Samsung releases open-source bits for new Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung has released the kernel source code and other open-source bits for its latest high-end tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. A retail release for the tablet isn't expected until next month, but developers can now get their hands on code for the Wifi-only, Exynos 5 Octa-powered version, which carries the model number SM-P600. (There'll also be a Snapdragon 800-powered LTE version, SM-P605.)

The new Note 10.1 is the highest-specced Samsung tablet we've seen so far. Aside from the high-end CPU, it packs 3GB of RAM and a 2560x1600-resolution display, as well as the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a new version of Samsung's TouchWiz software.

  • October launch? Wasn't it due Q3?
  • He might be talking about physical retail stores. Samsung and others may sell it online on Sept. 25th but retail stores will not have it for weeks after. Maybe 2 weeks after the 25th?
  • No sources but 2 weeks is about right
