Samsung Introduces Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) at technology trade show IFA in Berlin. The new device comes in a new leather-effect rear casing edged with stitching and offers multitasking features as well as new uses for the S Pen stylus.

The S Pen 2.0 that comes with the Galaxy Note 10.1 offers a new Air Command wheel feature that contains shortcuts to applications and appears on the screen when a user pulls out the stylus or hovers the tip over the screen and presses the button on the side. In a handwritten memo, users can also call a written-down phone number, visit a URL or find a location on a map by drawing a box around the text and hitting the corresponding icon. Also on the Air Command wheel is the new Scrapbook app for saving snippets of text, pictures, web pages and other content.

The new tablet offers a Multi Window feature that divides the screen in half between two apps and also allows users to drag and drop content between the two applications or call up apps in a corner and send them back until needed. The new device will be available in 16GB, 32GB or 64GB models.
