    I've only had my Note 10.1 about a month and I gotta say it's one of the nicest pieces of tech I've encountered...
    The S-pen adds so much to the functionality that it completely turned my opinion of Tablet computing on its head! As the range and quality of the Digital Art apps keeps improving I can see me getting some serious mileage out of this device without any real need for a newer version.
    The screen resolution is fine... browsing, video playback, art applications, all look gorgeous.
    The speakers are a little lacking in volume and bass but slip in a set of headphones and it all sounds awesome.

    I can't think of a single thing that could tempt me to an upgrade any time soon.

    Oh, I agree with your praise, Noodles. Being a device junkie, I would go through tablet after tablet. And my other tablets were decent devices, I just would be jonesin' for something new. Until my Note. I had found The One, well, you know, The Ten Point One...and The Two. I have one of those, as well.

    I'm with Noodles, hands down the best tablet I've owned. I'm literally never without mine and have it hooked to my mobile hotspot on my phone. Paired this way I never have to carry my laptop with me. I use remote desktop to get to my work apps for entering orders etc. and other than that I use the 10.1 for everything else. I'd be lost without an S Pen on a device. I just couldn't imagine work or leisure without it! The only thing I could see myself doing is possibly getting a 4G LTE version as it would simplify things a bit.

    Most likely.
    Samsung loves to release Android tablets, and I can see a Note II 10.1 coming this summer (or earlier).
    I'm surprised no one picked up on this ^ Is this a "hint" at something in the pipeline?

    Isn't there a Samsung Galaxy Event on the 20th in London? I imagine that would be a good place to announce a new Note 10.1. Unless they are using that to announce the Note 3 or something. Is there any other new Galaxy devices that require their own event that we're anticipating?

    It looks like an ugly Galaxy phone. That big ugly button is a real turn-off.
    Went from a Note 10.1 to a Note 8.0 which I far prefer. Looks are subjective. The 10.1 has the advantage of a bigger screen which many need. I found it a bit grainy, but nothing terrible. The whole tablet just didn't feel right to me and I felt the Note 8.0 had a better quality build and the text was sharper because of the smaller screen size. I suspect there will be a new Note 10.1 if only to make it look more like the Note 8.0 and to use the same MHL port which is quite a bit more flexible. It's hard to imagine the resolution increasing given the active digitizer.

    I would like to keep on this subject... At this present time I own a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 16GB 3G and a Samsung Galaxy Note II.
    The thing that I had a problem with 10.1, but not his fault, it was the place that repairs it. So, in the end I will get my money back once a handle the tablet.
    The question I to make is: What should I do it?
    Shall I buy a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - exactly the one I have.
    Shall I buy the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
    Shall I wait for a new release of any new Samsung tablet device
    Shall I buy a different one?

    I just now that I think Samsung is great, I love the idea of the S Pen even because I like to use it for other stuff.
    I am considering to get the same I have it now, and save the rest money to buy another good, such as the new PlayStation 4. Lol

    Sorry for too many details and thanks for the consideration.

    I have heard a couple times of a 12 inch tablet coming from Samsung sometime this year. Personally I would love one! Bigger is always better... So I am told.
    Here is a quick article I came across. Nothing special.

    There are times my 10" Note weighs a ton, a 13" would be something I would hate having to hold for an extended period.

    This has been an interesting read, I think that the Samsung Note 10.1 screen Res has always let it down from the start, but i bought one anyway, because it does so much stuff no other tablets can compare to, including; Surface, iPad, Nexus. I personally think the GN 8.0 is perfect, it looks beautiful, its light, better camera the extra 30PPI make a huge difference to the way it feels and looks.

    The back, menu and physical button allows us to get rid of that unsightly bar at the bottom, giving us a full screen viewing experience. (and something to take your frustration out on if it freezes for a 1/8 of a second)

    I have heard a couple times of a 12 inch tablet coming from Samsung sometime this year. Personally I would love one! Bigger is always better... So I am told.
    I love the idea of a note 12", I think the GN 10.1 is perfect for use as a one use application but when you go side by side, the extra 2" will make a huge difference.

    There are times my 10" Note weighs a ton, a 13" would be something I would hate having to hold for an extended period.
    As seen with the new GS4 bigger doesn't always mean bigger and heavier, we all know we should of heard something about it by now, I hope Samsung have been working on making the tablet.
    I hope there main aims are, Keeping The Same Great Functionality, Larger Screen, Reduced Bezel, Better Battery and Lighter (Just like the S4 and what looks like they have achieved with Note 3)

    Multi window would be a big selling point for me. Last week I picked up. 7.0, only to find out it didn't have multi window.
    I enjoy that feature all the time on my Note 2, I can imagine it will be even better and more useful on a 10 inch tablet and higher!

    The Note 10.1 does have multi window today. Sorry if I am misunderstanding your point.

    Agreed. 2GB is the most I have seen to date with this spec and I don't see the need for it. I understand there is a buzz that the GN3 will have 3 GB. But seeing it is also rumored to boast a 13MP camera with Optical IS and an Octa Core 1.8, I wouldn't be surprised.

    Seems like 12" borderlines on laptop size.

    The real question is how long do you want to be without a tablet while wsiting on a rumor? Always a crapshoot in the tech world.

    They've been pretty mum on this topic (as they are with several things). I was hoping for something new (not an ATIV Q) for this school year coming up. I hope the 8.0 wasn't seen as an "upgrade." I suppose my GN10.1 can hold up a bit longer.

    As an upgrade? No. It goes against the Apple Mini. I have both the Note 8 and 10.1. They do the same and excel where size may be an issue.

    No flame intended but I had to laugh when I read the last sentence - it makes it sound like the GN 10.1 is ancient. US release was just over a year ago. Oh well, maybe you've worn yours out taking notes in class...JK.

    I'm REALLY hoping, that the next iteration will have an AMOLED display. I have the note 2014:10.1, and. Although the wqxga display has an excellent resolution, it also has a dismal battery performance. LCD displays, are battery killers.

    I don't understand why stylus technology isn't something Google couldn't invest in creating a native interface for ... If they can snatch up some startup or SB then they can corner the niche market and avoid Sammy altogether and eventually create a native Google device marketed by Motorola or start an Open Hardware project or kick starter even for those adventurous types, to make your own android phone similar to how Dell did the "Dude you're getting a Dell" ... Maybe a "Man you're getting a Moto" ... I was hoping by now we'd have a "build your own" option including hardware CPU ram etc ... If its open hardware specs then it makes updates easy and I think we see from this thread there's a market out there for folks who want the "their own specs".
