Samsung lengthens Note phone-cum-tablet to 10 inches

Pen is mightier than the finger

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Samsung's pumped up Galaxy Note phone will be inflated to full tablet size this month as the Galaxy Note 10.1.

As the numeral suggests, this is a 10.1in device - the resolution is 1280 x 800 - and it comes running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1.4GHz quad-core CPU. Storage: 16-64GB plus Micro SD.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Like the 5in Note, the 10in version comes with a stylus and a set of apps that can make use of it as something more than a thin finger-alternative. Or maybe it's a handy 'sidestep Cupertino lawyers' tool. Who can say?

Unlike the smaller Note, the Galaxy 10.1 comes in both cellular-enabled - HSPA 3G over here - and Wi-Fi only versions. It has dual-band 2.4/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The whole thing weighs upwards of 600g.

There's no official word yet on pricing. ®
