Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Launching This Month

The Samsung Galaxy Note might confuse some people as to whether it’s a phone or a tablet, but there’s no question about the identity of the new Galaxy Note 10.1.

Samsung revealed today that the 3G- and Wi-Fi-enabled Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, first introduced at Mobile World Congress in February, will be available globally this month. The company will also launch a 4G LTE version, but availability dates and pricing for any of the models were not announced at this time.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device sports a 10.1-inch, 1,280×800-pixel display with a multiscreen feature that lets you work in two apps simultaneously.

Like its smaller smartphone sibling, it comes with a stylus (dubbed the S Pen) that lets you take handwritten notes, sketch doodles and more. It also comes preloaded with a number of apps designed to work with the S Pen, including S Note, Polaris Office and Adobe Photoshop Touch. These apps will automatically launch once you remove the stylus from its holder.

In addition to the Galaxy Note 10.1 launch, Samsung is expected to reveal the next version of the Galaxy Note at an event in New York on August 15. AllThingsD’s Lauren Goode will be in attendance, so be sure to check back then for all the news.
