Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 priced at $549 at Amazon US, should be launched soon (or not)
Amazon US is now taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10.1, one of Samsung’s new tablets that were officially unveiled back in February at MWC 2012.
The retailer is asking $549 for the Note 10.1, saying it should become available “within 3 to 5 weeks” – so if you’re ordering one today, you’ll probably receive it sometime in July.
Although it was first announced with a dual-core processor, the Galaxy Note 10.1 now has a quad-core CPU. Amazon says it’s a 1.4 GHz Intel Xeon, but that’s most likely a mistake, as the real processor should be a Samsung Exynos.
Update: Engadget quotes Samsung, which reportedly said the Note 10.1 product page was published by Amazon “in error”. In consequence, the page has been taken down. So, after all, we still don’t know when and for how much the Note 10.1 will be released in the US.
CPU aside, the Note 10.1 features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, S Pen technology (just like the 5.3 inch Galaxy Note), Wi-Fi, 3.2MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, stereo speakers, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 7,000 mAh battery.
