We've already had one pretty good deal on a Samsung Note tablet today, but if you'd like something with a little more oomph, Amazon is offering some significant discounts on a newer model. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is now $499.99 for the 16GB model and $529.99 for the 32GB model on Amazon's main listing. That's a savings of $50 and $70, respectively.

Now, that's still really freakin' expensive as Android tablets go, but since Samsung doesn't seem to be letting go of its high and mighty pricing any time soon, this is probably the best deal you'll get on a new version of this particular model. And it could be worse: the similar Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is the same price on Amazon for the 16GB version, and it's got less RAM and no stylus function. The core specs for the Note 10.1 2014 Edition are a 1260x1600 screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and an 8MP rear camera. It does run Android 4.3, while the newer Tab Pro models use KitKat.

Should you buy one? From a purely economic perspective, this tablet is still a tough recommendation, to say nothing of the faux leather and awful physical navigation buttons. But if you've been drooling over one for the last few months, now you've got a better deal to consider. This doesn't appear to be a sale, so I expect this is Amazon's new standard price for the Note 10.1 2014 Edition. You get your choice of black or white models, and as usual, Amazon Prime users can get free 2-day shipping.

    Wow what a deal.

      It might be a good deal if you compare this with the tabPRO. But when you compare this with ipad air, the App Store (which has better apps) and apple ecosystem. iPad air ends up being a better deal.

        Completely agree. I still think iPads are also too expensive tho. On the other hand, I see them used in business all the time. The guy redoing our floors had one, and was able to input the data right there on the ipad, and give us an estimate within a half hour of arriving to our house. That is an excellent use of the technology. It's unfortunate that Android tablets are not up to this capability yet (or maybe they are and I'm just wrong).

        But most of the time...tablets are overpriced luxury times, and I get confused that people spend so much on them...

          I don't see why this couldn't be possible on an android tablet.

          • Somedude

            Because android tablet's apps, haven't yet reach the high quality of iOS apps. But they are on it's way...

        • Some dude

          If iPad are expensive how do you call the galaxy notes for example? Highly overpriced? Btw you can get the ipad mini retina starting at 400... And there's always old generation ipad still selling with low prices. For example, ipad 4 is still performing very well... And with low prices

    2560x1600 not 1260x1600

    You mentioned the S800 processor. The Wifi and 3G Models both use Samsung Exynos 5420, while the LTE models use the S800.

    I got one through Groupon for a little over $400 and they actually sent me two. So I got them for essentially $200 a piece!!!

      did you check your bank statement to see if you were double billed?

    I'm waiting for the Sony tablet z2

    The tablet is a Wi-Fi only edition and features Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa 5420 and not the LTE-enabled Snapdragon 800.

    Must... Resist... Prime too old... Want... K1...

  • agenius

    are you guy retarded? it says right in the Amazon page you screenshot that its the Exynos. Therefore, NOT the Snapdragon. I hope you can't get sued for something like this..for your sakes..
