Samsung Electronics Australia welcomes the GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)

Showcases Samsung tablet innovation, sophisticated style and versatile functionality for Australians 

SYDNEY, Australia – November 25, 2013 – Samsung Electronics Australia has today announced local pricing and availability of the GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), a new addition to Samsung’s flagship GALAXY Note mobile device range. The new GALAXY Note 10.1 is designed to offer Australians a sophisticated tablet in a fashionable design, with a range of features aimed at delivering an amazing content experience to Australians, on a high resolution display.

“The latest GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) represents a fantastic combination of stylish design and impressive engineering, all available in an ultra-thin (7.9mm) device. What really sets this product apart is the enhanced functionality of the S Pen and the great multitasking ability it can offer users.

Combined with a fantastic screen for an amazing multimedia experience, it is one of our most innovative tablets launched in Australia to date,” said Arno Lenior, Marketing Director – Samsung Electronics Australia.

“We’re very proud to build on the success of the first GALAXY Note 10.1, a tablet that created a different category for Samsung by offering Australians the ability to experience content in engaging ways through a great display, constantly updated and refreshed digital content and S Pen functionality,” Lenior added.

Amazing Viewing Experience, Enhanced Multitasking

The GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) delivers a 2,560 x 1600 resolution display. Combined with an intuitive user interface format, users can interact with highly detailed content using a range of software features.

With Multi Window functionality, users can run multiple windows of selected applications on the device screen at one time. # Multi Window works by using the device’s S Pen to drag and drop content between windows. Using the S Pen, the device’s Pen Window feature also allows users to draw a window on the screen to create a customised menu of shortcuts to specific applications, tools and other navigation options loaded onto the device.##

The GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) user interface can also display content in a magazine style format that can allow users to organise their favourite applications and content in an easy-to-use dashboard. Whether watching videos, reading e-books, or using the S Pen to draw and write, the GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) aims to provide an immersive and interactive media experience.

Design characteristics, like a slim form and textured leather-like back cover that includes stitched borders, have been engineered to inspire a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Improved S Pen and S Note Functionality  

The updated S Pen included with the GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) has superb responsiveness when using the device as compared to previous GALAXY Note 10.1 devices. The new S Pen and its enhanced features are built to produce versatile and creative input capabilities when writing and drawing on the device display.

Showcased in the recently released GALAXY Note 3, the GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) also includes exciting S Pen features such as Action Memo, Scrapbook, Screen Write and S Finder that helps make accessing and sharing information easy. Combined with the tablet’s 10.1 inch screen, the S Pen capabilities present users with creative freedom to draw, sketch and write content.

With Scrapbook capabilities, users can easily collect interesting content they create in an application, tool or find online using the S Pen and organise it into individualised scrapbook files that they can access at a later date. Building on the existing S Note feature, an improved version has been developed to be intuitive and easy to use with a new interface. With Easy Chart, hand-drawn visualisations of data can be transformed into formal charts and graphs.
