inch tablet that comes with a stylus for note-taking.
It’s a bigger version of the Galaxy Note smartphone, but with a couple of extra bells and whistles and a lot more processing power. We’ll bring you an in-depth review soon, but let’s take a quick look at what Samsung told us is "going to be [its] hero tablet in 2012."
Entertainment-only tablets are so two years ago
As Ars reported earlier this month, Samsung revealed details about the Note 10.1 that showed a tablet with a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and WiFi and 3G options, although it was originally revealed in February with lesser specs—a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB/32GB/64GB configurations. The 3G and 64GB versions of the tablet won't be available at launch, but company representatives noted that the existing tablets can be upgraded via the included memory card slot.
