We first saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 six months ago which is a long time in the mobile device industry, and in that half year the original Note 10.1 was beginning to look a bit less impressive compared to the competition.

So for those people who have been waiting a long time for the Galaxy Note 10.1, there are a couple of bits of good news: firstly the tablet will start to ship this month, and secondly Samsung have given the specification a boost since they announced it.

Just in case you have forgotten about the Galaxy Note 10.1, this is an Android 4.0 tablet with a 10.1" 1280 x 800 pixel display that comes in WiFi-only or 3G versions. Unlike most other tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a stylus (called the "S Pen") which makes it possible to have a more precise experience than you would have with a tablet that you just prodded with your finger.

Quite a few things have changed however.. the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 now sports a quad-core 1.4GHz processor instead of a dual-core one, the internal RAM has been doubled to 2GB from 1GB, the primary camera is now 5 megapixels instead of 3 megapixels and the front camera is now 1.9 megapixels instead of 0.3. The overall design has been tweaked cosmetically (making it marginally larger and heavier), and the Galaxy Note 10.1 will now be available in white as well as black.

All the usual Android features are here, so you can even use the Galaxy Note 10.1 as a massively oversized satellite navigation system (and it support GLONASS as well as GPS) but the main selling point is that this tablet is more about creating content than just browsing for it, and in that respect it challenges laptops as well as the usual tablet market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 should be available in the UK, US and Germany from this month, although prices are not finalised it does seem that the 16GB version will retail for around €650 including tax. Other regions should follow afterwards, with a LTE version for Korea also hitting retailers soon.
