Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 seemingly made official
New sleuthing by Mobil.se around the Mobile World Congress venue has supported notions that Samsung's real highlight for the show will be a Galaxy Note 10.1. A photo of the tablet includes text below it refers to "It's 10.1" as well as the familiar "It's Galaxy Note" line attached to the current Galaxy Note. The screen on the tablet shows what looks to be handwritten scrapbook contents.
Having already unveiled the modest Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) earlier on Sunday, Samsung may open Monday using a Galaxy Note 10.1 as the real highlight for its show. It may keep up the Galaxy Note's approach of an upgraded display and processor, which here could mean a 2560x1600 display and 2GHz chip.
The use of a pen would see Samsung following a practice of turning to pen input as a way of providing means of standing out next to the iPad, much like what HTC and Motorola have done with the Jetstream and Droid Xyboard. So far, however, it hasn't helped either drive sales, and it's unclear how well the existing Galaxy Note is faring outside of Korea.
