It has been leading up to this for a while now. The Samsung Galaxy Note II just turned 1 year old in the last week of August. The Galaxy Note 3 is finally here. Just like many expected. Samsung announced three new Galaxy products. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, The Galaxy Gear, and a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet
Looking for the next best thing is no longer a wish for many smart mobile users looking for the device that’ll do-it-all. Following a trend started with the Galaxy Note II, the Galaxy Note 10.1® features the advanced S Pen™stylus. Business professionals can take notes during meetings with handwriting-to-text capabilities, and drawing tools to jot down plans. Notes can be saved and shared over 4G LTE with coworkers and clients.
Students can use the multiscreen feature to view two apps at once by splitting the screen. For example, users can read a news article while taking notes or watch a video while replying with feedback. (Looking for a few of unique multitasking features using the Note? Check them out HERE.)
For photo editing, the Galaxy Note 10.1® runs Adobe® Photoshop® Touch. Combined with the S Pen™, building visual effects, such as layering, blending and filters, can be used by designers to show drafts or mock-ups to potential clients. Users can combine and manipulate images creatively with the S Pen™, then upload work to the cloud using 4G LTE to access their portfolio just about anywhere.
Watching television with a second screen has become second nature for many. For TV fans, the Galaxy Note 10.1® features the Smart Remote, powered by Peel, to turn the tablet into a universal remote control. The tablet can control an entire home entertainment system and even recommend programs.
It’s always a joy to receive nice surprises every now and then and recently Samsung was a bearer of great surprise as I found the gift of the Samsung BT S Pen.
It’s similar in size and shape to the company’s Galaxy S Pen Holder Kit, which serves as a sleeve for the standard-issue Note S Pen, but Bluetooth functionality, along with a microphone and tiny speaker, enable the lightweight plastic contraption to double as a wireless headset. (Hello? Can you hear me now?)
With three hours of talk time and 130 hours of standby, it weighs 21 grams, offers Bluetooth 3.0 compatibility and will work with Galaxy Note devices — you could use it as a headset with other bluetooth enabled gadgets such as the Samsung Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note 10.1 and the original Galaxy Note phablet too. No pricing is available yet, but as a cool TECHcessory, it’s a great tool to have on hand in case you need to transcribe notes while on a conference call.
Could you find yourself talking on the phone with the Samsung BT S Pen? Would you like to see it on store shelves soon?
Personalization. Productivity. Performance. Creativity
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is finally ready to take the stage here in the United States! Today’s launch event for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was a welcomed declaration of pomp & circumstance for the latest tech entry into the market. Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet such a huge hit in the tech community and beyond after it launched last year, and Samsung is clearly hoping that the Note formula will propel this new tablet into the big leagues.
Even designers got into the tech mix as Zac Posen shared his experience with the tablet & how he plans to continue using the Galaxy Note 10.1 as a creative tool in design. As reported last week, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will offer features beyond what normal tablet users are used to today. From multi-tasking on touch screens to eLearning on another level, I got the chance to experience the Galaxy Note 10.1 live and in person today during the launch event and boy was it amazing!
From the user interface to changing my face into a caricature cartoon, the event had tons of Samsung experts on hand to highlight the device as well as a classroom setting and arcade for Galaxy Note fun!
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 You can edit photos, create detailed illustrations & increase your productivity like never before. With the multiscreen function, watch videos or read articles on one screen while taking notes on the other – all on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for maximum performance.
