KOREAN ELECTRONICS GIANT Samsung has announced that it will start shipping its latest tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, in the UK later this month.
Unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is essentially a larger version of Samsung's similarly named smartphone, touting a 10.1in 1280x800 display and support for a stylus. Improving on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the device also features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, a 7000mAh battery and either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.
It also has a number of unique software features pre-loaded, including Samsung's ChatOn instant messenging service, Adobe Photoshop Touch and Samsung Allshare Play.
Simon Stanford, VP of Samsung's Telecommunications & Networks Division for the UK and Ireland said, "Following the success of the very first Galaxy Note which we launched at the end of last year, we're delighted that our UK customers will now be able to experience the evolution of this device for themselves. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a product we are very excited about and will offer our customers a new way to use and experience a tablet device.
"As well as being able to consume content such as videos, photos, document and the Internet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also gives them the power to produce, create and customise that same content - something they won't get from any other product on the market."
Samsung hasn't yet announced a release date or pricing. µ
