Lead us into temptation Oh Galaxy Note 10.1!

By the time Samsung
Electronics, manufacturers of
Galaxy range of tablets, ran
through the features of its
latest Galaxy Note 10.1
launched in Lagos, mid-
week, many users who were
already having one brand of
tablets, notes and e-readers
or the other from
competition, were already
giving in to the temptation of
switching over.
Quite truly some quality time
and massive creativity were
utilised in making the device
and Samsung is displaying
the beauty with a lot of
swagger. It described the
device as new concept that
enhances productivity,
creativity and learning
Judging from the features,
the device could turn a user
from a passive consumer to
an active creator. From Note
taking to multi-tasking,
photo editing and drawing,
the new device gives business
professionals, creative
designers, students and even
the journalist some reason to
be confident in their jobs.
The two most unique
features of this device are
the split screen functionality
which gives room for
multitasking (writing or
surfing the net while
watching films for instance)
and the professional
handwriting functionality
which allows the stylus pen
to scribble on the screen
with ease.
The screen responds to your
fingers as usual, but also
works like a Wacom tablet
when you write with the
pressure-sensitive stylus.
That, really, is what no other
10inch tablet offers at the
When you remove the stylus
from the bottom of the Note
10.1, a shortcut bar appears
where you can launch,
Samsung’s S Note app or
others like web browser,
video player, email Gallery
and polaris office. All the
apps can be opened on the
screen simultaneously
without hassles. But the S
Note app appears the best
of all the extra apps
Samsung preloads on its
devices. It allows the user to
write notes, sketch and even
write formulas. The Text and
equations can afterwards be
converted to editable text.
The pen is highly responsive
and relatively comfortable to
use. Yet the regular standard
pen, also fits and even on
trial appeared better on the
screen than the capacitive
stylus. This means that losing
the stylus may not
incapacitate the user, after
The note runs on a fast
1.4GHz quad-core processor
and 2GB of RAM which
seems more than any what
other tablets possess. There’s
built-in GPS, Bluetooth and
also Wi-Fi direct for sharing
photos and other files with
compatible devices.
Another feature which give
the device some distinction is
the Smart Stay functionality.
When reading an article or
browsing the web for
instance, the Galaxy Note
10.1 detects the users face,
eyes and the screen will
remain on without
intelligently putting itself off
after some hours or minutes
as many tabs traditionally
The device was built with all
classes of people in mind.
For the business
professional, it allows for
frequent memos, detailed
documentation or meeting
presentations while
encouraging work on the
move. Incidentally everything
done on this Note can be
sync to the PC.
For the creative designer,
intuitive and creative thinker
as well as the artists and
digitizing professional, the
design software for mobile
use, gives a big leverage.
For Students, doing online
assignments, digital learning
social media and other
multimedia works are made
simple as a simple tap on the
note opens a world of
information to enrich
Yet the Journalist, has a
stake, taking advantage of
the ultimate performance of
the HSPA+21 and double
speed Wi-Fi which burns with
faster internet, downloads,
to report back to the office
no matter where. The device,
according to Samsung is
slightly above a N100.000.
Now, can you blame the
man who after the
presentation, vowed to give
away his other tab to his
grandmother in order to get
the new device?
