Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is a totally amazing Android portable tablet launched back in the year 2013, which features a really big 10.1" display, an extremely powerful Quad-Core processing unit ticking at 2.3 gigahertz, and 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2 MP front camera.

This tablet is a compact tablet, taking into consideration it has a 10.1 inches screen and it's just 9.57 inches long. Being just 0.31" thick,the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is extremely thin and stilized. This tablet isn't very light comparing with today standards, weighting 19.29 ounces. The Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is sold in 2 different colors, black and white.

Samsung packed this tablet with a nice 10.1" display, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , making everything look very good. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

Samsung decided to equip this tablet device with an extremely powerful Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2.3 GHz, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip and a huge 3 GB RAM. Graphic intensive apps generally consume a lot of processing power, so this tablet also counts with a 450 megahertz Adreno 330 graphics processing unit to improve overall performance. A great point of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is its huge 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, more than enough to install hundreds of apps without having to worry about how much memory is left.
