Thin Design and Fast Performance

This powerful tablet provides fast performance in a sleek design that’s comfortable to hold. It features Samsung’s most efficient processor for fast Web browsing and multitasking and longer battery life.

Take Handwritten Notes and More with the S Pen

Included with the Galaxy Note 10.1 is Samsung’s S Pen, which is a digital pen that allows you to jot down notes, phone numbers, search terms, contact information, and more right on the display. Samsung’s handwriting-to-text engine automatically converts your written notes to digital type. The S Pen offers precise control along with access to shortcuts to a wide range of S Pen functions via the Air Command feature.

Built into the Galaxy Note 10.1 is Samsung’s My Magazine feature, which you can personalize with your favorite news sources, celebrities, sports teams, musical artists, and Twitter streams. Access it from the home screen by simply swiping up. My Magazine provides an easy, convenient way to keep track of everything that’s important to you.

Multi Window Lets You View Two Apps at Once

With Samsung’s Multi Window feature, you can place two applications side by side and use them both at once. You can drag content from one app to the other, or even open the same app twice–handy if you’re writing two email messages at once, or you want to reference two websites side by side.

Functions As a Universal Remote Control

Watching television just got simpler, thanks to the Galaxy Note 10.1’s built-in IR blaster, which allows you to use the tablet as a universal remote control. The Samsung WatchON feature lets you type in your zip code and cable provider to browse and search current TV listings and get personalized recommendations based on your viewing history.

Read Books, Magazines, Textbooks, and More

Thanks to its vivid 10.1-inch display, the Galaxy Note 10.1 works wonderfully as an e-reader. Included with the tablet are 3 months of access to the New York Times’s digital newspaper, along with 12 months of access to Bloomberg Businessweek+ and 2 months of access to the magazine app Zinio. In addition, the tablet comes with 3 months of access to audiobooks from Audible.com.

    Better Than Expected I’ve had this Tablet for over a week now and have to say that I am blown out of the water by its performance and what you can do with it! To be fair, there were a few laggy areas when I first got it (day after launch) but those have since been cleaned up by 2 samsung updates. This thing is smokin fast now. I don’t really use the “My Magazine” app that people are complaining about so I don’t have an opinion on that one. But everything else that I use it for is amazing. I really enjoy the web browser that came with it too. I never use chrome or dolphin now.So far what has really blown me away is the split screen where you can have two apps open at the same time side by side. I really love this and do it often. Normally when I split, I have the tablet in portrait mode and have youtube in the top windowpane and the internet browser in the bottom windowpane. But on top of that in each windowpane can have multiple apps that you can switch with independently. I also love the fact…

    This tablet is not for everyone, but those it is for will be blown away This tablet has entirely streamlined my educational, professional, and personal productivity. I will preface this by saying I chose this tablet (as my very first tablet of any kind) after 5 WEEKS of research and hours and hours of reading the manual, watching video of reviews, unboxing, customization, how-to’s, tips and tricks, and specific software guides. I had the nexus 10 in my amazon shopping cart when I first came across this tablet. I will nowhere in this review compare this to an apple device- I have never and will never own one- personal preference, I wholeheartedly believe iOS is sufficient or ideal for a lot of people’s use, just not ever going to be for mine. As background, I am in an international DVM program whose laptop just crashed and all 600+gigs of my life were backed up but now only floating in cyberspace so my requirements were a little heady for a tablet-a) deal with extensive editing and review of PDFs, PPTs, DOCs, XLXS, etc 14-17hrs a day…

    Best Tablet I have ever owned, for a premium price.(Now support multiple users!) This is by far one of the nicest tablets I have ever owned, It’s fast, nice to look at, nice to hold, it doesn’t try to do your thinking for you when you don’t want it to, and it has a lot of features that you can’t find anywhere else. I just wanna say that this now support multiple users!! This is awesome and I’m so glad Samsung came through with this feature.Pros–Screen- Wonderful color representation and clarity, Eye candy.-S-pen- such a nice stylus, works like a pen, a tablet and stylus really belong together like this!-Speakers- Beautiful sound, surprisingly clear and crisp, just a pleasure to listen to. (watched the avengers a couple clicks below highest volume and it was definitely adequate)-Speed- One of the quickest tablets I’ve used, it has recently gotten an update that increases the speed of touch-wiz getting rid of any previous stuttering. The gpu in this is a beast capable of a lot of things that some of the next gen chips can’t do…
