Yes, they have had many hot-selling devices, but in Samsung's expansive line of smartphones and tablets, none have been more blockbusting than the Samsung GALAXY Note. There were many reasons why consumers loved, it was the perfect-sized, not too large and not too small, it had top-notch performance and its S-Pen allowed users to write and draw freely on their device as if they were using a pen and paper.

It has already been a year since the original GALAXY Note was released and for Samsung that means unveiling something new. So today, Samsung Malaysia Electronics announced the availability of the new and improved (not to mention larger) GALAXY Note 10.1, which shares many of the well-loved features of its predecessor and new ones that will also change the way how consumers use tablets.

“The fast-paced nature of today's lifestyle demands the utmost efficiency and ingenuity in people to juggle various hats successfully.

“An extension of the GALAXY Note category, the new GALAXY Note 10.1 allows for immediate capture of ideas and their realization through sketching; thereby facilitating people's most natural way to be productive and creative. Built with advanced technology and enhanced features, this intuitive slate lends the power to produce, create and customize content seamlessly,” added Kwon.

Just an example of how the Multiscreen feature will help users do more than one thing at a time with ease

For those who constantly multitask, the GALAXY Note 10.1 has the Multiscreen feature, which eliminates the need to jump from one app to another. With this feature, users can utilize two different applications side-by-side simultaneously. So now, users can easily take note or sketch while watching a video or browsing the web. Plus, this also allows users to freely capture and crop images, and paste them onto the other screen to make personal notes and enhance productivity.

As for those who want to use the GALAXY Note 10.1 more for creative expression, this tablet comes pre-loaded with Adobe Photoshop Touch, which allows them to create a never-ending list of creative works of art. Furthermore, the Shape Match and Formula Match features of the S Note also helps digitize geometric shapes as well as solve numeric formulas hand-written with the S Pen.

Finally, the GALAXY Note 10.1 will also be compatible with the newly developed Samsung Learning Hub, which will be launched in Malaysia later in the year. This new hub allows users to access extensive multimedia educational content for all ages. Users will also be able to scribble and jot down notes on their eTextbooks while watching lectures or do their research from the web. Lastly, the Learning Hub features learning management system that provides schedule and performance monitoring tools.

Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 looks to continue lighting the flame that first started with the GALAXY Note and with its many features, it definitely looks to be another top-seller for Samsung. So if you are interested in getting one for yourself, the GALAXY Note 10.1 is priced at RM2,199 and can also be obtained through our local telcos such as Maxis, DiGi, Celcom and U Mobile.
