Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 officially a real tablet that makes sense

We knew that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was imminent, but Samsung still surprised us with software tools that make a stronger case than before for the S-Pen stylus.

BARCELONA, Spain--If you, like me, are still trying to figure out what the Samsung Galaxy Note with its S-Pen stylus is really for, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is refreshingly simple as a large slate with a clear purpose.

Leaked before its official announcement at Mobile World Congress, the Galaxy Note 10.1 has the potential to offer a true tablet experience that goes beyond the usual.

That throwback S-Pen stylus has finally found a calling, thanks to improved "pen" hardware and apps that, at least in my demo, seemed carefully considered (I'll know even more after a hands-on.)

With Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, two cameras, support for HD video, and a dual-core processor, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also offers solid specifications and features. You can read all about the new apps and other specs in this Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 photo tour.
