Note, the new way
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a smart tablet from Samsung offering great multimedia experience on the go. It is a good learning hub and very useful to students as well. The S stylus pen helps perform detailed tasks with ease. The graphics supports many brilliant games for game lovers. The multi-window option helps user to do multiple tasks at the same time. It is priced little above the average tablets but sounds like a worthy device to buy because of its high end configuration.
In light of the recent ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and its ongoing litigation with Apple, it'd be hard to imagine that Samsung hasn't thought twice about its tablet strategy. Continually pushing out a revamped iteration of the flop before it (see: Galaxy Tab 2 10.1) has proven to be as ineffective as it is effortless, a sign of the times that just may have given birth to Samsung's latest flagship device, the Galaxy Note 10.1. It marks a shift from...
Pros: The Galaxy Note 10.1 is mostly fast and fluid, a testament to its top-notch processor and 2GB of onboard RAM. It's also handsome and well-designed, taking cues from the GS3. Samsung's S Pen has evolved into a sophisticated tool with exciting potential.
Cons: That said, the Note 10.1 feels like it may snap in half at any given moment, and its certainly one of the least-sturdy tablets on the market today. The 1200x800 display is a joke compared to its competitors, and really distracts if you're familiar with ni
Verdict: The Galaxy Note 10.1 is unique and stands out among a seemingly endless sea of competitors, though not always in a good way. Samsung has stepped back and reshaped its tablet strategy, now focusing on user experience rather than specs alone, and if y...

Overall: To all the previous reviewers who are comparing the price of this tablet with the american pricing of $499, let me clarify that the American version is a wifi only version which is not launched in India. Yes, even after that there would still be a difference, but not as much as Rs 13000. The Wifi and 3G model would be launched in USA for $599 and add to that the respective tax from a particular state, which comes to around $629 (approx and average). Convert that and the amount is approx Rs 34500. So the difference is just about 4000, which is mainly due to Governement Taxes and Import Duties not because Samsung wants to price it higher in India and lower in USA. They possibly cannot do that because that increases the chances of smuggling, and grey market sales. About the product, i just got one yesterday, its a good product individually if one doesn't comapre it to the iPad. iPad is an iconic device and has its core focus in place. I don't see any model disturbing that status in the near future, irrespective of the list of shortcomings that an iPad has (no bluetooth transfer, no mobile connectivity etc etc), coz it does its primary duty and i.e being a TABLET. Again not to take the credit away from Samsung, this is so far "their" best product in the tablet category. It has all the possible features, though i would have expected a better display at this price point. Voice Call though not practical for this segment, it nevertheless adds up as an option for hardcore bluetooth headset users. The selling point though, is the S pen and the respective applications. The S pen is surely a creative person's dream and it works like one. It has definitely come a long way from the Note, with smoother interface. My advice to buyers would be, do not exchange your iPad with the Note, and for new buyers, its a tough call. But if Voice calls and S pen is what one is looking at, then don't look back coz Note doesn't disappoint. And if display and ease of use is what one wants, its Apple all the way!
