Samsung release new Galaxy Note tablet
They’re still locked in a legal tussle with Apple, but Samsung have gone and snuck out a new tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1, which will initially go on sale in the USA today.
It’s priced in the same bracket as the iPad ($499 for the 16GB wi-fi version, and $549 for the 32GB) but is expandable with an external memory card and comes with a faster processor than the iPad, as well as a digital pen. On the down side, the Note’s screen resolution is less impressive than that of the iPad. Ah well.
Multi-tasking is a big sell, with the Android-powered Note able to run two applications at the same time, with the screen divided in half. One thing that won’t be seen on it is Adobe Flash Player, which has been pulled from the Google Play store. Adobe have said that they’ll be focusing all their energies on HTML5 instead from now on, although Flash Player is still alive and kicking on PCs.
