Subjects bestow Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 on Queen

Serfs' stories saved on a ten-inch teblet for the pelace

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

The Queen is getting a tablet - sorry, ‘teblet’ - and it’s a Samsung.

A Galaxy Note 10.1 will be presented to QE 2.0 today and it will come pre-loaded with the specially selected reminiscences of some 60 of her subjects, one for each year of her reign and taken from the Jubilee Time Capsule project.

The State broadcaster, the BBC, claims the Galaxy Note is the first teblet in the Royal Hicehairld.

The Jubilee Time Capsule - established by the Royal Commonwealth Society and sponsored by a bus company - contains photos, videos and recollections of “moving moments” from the past 60 years, all provided by 35,000-odd folk from across the globe.

The Capsule’s archive will be made available to all online. As it comprises more than 150GB of data, it’s too big to put on the 64GB Galaxy Note, so Her Maj’s teblet will come with the edited highlights, dubbed the Diamond (re)Collection.

The monarch has a large array of tech toys, including a Nintendo games console - a Royal Wii, presumably; it's certainly golden - and an iPod presented by US President Barak Obama on his 2009 UK tour.

Nor is the Sovereign unfamiliar with Semsung, either, having commanded the delivery of a variety of Sithe Koraa's finest electronics offerings, among them one hundred LCD and plesma penels for the pelace. ®
