MWC 2012: Samsung overview
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 hands-on
We got a chance to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in person. It uses the same screen as the other new 10.1-inch tablet (the Tab 2 10.1) but with a different digitizer to support S Pen.
The Note 10.1 is pretty cool, but its screen and back quickly became a fingerprint mess. Despite its size, the tablet has proper voice calling functionality.
The 3MP camera on the back shoots 1080p video and you get a front-facing camera for video calls too. The loudspeakers are placed on the left and right sides of the screen so you get proper stereo when watching a video.
We tried out the S Pen on the new Galaxy Note 10.1 and it felt a lot faster and more accurate than it is on the smaller model. It also senses different levels of pressure more accurately. One cool thing about it (for those who can't draw well) is that the tablet will recognize certain shapes (squares, circles, arrows, etc.) and will replace the one you drew with a better, straight version.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 also comes with Photoshop Touch for Android, which was quite cool. Oddly, it worked only with S Pen and wouldn't let us draw with our fingers.
Here's the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in action:
