Good news continues, Yesterday Samsung Company announced at an event in New York that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet will go on sale Aug. 16. Today the company's new Tablet Galaxy Note 10.1 officially listed in the U.S.

In fact, Galaxy Note the first is a 5.3 inches smart phones, because of its size ranged between smartphones and tablet PCs, dubbed the "Phablet (Phablet = phone + the tablet).  Galaxy Note 10.1 is not a cellphone, but compared with the Galaxy Note with a smaller body, version 10.1 also equipped with a pressure-sensitive stylus, called S Pen.

Things get interesting once you start using the S Pen.

This includes S Note, S Planner, Crayon Physics, Photoshop Touch and Polaris Office.

It also has a 5 million pixel camera and a 1.9 million pixel front camera.

Galaxy Note 10.1 also provides the form of a floating window to play the video, function as “Pop up the Play". This feature first appeared on Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone. But on Galaxy Note 10.1, the user can adjust the size of the floating window.

For now, and for most people, the iPad is still the better buy. The main reason is that there's much more, and better, third-party software available for it. But the Galaxy Note shows that the pressure is building on the iPad, and Apple will have to work if it wants to maintain its lead. So whether people are willing to pay a premium for a stylus and a few extra apps remains to be seen.
