The Samsung Galaxy S is dominating the smartphone market, and Samsung is trying to make their tablet line just as popular.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is the newest release in Samsung’s line of tablets. Toting multiple windows for multi-tasking, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is an incredible tablet. The question is, what features can you expect from the Samsung’s offering?

In a world where Samsung is forced to battle Apple and Google for supremacy in the tablet world, it is always exciting when a new product comes out. The companies are forced to constantly innovate and add new and exciting features to their products. This is what has happened with the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. One of the notable features is its high-resolution display clocking in at a jaw dropping 2560 x 1600. This ties with Google’s Nexus 10, and out completely outclasses Apple’s iPad air. This tablet is also on the lighter side weighing in at 532g. While being slightly heavier than the iPad air, which clocks in at 469-478g, it is still lighter than the Nexus 10’s bulky 603g. This makes it lighter than the behemoth of a tablet that is the Nexus 10, and only slightly more cumbersome than the weaker iPad air. Lastly, the Note 2014 Edition is stylized to look like the back casing is hand-stitched leather. This functions as more than simple aesthetics as it also helps protect the tablet from shock and damage. This wraps it up for the hardware specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, but what sort of interesting and fun software does this tablet come with?

Samsung is known for adding new and innovative features, and this tablet is no different. The Galaxy Note comes packed with Samsung’s S Note software, which allows you to quickly write or drawn shapes, and have them converted into digital media. No longer do you have to fumble with awkward keyboards or drawing tools to get that perfect circle; S Note does the work for you. Another wonderful feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is its ability to run two apps side by side. This allows you to take notes on a video, move pictures from an album over to editing software and or use it for a number of other applications. The most interesting feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is the integration it has with its stylus. This tablet comes with a stylus known as the S Pen, which has a myriad of features onto itself. The S Pen has a small button, which when pressed creates a small sub-menu on the tablet. This sub-menu contains five choices: Action Memo, Scrapbooker, Screen Writer, S Finder and Pen Window. Action Memo is simply a small note pad that you can write in, and text may be exported into several different actions such as a contact or an email. Scrapbooker allows you to make a collage of sorts, that can contain anything from photos, to web pages and can even contain videos, all stored in one central location. Screen Writer allows you to interact with whatever is on screen. You can do things such as draw on pictures, or highlight text that you would like to note on a later day. You may then save a snapshot of the screen with your changes. S Finder allows you to easily search the internet for anything you need. Lastly, Pen Window allows you to draw a small sub window on the screen. You may then select from a few apps to launch in said sub window. This allows you to keep track of the clock while working, or quickly run some numbers without having to leave your screen.

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a very solid tablet. Technically, it is superior to Apple’s iPad and is just as powerful as Google’s Nexus 10. It also comes with numerous features that allow you to get the true tablet experience, without making the tablet become bloated or clunky.
