Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 on sale August 16, 16GB for $499, 32GB for $549

Samsung announces Galaxy Note 10.1 price and availability

It's probably not that big of a surprise that Samsung has officially announced its new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. The tablet is what was expected--a 10.1-inch screen that features an S-Pen stylus for input. The tablet is Wi-Fi only and will be available tomorrow for $499 for the 16GB model or $549 for the 32GB model.


The device, as it sits, comes with only Android 4.0, although it is slated for an update to Jelly Bean later this year. It's powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core and 2GB of RAM. The screen seems a bit low-res coming in at only 1280×800 on a TFT display. The rear camera also seems a bit underwhelming, coming in at a mere 5MP with autofocus and a LED flash.

The front camera comes in at 1.9-megapixels, again a bit lower than expected. The device supports up to 64GB memory cards and has Bluteooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 support, though the latter requires an adapter. If this is a device that interests you, you can head over to Samsung's website tomorrow and purchase one.
