In the world of tablets, the iPad family gets the most press coverage. Because the Android tablet world has tablets from many providers, sometimes the top tablets may not be as obvious. Today I want to introduce you to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition as it delivers one of the best 10″ Android tablets available today.
One important item to note is that the current tablets in this family are WiFi only. If you need a mobile data connection, you’ll either have to wait and see if Samsung releases new models or explore other tablets.
What does jump out to me? The screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels is a huge increase from the Note tablets released a year ago. In the world of iPad, it would be called a Retina display. The pixel density here is more or less the same at 299 pixels per inch.
A huge difference is the inclusion of the S Pen that makes it easier for you to “write” on screen. As a die-hard user of Wacom’s pen-based tablets, the idea of having the option to use a stylus is a big plus in my mind.
As you look at size, battery life, sound and the other technical specifications, you’ll find they are all competitive with the other top tablets on the market. Unlike the iPads, the Galaxy Note 10.1 does allow you to insert a MicroSD card to increase the built-in (16 or 32 GB) storage by as much as 64 more GB depending on the card you select.
I encourage you all to look over the full feature list to determine if this is a tablet that meets your needs. I know I would be really happy if Santa would bring one to the Cave Creek Geek!
