With the Galaxy Note 10.1 slated for a global release this fall, it seems that the South Korean tech giant is gearing up to oust its rivals.
We give you our pick of the top 5 features that will surely have the 10.1-inch phablet singing all the way to the bank.
Galaxy Note 10.1 USP is possibly its stylus or S-Pen that makes the device stand out from the crowd. The S-Pen allows users to navigate through the Android Interface as well as to draw or write with the help of certain apps. What's more, the back of the stylus also acts as an eraser!
Moreover, as seen with its forerunner - the Galaxy Note - the S-Pen can be used to create real art. While the Galaxy Note's 5.3-inch display limits the usage of the S-Pen as an art tool, the stylus may be put to better and enhanced use on the larger 10.1-inch screen of the Galaxy Note 10.1.
In tandem with the right apps, the Galaxy Note 10.1 with its nifty stylus can be used as a fully-functional graphics tablet. However, the phablet is unlikely to replace the existing professional graphic tablets that professional artists use. Additionally, the Note 10.1 with its gamut of features may be a perfect buy for up-and-coming artists and can also be used for light professional work
This feature allows the user to split the screen in two and run two apps simultaneously. The 10.1-inch screen will play an important role here, making it easier for the user to navigate two apps parallely without stressing the eyes. However, currently limited apps that are compatible with this feature are available.
Another standout feature of the Note 10.1 is the option to expand the memory to a whopping 64 GB, giving it an edge over Apple's iPad.
The Polaris Office feature offers flexibility to users allowing them to create, view, and edit Microsoft Word, Excel documents, as well as PowerPoint presentations even when on the move.
Smart Remote App
The Note 10.1 can also act as a universal remote control for entertainment devices like TV's and media players.
With the intuitive interface, the user will not have to scroll through channel guides to find favorite shows. This interface can be personalized to the user's preference and with just a tap the user can change the channel.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is expected to hit the shelves by month end. No information is available on the pricing; however, rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be set you back by $400 to $500.
