Samsung just introduced the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE in Korea. The new tablet is available through three different wireless carriers and it features a service called VoLTE (voice over LTE), where standard phone calls can be transmitted over the LTE network.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 features a multi-window format that enables the user to view two windows at the same time, Air View that lets you get a broader view of files or photos, and Easy Clip lets users draw on the screen with an S stylus.
Although this tablet is exclusively sold in Korea right now, it’s expected that the tablet will be available in other countries at the end of the year.
This new tablet may provide a little more competition for Apple’s iPad but not much. Samsung’s sales for their tablet lineup have been less than stellar and unless they have a few surprises up their sleeves, it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon. Compared to the iPad, the Note 10.1 LTE has poor resolution. It has a 10.1 PLS display that runs 1280 by 800 pixel resolution. Apple has a 9.7 inch IPS panel, with a display of 1536 x 2040 pixels.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE also features the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
The tablet wars between Samsung and Apple are not over. Although it’s evident that Samsung will never be on the same level as Apple when it comes to successful sales, it’s evident that they’re still bringing in a little competition. People who want to purchase a tablet that’s not the Apple iPad, or who would like to work with something that’s a little more advanced, the Galaxy Not 10.1 LTE may be one option to consider. In the next few months, it will be interesting to see how the new Galaxy LTE tablet sells next to the iPad 4.
