Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet UK price revealed
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is the latest iPad rival from the South Korean gadget giant: it was launched last week, but today we’re seeing the first glimpses of pricing for the Android slates. Want to know how much one will set you back? Brace yourselves.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet aims to capitalise on the surprise success of its smaller brother, which it has shipped more than five million units of in under a year. It’s a big slate packing Android 4.0, a quad-core 1.4GHz processor and a massive 2GB of memory for juggling all your apps at once. But based on pricing announced today, it’s going to have to be very good to stand out from the crowd.
Online retailer Clove.co.uk has revealed that RRP for the 16GB Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is £414, while the 3G model will set you back £508.80. Expansys meanwhile is listing the Wi-Fi model for £399, and the 3G model for £479.
That pricing is very much in line with Apple’s 16GB third generation iPad, which is dangerous ground. Few rivals have managed to sell tablets at that price successfully – HP’s TouchPad, for instance, was a massive flop until a huge price cut to £99 – and instead sought business at the cheaper end of the market, where Asus’s Google Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire Android tablets are cleaning up.
Still intrigued by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1? We’ve got good news for you: we’ll have a full review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android tablet for you by the end of the week, so stay tuned – and in the meantime let us know if you’ll be pre-ordering in the comments.
