The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet will be available in Cleveland area Verizon stores on Thursday, March 7, and also available for online orders on Verizon.com throughout the US, according to Verizon's announcement emailed to journalists on March 5. This is a full-size tablet with a screen that measures 10.1 inches diagonally, approximately the same size as the full-sized iPad. This article covering the smaller Note 8.0 includes a photo of Note 10.1 with the S Pen.
We had an advanced look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 during a visit to Singapore and liked using the S Pen, a light pen that writes on the tablet by emitting a beam of light. The S Pen eases the processes of taking notes, drawing, and selecting small items on the tablet.
The Note 10.1 looks good. It offers a split screen function: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is able to display two screen images simultaneously, something we haven't seen on most tablets yet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is designed to work with Samsung's S Pen, providing users more flexibility in drawing and writing with a finer tip than the finger or keyboard has provided to us the past.
Samsung offers Smart Remote capability within the Note 10.1: The tablet functions as a universal remote control, allowing you to change channels from the tablet.
Price: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will cost $599.99 at Verizon this week. The tablet can be added to a Verizon Share Anything plan for $10 / month.
