MWC: What Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1?


Even though we’re fairly certain that Samsung won’t be unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) at Mobile World Congress, it looks like the AMOLED-touting crew may have another surprise for us, and their calling it the Galaxy Note 10.1.

Are you a touch confused? You should be. I went hands on with the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note at CES earlier this year and I’ve also reviewed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet (photo above) as well. If we base our predictions solely on the naming scheme, the assumption then would be that the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet device, but it’ll make use of the same S Pen as the existing Galaxy Note.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is mentioned in the documentation for Samsung Developer Day at MWC 2012, as well as the S Pen SDK, the current Galaxy Note, the Wave 3, and the Wave Y. Should we then assume that, moving forward, anything with the “Note” moniker will do the capacitive stylus thing, whereas a Galaxy “Tab” would be a more conventional tablet? Or are the lines blurring between the two? Samsung certainly isn’t ruling out the extension of the S Pen to other products and the Galaxy Note 10.1 could represent the first addition to the family.
