Positioned as a device that enhances productivity, creativity and learning capability, the device is now available for purchase at Samsung’s Experience Store in Ikeja City Mall and at authorised retailers across the country.
Speaking at the launch of the device recently, Head of Marketing,
Hand Held Products at Samsung Electronics West Africa, Mr. Abiodun
Odejayi, said the GALAXY Note 10.1 was designed to meet the increasing needs of the world’s growing mobile workforce, by providing differentiated value of large display while keeping the benefits of the Galaxy Note smartphone.
"Our goal with the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is to redefine the tablet experience.

Note 10.1 extends Samsung’s GALAXY Note category, building on the success of last year’s worldwide hit smartphone and delivering the functionality and precision of pen and paper.
It is equipped with a quad-core processor that allows users to run multiple applications at a faster speed than the previous version, which has a dual-core processor.
Other features include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.9-megapixel front camera, a microSD slot that allows for expansion by up to an extra 32GB of storage and a battery life that supports up to nine hours of usage.
Head of Sales, Hand Held Products, Samsung Electronics West Africa, Olumide Ojo, described the new device as ‘true multitasking’.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Note 10.1, he said, remained unique because its screen could display two applications at once, allowing the user to cut and paste material between the applications. “For instance, a user can take notes while reading a book; look up some information while watching a movie or even copy an address from an online magazine onto the notepad,” Ojo explained.
The device also comes with a customised copy of Adobe Photoshop Touch, which allows users to do fine-grained, and professional quality photo editing.
From its inception as a small export business, Samsung has grown to become one of the world’s leading electronics companies, specialising in digital appliances and media, semiconductors, memory and system integration.
