The time has come that Samsung has made its Galaxy Note 10.1 official. It announced in a press release this morning that its 10.1-inch tablet will ship to the masses worldwide later this month. The tablet will be equipped with Samsung’s infamous S-Pen that allows users to take notes and easily make drawings through Samsung’s custom TouchWiz UI that also appeared on the Samsung Galaxy S III and other devices. Samsung will ship the Galaxy Note 10.1 in two variants —a Wi-Fi and a 3G model— with an LTE version shipping later this year. As for specs of the tablet, it includes a speedy 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.9-megapixel front-camera for video chatting, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a 10.1-inch (180-by-800) WXGA display. There are 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 definitely rocks some better specs than Samsung’s other 10-inch tablets. It also compliments Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note very well, and it offers an aggressive attack for a new Note line. In other Galaxy Note news, a 5.5-inch smartphone is expected to be announced by the company later this month in Barcelona. We will be live to cover the event. No pricing has been announced for the Note 10.1, but maybe we will hear more at this month’s launch event. In the mean time, Samsung posted the following video showing off the Galaxy Tab 10.1:
