When the Galaxy Note came out, the cynics and skeptics (myself included) scoffed. "Too big for a phone, too small for a tablet" we said. Well, as it turns out, quite a few people bought it. However, as much as some people may have liked the Note, it's hard to disagree that the stylus would feel more at home on a full-size tablet. Which is exactly what the Galaxy Note 10.1, shown in this shiny new ad, aimed to accomplish.
Of course, we haven't heard much about this device since it was announced at MWC back in February. At the time, the device lacked a few notable features, particularly the slot for the S-Pen which was actually added to a retooled version of the device more recently. We still don't know key details like pricing or availability. That's not stopping Samsung from advertising it, however.
Samsung is set to announce and unveil the next Galaxy device at a special event on August 15th. We're a little skeptical that Samsung would have a special event for an already-announced device, and rumors have been circulating that the device to be announced is actually the Galaxy Note 2, however there's no reason it can't be both.
Hopefully it will arrive soon, though, and at a price point that consumers can stomach. Because otherwise this tablet might just get crushed under the flood of Nexus 7 orders.
