Samsung has taken a very innovative approach to try and cater every customer in the market. The company’s approach includes releasing one model and then releasing variations of that same model. Following the launch of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (7-inch) and Tab 3 8.0 (8-inch), the company has announced the launch of Tab 3 10.1 (10.1-inch). This particular Tab also comes in three different models that further try to please its many customers in the market. One model is basic Wi-Fi and does not offer any GSM support; the second model offers 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi support, while the third model offers 2G, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. This approach allows users to spend on what they need.

 

The Tab 3 10.1 is named after the 10.1-inch screen that is offered on the device. The device comes with the same resolution as its 8-inch counterpart, which reduces its ppi density to 149 ppi. The tablet comes in the same polycarbonate that is found on the Galaxy phones and has a thick white bezel on the front. The screen has a hardware home button flanked by two capacitive buttons for Back and Menu. In landscape mode, the top of the device has the speaker and the mic. There is nothing else on the front. The sides have a metal band and also various ports including the volume rocker, microSD card slot and the charging port. The back of the device has the Samsung logo above which the rear camera is placed.

 

The company has added certain extra features in the 10.1 inch but has also slashed a bunch of high-end features. All three models will be available with Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean that will be customized with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX UI. The device will be powered by 1.6 GHz dual core Atom processor provided by Intel. It will offer 1 GB RAM.

 

The Tab 3 10.1 will come with two different storage capacities 16 GB and 32 GB, which can be further expanded by 64 GB. The device also offers both rear and front cameras but has reduced the MPs offered in the rear camera to 3MP, while the front has a 1.3 MP camera. The device comes with a non-removable 6800 mAh battery. The company has also added a bunch of apps that makes the device more user friendly such as Samsung Hub, Samsung Kies, Samsung Kies Air, Samsung ChatON, TV-Out (enables users to connect the tab to the TV), etc.

 

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet computer designed and manufactured by Samsung. It features a 10.1-inch screen and is marketed as a platform for multimedia consumption including movies, music, and web browsing. The Note 10.1 also features the use of a stylus named the S-Pen. The stylus is meant to be used as an input device for sketching and note-taking. The Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0. The stylus and the tablet work seamlessly together and also have a palm rejection software. The palm rejection software makes sure to reject any other body parts when the stylus is connected to the screen, enabling people to place their hand on the tablet as they write. Another new feature that was launched with the tablet was the Multiscreen option. The multiscreen feature allows the user to open and work on two apps simultaneously. However, it is currently limited to only six apps (S Note, Polaris Office, Video Player, gallery, Email, and the Android 4.0 browser) that can be opened side-by-side.

 

The Note 10.1 is available with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB storage capacity. The models are further bifurcated under Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi and 3G, as well as Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE. The tablet houses1.4 GHz Quad-core Cortex-A9 processor with 2 GB RAM, working seamlessly without any lag. The Note 10.1 offers 5 MP autofocus rear camera and a 1.9 MP front camera for video calling. The tablet also houses a powerful 7000 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of approximately 33 hours. It also offers a variety of features including IR Blaster, which allows the tablet to become into a fully-functional remote control.
