Samsung might not be announcing the most anticipated Android handset of this year at MWC, the Galaxy S3, but the company did announce a newer and bigger brother of the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note 10.1.
If the Galaxy Note was a bigger version of the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a bigger version of the Galaxy Note itself. As its name suggests, the Note 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch WXGA screen, 1GB of RAM, a blazing fast Exynos 4210 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, an ARM-Mali 400-MP GPU, and 16/32/64GB of internal memory. There is also a huge 7000mAh battery on the Note 10.1, which makes sure that it easily lasts a day.
The Note 10.1 also comes with a S-Pen tucked neatly in one side of the tablet, that allows users to easily jot down notes on the tablet as if its a real ‘note’book. All the same S-Pen tricks that were valid on the Galaxy Note, are applicable on the Note 10.1 as well. The Note 10.1 runs on Ice Cream Sandwich, with TouchWIZ making sure to ruin all that goodness.
Samsung did not mention anything about the pricing or the availability of the Note 10.1, but the device should hopefully be available sometime in Q2 of 2012.
