iPad 2 Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet

Samsung has finally unveiled its new Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, one which is set to replace the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 as its high end flagship tablet and leaves us to believe that the Korean manufacturer might soon launch another top of the range tablet with a full HD+ screen resolution.

The device is essentially a bigger version of the Galaxy Note although you cannot make calls on it. The rest of the hardware configuration is like its smaller brother.

There's a 1.4GHz dual core processor with 1GB RAM, up to 64GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, Glonass, Wi-Fi, a 1280 x 800 resolution (albeit on a 10.1-inch screen) and the S-Pen.

Sadly though Samsung dropped the rear camera resolution to three megapixel while upping the front facing one to two megapixel.

A few apps are already installed to take advantage of the tablet's capabilities; these include the Adobe Photoshop Touch and Ideas as well as Formula Match and Shape Match.

For business users, Samsung has included Exchange ActiveSync, on-device encryption, Juniper Junos Pulse and Cisco VPN features.

The company has yet to say how much the device will sell for and when it will be available in the UK.
