Samsung Galaxy Note 800 (Note 10.1) Launched In India For Rs.39,990

Do you still remember the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1? Yes, we are talking about the same Android powered tablet, which was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 in Barcelona. This tablet was not released in any of the markets, since the manufacturer wanted to make some changes before launching it globally. Earlier this month, Samsung re-announced the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with updated features and specs.

This tablet is already available for purchase in the US. Samsung recently went ahead and launched this device as the Galaxy Tab 800 in India. The company is already known for changing the name of its tablets before selling it in India. Previously, Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 in India as the Galaxy Tab 730 and 750 respectively.

Mr. Ranjit Yadav, Country Head, Samsung Mobile and IT, said:
“India is one of the first 10 markets in the world where the Galaxy Note 800 is being launched. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 800, Samsung provides a unique user experience that goes beyond passive content consumption to a new world of productivity, active creation and personalized communications. While the S pen offers both active content creation and passive content creation, the Multi screen capability finally enables true multitasking. I expect this device to in many ways to fuel the growth of the tablet market in India and help us further strengthen our market leadership in the tablet market here in India.”

Samsung Galaxy Note 800 features a 10.1 inch TFT display, sporting a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS, Samsung TouchWiz Nature UX, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 3G Connectivity, 5 megapixel rear camera with LED Flash, Full HD (1080p) video recording and playback, 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and much more.

Other features include a 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 4.0, S-Pen stylus, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, MicroSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory, Google Play Store, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, S Note, S Planner, Adobe Photoshop Touch, Samsung Kies, Samsung Hub, Samsung ChatOn, GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi Direct, IR LED and a 7,000 mAh Li-ion battery.

Samsung Galaxy Note 800 comes preloaded with the Adobe Photoshop Touch, which allows you to control the brush size and opacity by just adjusting the pressure of the pen on the screen. This device also offers the Pop up Play feature which was first seen on the Galaxy S III smartphone along with the added functionality of resizing the video window. Samsung Galaxy Note 800 comes with a price-tag of Rs.39,990 (approx. $720).

Samsung Unveils The Galaxy Note 10.1 U.S Pricing and Release Date

As expected, Samsung has unveiled its latest tablet — the Galaxy Note 10.1 — at an event in the United States. The Note 10.1 was originally announced at Mobile World Congress this year, but packed mediocre specs. The Korean company never really released it, and instead silently worked on updating the tablet’s internals.

The new and updated Galaxy Note 10.1 packs in a 10.1-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 1280*800. Internally, the tablet is powered by the quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 2GB of RAM, and an ARM Mali-400MP4 GPU. Other specs of the tablet include a 5MP snapper at the back, a 1.9MP front camera, microSD card slot, miniUSB port, an IR port, a beefy 7000mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, and a Galaxy Note like S-Pen stylus. The tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, but Samsung will update it to Jelly Bean sooner than later.

“Samsung’s GALAXY Note 10.1, with its pressure-sensitive S Pen, truly unleashes the power of Adobe Photoshop Touch and provides a great tool for creative expression,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president products, Creative Media Solutions, Adobe. “More than ever, people around the world want to create, wherever and whenever inspiration strikes. We look forward to seeing what they imagine with the S Pen and Photoshop Touch.”

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will come with an optimized version of Adobe Photoshop Touch, which is aimed to take advantage of the tablet’s S-Pen input. Thankfully, Samsung has priced the Note 10.1 sensibly with the 16GB Wi-Fi only variant of the tablet retailing for $499, while the 32GB version will set users back by $549. The tablet will also be available since tomorrow across all the U.S. authorized retailers including Best Buy, Amazon, Tiger Direct and Fry’s.


Samsung Finally Unveils The Updated Galaxy Note 10.1

Surprise surprise! Samsung has gone ahead and officially re-announced the new Galaxy Note 10.1. The updated Galaxy Note 10.1 was widely expected to be announced at the upcoming August 15th event from Samsung, but it looks like the Korean company let the ‘Note’ early from the bag.

The updated Note 10.1 packs in a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos SoC along with an ARM Mali-400MP4 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a 10.1-inch screen with a disappointingly low 1280*800 resolution, and a beefy 7000mAh battery, all inside a thin 8.9mm body. Like the Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1 also comes with an S-Pen that can come useful for taking quick notes. The Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with Sammy’s TouchWIZ UI joining the party with some bloat and features like Live Panel, AllShare etc.

The press release from Samsung states that the company expects to sell the Wi-Fi only and 3G variants of the Note 10.1 effective immediately in the United States, United Kingdom, Korea and Germany. The LTE variant of the tablet is expected to land later this year. The company has not announced the pricing of the tablet, but will presumably do so at its event on August 15th.

The resolution of the 10.1-inch screen of the Note is a real disappointment. With the Transformer Infinity and other tablets packing in 1920*1080 resolution or higher, the resolution of Note 10.1 looks downright awful. Hopefully, Samsung will price the tablet competitively to make up for the poor screen resolution.

Updated Galaxy Note 10.1 With Quad-Core CPU And 2GB RAM Uncovered

Earlier this year, Samsung announced a bigger variant of the Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1. As its name suggests, the Note 10.1 packs a 10.1-inch screen, and was powered by a dual-core processor. Compared to the new iPad or even the Nexus 7, the Note 10.1 seemed downright weak and over-priced.

As days and weeks passed by, Samsung realized its mistake and silently started working on a better and updated version of the Note 10.1. While the Korean company has not announced anything officially, rumors and leaks provide more than enough evidence that the company should soon be releasing a more powerful Note 10.1.

Now, it looks like The Brave Post has managed to get his hands on the updated Note 10.1 that packs in a much more powerful 1.4GHz Quad-Core SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP snapper, and the S-Pen, along with HSPA+ support. The updated Note also seems to have the ability to act as a speakerphone to your existing smartphone.

It looks like Samsung is all set to unveil the new and updated Galaxy Note 10.1 at its upcoming August 15th event.

Samsung Unveils The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1; It’s a Bigger Version Of The Galaxy Note!

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.
