This day seems to be filled with news related to Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. First we heard that the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet may already be shipping in the US, then that the Galaxy Note 2 smartphone / tablet hybrid will be announced later this month.
And now we can tell you what the next stop in the Galaxy Note 10.1′s worldwide tour will be: Hong Kong. The tablet will be released over there on August 9, which is next Thursday.
The original Galaxy Note phablet apparently sold very well in Chinese territories because of its stylus which allows for easy handwriting of Chinese characters. So making Hong Kong one of the first markets to get the new tablet makes sense.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was initially unveiled during MWC in February, but with almost the same specs as some of its predecessors it didn’t draw great praise. So Samsung went back to the drawing board and swapped some internals here and there, and recreated the Galaxy Note 10.1 to sport a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, 2 GB of RAM, and purportedly a built-in space to store the S Pen (the capacitive stylus it comes with).
We’re expecting this tablet to become available in more places in the world pretty soon, so stay tuned.
