Essential Guide to Tablets - Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, £320, (16GB)

The big selling point of the Galaxy 10.1 is that it comes with an "S Pen" stylus that uses Wacom technology and can sense a claimed 1,024 pressure levels. The S Pen can be used with photo editing apps such as Adobe's Photoshop Touch and slots neatly into the back of the tablet when not required. Elsewhere the Note 10.1 sports a 1280 x 800 display, that while not quite class-leading, is still pretty good for viewing images and text on. Connectivity does suffer a bit though, with the only external connection offered being the proprietary docking port at the bottom. Thankfully you can buy USB, HDMI and SD card adaptors though.

Screen Size/Aspect: 10.1in, 16:10
