The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 slate is the tablet cousin of the popular Samsung Galaxy Note Android smartphone, which some people call a ‘phablet’ due to its large size with a 5.3-inch screen. Like the Galaxy Note, the new tablet will have an s-pen stylus and the stylus SDK.
Hitting the tablet market with the new version of Android, the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 both the 7 inch and 10.1 inch tablets will feature a 1 GHz dual core processor, rear and front facing secondary cameras, and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity options.
The 10.1 tablet has a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels but not an OLED screen. The CPU is a dual core 1 GHz, 1 GB RAM and a VGA front camera, in addition to a 3 MP, rear camera. All the tablets come in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB models with a microSD card up to 32 GB.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will be launched this year in March starting with UK. The release dates for other regions are not immediately known, but after the MWC 2012 starts, things will get clearer. Prices of the tablet models are also yet to be announced.
Among the slew of gadgets, Samsung is also launching the Galaxy Beam equipped with a built-in projector that can project an image into screen up to 50 inches. However, it will be running on Android 2.3 and will come with 8 GB RAM and 1 GHz dual core CPU.
