Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 Unboxing! [Retail 3G]





I just received my new Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 not in the mail (as I missed pickup) but at the San Francisco FedEx office. Well, I didn’t expect the new Galaxy Note 10.1 to comes with broadband/phone capabilities, but it does! That alone makes it better than any other tablet on the market.

I paid a TON of money ($750 to be exact) but I think the price will definitely go down to $599 or hopefully $499. If the price goes down to $499, this is going to be one of the best deals for a “phablet” device.

Of course, I didn’t buy it for the data/phone features on the Note 10.1, I bought it so I can jot down my notes/ideas on a larger 10.1-inch device instead of my 5.3-inch original Galaxy Note GT-N7000. That feature alone makes it worth while because the touch-sensitivity allows me to draw diagrams and even realistic art just like you were using a real pen or brush.

Galaxy Note 10.1 isn’t for everyone. In fact, it’s a “niche” device catered to artists who want to draw digitally on the go, entrepreneurs who want more freedom to take ideas down without carrying a real physical notebook, and especially college students who want more efficient way of note-taking with today’s multi-media rich era. There’s probably more applications but I will let your imagination do the work.

Although Samsung hasn’t officially released the Galaxy Note 10.1, it is here already (Thanks to Negri Electronics where I got it). The biggest surprise is indeed its 3G/4G HSA+ capability and phone abilities. That certainly is useful for those of you with a SIM card. You can simply pop your SIM card in from your smartphone and turn your Note 10.1 into a phablet (Tablet/Phone) device.

Will Samsung have Wifi-only version?

They should have one for sure. I think the GT-N8000 is the 3G version so we will have to wait and see.

Overall, I think the Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 is the tablet of the year, due to its abilities to differentiate from its competition.

You can have all the resolution in the world but what good is it without special features the GT-N8000 brings? Resolution can be gimmcky, most HDTVs still do not have more than 1080P resolution and none of digital media support more than 1080P right now.

Compared to those large HDTVs, having a 720P HD is plenty capable of letting you enjoy crisp HD videos. Of course, if you need a higher-resolution tablet, you can always go with ASUS Transformer Infinity or new iPad. It’s good to have choices and as a consumer who has been consistently buying new smartphones and tablets every month, I too am tired of buying too many.

So this year? I only bought one 10.1″ tablet I “really” liked, the Galaxy Note 10.1.
