New Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 build features faster processor and S-Pen holster slot

For those that had their eye on the new Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet that Samsung announced a bit ago, here’s some news to bring some more appeal. When the device was first brought to light, there was a bit of confusion as to why Samsung was releasing two nearly identical tablets with the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The answer seems to be that the situation was a temporary one, with new spec information upgrading the Galaxy Note 10.1 to a quad-core processor and leaving the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 as a more value-centric device. Some more happy news (and some that was to be expected) is that Samsung has also incorporated a built-in holster for the S-Pen in the revamped housing of the Note tablet. While it was announced that integration with the specialized stylus would be a feature of the Galaxy Note 10.1, a dedicated place to stick the S-Pen when not in use is always a plus. That thing can’t be cheap to replace if you lose it, after all.

With the announcement of these features, are there those of you that are deadset on getting the Galaxy Note 10.1? Let us know in the comments below! Those looking at other options chime in as well, and let us know what’s making your decision.

    After accidentally shattering the front screen of my Transformer Prime by dropping it a foot off the ground…. I don’t know if my heart can take another 10″ tablet.

    I have the original Galaxy 10.1 and I was going to upgrade to the new 10.1. After looking at and playing around with it not much of upgrade. So I’m waiting for the Galaxy 10.1 Note.
