Mid-way through the Apple vs Samsung intellectual properties trial, Samsung has launched its new tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1.
With both firms going head-to-head in the courtroom, the Galaxy Note 10.1 should go some way to bringing the battle back to where it belongs – in the tech market.
The new Android tablet features a screen which can measure 24 levels of pressure sensitivity as well as a stylus, as well as offering a new split-screen mode.
Apple vs Samsung
With Apple commanding a 69.6% share of the global tablet market in the second quarter, against Samsung’s 9.2% share, the launch of Galaxy Note 10.1 could be just the device to up the stakes.
Simon Stanford, of Samsung said:
“The Galaxy Note 10.1 takes productivity on a Note to a whole new level,”
“With a larger, fully utilisable screen and superior performance, it combines the intuitiveness of handwriting with all the versatility of digital content to let users be more productive across all of life’s demanding tasks – whether working, learning, or simply creating their own stories.”
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 specs
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is powered by an ARM v7-based quad-core chip running at 1.4GHz, with 2GB of memory included as standard, as well as 16GB of storage.
At the front it has a 1.9MP camera for video calls, with a 5MP camera at the rear. The split-screen mode feature applies to the following apps: Polaris Office, Samsung’s S Note software, Video player, Gallery, Email and the browser.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 utilises the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, with no news as to when an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available.
At a hefty price tag of around £435, users will definitely need to know that they are getting the most for their money before they invest in the Galaxy Note 10.1.
