Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Bursts On To Amazon Prematurely

By  | 

Thanks to Amazon we have been able to get a sneak peek at the tablet successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note, which is getting released on 30th July but was available for a short period of time on Amazon for pre-order.

It appears as though this pre-order was an accident however and this is why the 10.1-inch tablet has since been removed from the website, as reported by Engadget. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is of course said to be the Galaxy Note phablet but in tablet form, even though the phablet reviewers were initially a little confused by the device as they were expecting something more similar in size to the original Note (Samsung usually keeps the ‘Tab’ name for tablets but dubbed this particular tablet the Galaxy Note 10.1).

From its brief appearance on Amazon, we can see that the Note 10.1 sports the S-Pen stylus that we are familiar with, along with a 10.1 inch display screen, as per its namesake, with 1280×800 pixel resolution. It also has Ice Cream Sandwich, aka Android 4.0, and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor just like the Samsung Galaxy S3.

You can expect to pay $549 for the device, which as a significantly higher amount than current Android tablets on the market (Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet, Amazon Kindle Fire) shows Samsung’s confidence in its new device. We hope this confidence pays off with an impressive device!
