The Galaxy Note 10.1 carries over several features first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, including:
AllShare® Play enables users to seamlessly pass content from the Galaxy Note 10.1 to other Samsung devices. AllShare Play automatically notifies the Galaxy Note 10.1 of other devices on the same network that are ready to receive video files (Samsung HDTVs, mobile tablets, laptops and other consumer electronic devices).Users can also remotely access files from devices on other networks.
Pop up Play – Galaxy Note 10.1 users can watch side-loaded video content while operating any application in full-screen, background view at the same time, providing a “picture in picture” experience.
Group Cast allows users to share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers without loading the file separately.

CREATIVITY
Creativity is taken to a new level with the intuitive S Pen that boasts 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The S Pen is embedded directly into a slot in the Galaxy Note 10.1, which activates a taskbar with quick access to optimized S Pen apps such as S Note™, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch, Polaris Office and Kno.

The S Note application on the Galaxy Note 10.1 gives users the ability to combine notes and sketches with other digital content in ready-to-use templates. S Note also features productivity tools such as Shape Match, which converts hand-drawn shapes into perfect versions instantly, and Formula Match, which translates hand-written formulas into type and solves them with the Wolfram Alpha search engine.

Preloaded with Adobe Photoshop Touch, Galaxy Note 10.1 users can utilize popular Photoshop Touch features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments and filters to customize and edit images, remove people or objects from a photo, or blend two photos together. Photoshop Touch is integrated with Adobe Creative Cloud that gives users free access to file syncing and sharing features and 2 GB of storage space. User’s files can be synched to the Creative Cloud and opened in Photoshop Touch on the desktop or online for further refinement.

HARDWARE PERFORMANCE & CONNECTIVITY

ENTERPRISE READY

great! That'll work great with their capped data!!

I know right. The devices will probably also be Defiled by that God awful Verizon symbol too. Funny thing is ppl actually use their Verizon mifi service as their default iSP. Being a remote tech.. Every customer with it has garbage signal even with 4g.

Sweet. Now that every OTHER version of the Note 10.1 is getting Jelly Bean, how about giving us US Wifi owners some love?

Mikest says:

as a Wifi Owner in the US I'm also wondering where the heck my Jelly Bean is. When they make the Note 2 10.1 if they up the resolution on the screen I'm there on opening day! Love this device.

Who? says:

Hm, guess this means the next version of the Note 10.1 isn't going to be released in the next few months. I'm waiting for that.
