S Pen support, all the screen real estate you could ever need, record-breaking pixel density (that’s right, higher than Retina Displays), quad-core power a la 2014, massive battery, up-to-date software and high-quality cameras. What’s not to like at Samsung’s newest tablet, aptly named Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition?
Well, pricing might be a bit of an inconvenience, as the “cheapest” configuration of the new GNote 10.1 goes for a whopping $550. And that’s with a measly 16 GB of on-board storage, so you’ll still have to add a few bucks for a microSD card.
But hey, you can’t party like it’s 2014 and spend money like it’s 2012. Also on the plus side, the tablet is to go on sale in just two weeks (i.e. on October 10), with an array of retailers kicking pre-orders into gear September 27, which just happens to be a few hours away.
No words on a 4G LTE-enabled model headed for any of America’s major carriers yet, but we’re pretty sure such a high-speed slate is incoming and Santa Claus will be able to fill your stockings with it this holiday season… provided he can afford it.
What else? Oh, yeah, in an effort to make up for pricing the 10-inch GNote so damn high, Samsung throws in a few freebies with every purchase, namely 50 GB of Dropbox storage and subscriptions for services like Hulu Plus and Boingo hotspots, plus the New York Times and Bloomberg Businessweek. I know, you’d have rather they just cut the starting price with 20 or 30 bucks, but what can you do?
