Samsung has just confirmedfor its now less-mysterious August 15 product launch in New York: the product in question is definitely a tablet.
CNET's invitation to the unveiling depicts an outline of a device with tablet dimensions in casual, artistic lines. That bolsters my belief that we'll be seeing a U.S. release of the, a full-fledged tablet that will make use of a stylus to interact with productivity and creativity tools. (Hence the doodles on the invitation.)
I first saw the Galaxy Note 10.1 at Mobile World Congress last February, and was impressed withto business and personal expression on a larger screen.
The stylus, which Samsung calls the S Pen, is pressure-sensitive and uses a button to control multiple functions. This version for the Galaxy Note 10.1 has its hard plastic "eraser" tip programmed to quickly erase mistakes.
Join CNET on August 15 for the big reveal. We'll be live in New York covering the event.
