    As excited as I am to get my first tablet (!) up and running, I couldn't deprive the Android Central community of a ceremonious unboxing. I refrained from video and instead shall provide photographic evidence of this historic day. Please forgive the office lighting in the absence of my Android Central photo studio (it's currently being renovated). Time for some fun. Enjoy!

    First and foremost we have the box itself. I sure hope it's in there...


    Whew! What a relief!


    Upon digging further I discovered a booklet and charging apparatus. But where is the cable?


    Ah ha! There it is. Wait, what's this?


    Different size tips for the S-Pen. I better be careful to not lose them being so small. Good thing that dime is there for comparison. Speaking of...


    Let's take a look at the S-Pen. Hope this helps with an idea for how it might suit you.


    Looking good, cable. Looking good...


    Hmm... this won't do at all. Let's get you two more a little more acquainted.


    A bond that can't be broken (I tried).


    And in the interest of full disclosure: Empty


    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 officially UNBOXED! You stay classy, Android Central.

    The photo unboxing is much better than a video unboxing anytime. Can't wait to get mine tomorrow.

    Thanks Xero, any chance I can see the gray back color of the GNote 10.1? I'm going to guess that its not compatible with old GTab 10.1 docks?

    That cable looks awfully apple like. Sammy doesnt make it easy on themselves sometimes. Should have went with a universal port like everyone else IMO. Other then that, great unboxing!

    Odd that they are still packaging up a brand new device like Apple does..

    I'm not really saying Samsung copied Apple on anything, but look at the similarities of how Apple packages up their stuff. Plastic compartments, layered, white material..

    Samsung.. come on, at least try and not make it SO obvious.

    Not a problem. I also took a few pics of the top and bottom (attached). Hope this helps.

    Cool.

    Question: What is the silver circular ring that packaged with the s-pen tips?

    You use that to change out the stylus tips (to grip them).
    It is the same as with the Galaxy Note phone's stylus pen holder. (as well as ASUS tablets with stylus)

    Also does the wacom tablets, they all have interchangeable tips

    Great information. I have the original Galaxy Note and am interested in the S pen with different tips and whether they will work on MY note. Have you tried the different tips to see what they do? Thanks for the unboxing. Reading everyone's messages on here makes me want to run out and buy the 10.1 myself!

    Awesome. I got mine on the evening of the 15th of August in Singapore. I was so over myself to start using this baby that I did not take any pictures. I am really loving this toy of mine. Oh yes, my other phone is a Galaxy Note 5.3

    Samsung had that type of plug well before Apple. I had one on my old flip-phone, just a little smaller than the one shown in the unboxing.
