Samsung reveals price for next-gen Galaxy Note 10.1 Samsung has unveiled the pricing and availability of their "2014 edition" Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
The tablet, which will ship with a stylus, goes on sale on October 10th for $550, a surprising choice given Apple's next flagship iPad will sell for $500.

Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets have a high-resolution 2560 x 1600-pixel display and are powered by a quad-core Exynos processor and 3GB RAM.

"Last year's launch of the Galaxy Note 10.1 introduced the integration of S Pen capabilities to the tablet category and created a new experience for consumers," said Travis Merrill, vice president of tablet marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "We continue to evolve the Galaxy Note experience with the new Note 10.1 2014 Edition. With premium software features and a sophisticated design, we're delivering an exceptional and even more engaging tablet experience."

Additionally, the tablet is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, but with a textured back cover.

Samsung used practically the entire press release to boast about the S Pen and revamped multitasking capabilities of the device, which are two of its main differentiating features from the iPad, and other tablets.
