I think that the companies are now focusing more on tablets. I don’t know why but it is true that people, especially tech-savvy people are more inclined to buying a tablet instead of a computer or a laptop. So what else do I need to say. Let,s get to the topic. Samsung’s most awaited smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has finally been unveiled. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 would probably change the tides in the tablet market and give the market-dominating iPad a tough competition. Just about a month back, Microsoft launched Surface tablets to get into the tablet market and now its Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to rock the market.
South Korea’s giant Samsung has finally unveiled its most awaited smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a super-size version of its predecessor Galaxy Note smartphone. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is twice as wide as its predecessor and is nearly of the size of a tablet. The release comes as Samsung is making its position strong in the tablet market, which is dominated by Apple’s iPad. This would only add fuel to the battle as the two technology giants are already engaged in a legal war over patent infringements.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is powered by Google’s Android 4.0.3 OS and features a big touchscreen which around 10.1 inches diagonally, considerably twice the size of the previous Galaxy Note. Galaxy Note came with a stylus and so Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 too comes with a stylus known as “S pen” to write notes and draw on the screen with much ease. An advanced feature too has been included. The new version allows users to split the screen in half to view two programs at once. The new version is much faster and you can run multiple applications faster as Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 comes equipped with a quad-core processor.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is already on sale in Germany and the United Arab Emirates. Samsung launched Galaxy Note in November, a device which was an amalgamation of its flagship product Galaxy S smartphones and the Galaxy tablets. So the new tablet, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is apparently launched aiming at giving Apple’s market-leading iPad a tough competition.
The new Galaxy Note is practically a new tablet PC that comes with a stylus pen, in which the iPad lacks big time. Moreover, Samsung has been concentrating more on expanding the range of stylus-equipped mobile devices to compete better against its US rival, which has not released any such products till date.
Samsung and Apple are already engaged in a bitter court battle in 10 countries worldwide over patents for smartphones and tablet computers. At a recent major hearing in California, Apple is seeking more than $2.5 billion after accusing the South Korean giant of infringing patents. Samsung, on the other hand, denies this and counter-charges that Apple has infringed its patents for wireless communication.
Let’s not get more into the legal issues of the two tech giants. What we should concentrate more on is the fact that we are getting more and more tablets and smartphones to enjoy as the giants are rolling out new and better devices.
With Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 10.1, Apple faces another possible killer. The specs in most aspects are much in favor to the Android device, but still can it dethrone the king ???
