Samsung's long-awaited Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is now available in both UK and US markets, a full six months after it was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The device is yet another rival to the iPad launched by the South Korean firm as it battles with Apple for market share. It is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, has 2GB of internal RAM and uses the same S-Pen stylus technology as seen on the Note smartphones.
The Note 10.1 also features a multi-screen function that allows users to run two applications on the screen side by side, which could prove useful for business users working on multiple documents or information when on the go.
Although the device is the latest launch from the firm, it comes running the slightly older Android Ice Cream Sandwich version of the operating system, rather than the newest version, Jelly Bean 4.1.
Pricing will be key for Samsung in its battle with both Apple and lower-priced tablets, specifically the Google Nexus 7 that retails for around £169, although listings online suggest the firm has been unable to undercut Apple's pricing brackets.
Product reseller site Expansys has the device on offer for £399 for a 16GB Wi-Fi only version, while the 3G and Wi-Fi version costs £479.
The launch coincides with the Samsung's long-running legal battle with Apple in courts in San Francisco, with the judge overseeing the case urging the firms' chief executives to meet to try to resolve the dispute.
