Samsung announced its latest tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 on Wednesday. Sadly, many reviewer not feel impressed with this new tablet with stylus pen. They said the Note 10.1 just isn’t up there with the Asus Transformer Infinitys, Nexus 7s, and iPads of the world. However, we can’t judge like that. Last time, despite initial skepticism that the original Galaxy Note’s 5.3-inch display was too big, the device has surpassed expectations, with the company quick to claim a hit product. The company says it has sold 10 million units of the Galaxy Note in the past nine months.
Well, there is no secret that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line has done poorly, with recent court filings revealing the company sold a total of 1.4 million tablets, including the original Galaxy Tab, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE — a mere fraction of the millions of iPads that Apple has been able to sell in the same period.
The iPad still king of tablet with new high-resolution screen, huge app support but not so friendly ecosystem. However, you still have Nexus 7, which is a budget tablet (save your pocket money).
