Galaxy Note 10.1 released August 16th competes with iPad [Sponsored Video]

Samsung has released the Galaxy note 10.1  on August 16th. The price starts at $499 for the basic model with 16 GB storage and $549 for the 32 GB model it also has a expandable with a memory slot. Reviews are already starting.

The Galaxy note is slated to compete directly with Apple’s iPad being close to their price points. The tablet also features a stylus pen to interact with apps on the screen. Another great feature that the iPad does not include is that you can run 2 apps at the same time side by side and interact with both.


The note will feature a Quad-core processor running at 1.4 Ghz with 2GB of ram and a 1280×800 resolution display. The screen on the note is 10.1 inches compared to the iPad’s 9.7 inch screen. So the note will be a little bigger than the current iPad and a lower resolution, the current iPad sports a 2048×1536 retina display. The Galaxy Note will also be packaged with Android Ice Cream 4.0.

I believe that the loss of resolution is made up for the quad core processor and side by side app multitasking features.

Here is a specification comparison side by side with the iPad.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 looks like a tablet that may actually compete with the iPad until Apple comes out with a newer version. With the Galaxy Note coming in with a $499 starting point, the price is exactly the same as the 16gb iPad 3 currently available at Apple. Both tablets have their ups and downs, the iPad 3 has a higher screen resolution and longer battery life while the Note has a quad-core processor and side by side app multitasking.
