    finally, a new version of the Note tablet that’s a decent spec!

  2. If its any more than £450, I won’t be buying, which is a shame as I’m really interested.

  3. B C McCallum says:

    Why won’t Samsung sell the 32/64GB versions of the Galaxy Note 10.1 and other tablets in the UK?

    • Josh Bethell says:

      It all comes down to customer, retailer and supplier demand B C.
      UK suppliers can buy them from Samsung but often have to put in a minimum order quantity (to make it viable for Samsung to do a production run or at least put towards one).
      Retailers such as ourselves, and even the bigger stores like Currys/PC World often don’t buy directly from Samsung – we generally buy from a supplier who does.
      If the supplier doesn’t get them in, possibly because they don’t want to risk holding lots of unsold stock, we can’t buy them to sell on.
      Sometimes the bigger stores put in a large enough order with a supplier to allow them to place it with Samsung. This is how some stores can end up with exclusives on particular models; the store takes the risk on holding a large amount of stock rather than the supplier.
      It’s also worth noting that it’s not just Samsung who do this, all the manufacturers do. It’s just Samsung got pulled through the UK media for it earlier in the year due to their popularity

    I see it has a release date in the USA but still no news about a UK release. It is one of the things that puts people off Samsung devices. Samsung clearly know when they will release in UK, but don’t bother to tell anyone. Similarly they never bother to update customers about the release of updates.

    • Josh Bethell says:

      True Graham, their lack of communication can be frustrating.
      Good news though, I think the 2014 edition Note 10.1 is coming very soon – just sorting out pricing :)

  5. priced at $550 in the US.. no info yet in the UK.. a wonderful device, I must accept.. Came across a nice blog…http://www.androidcentral.com/comment/reply/33586

    £499 in Currys/PCWorld for the WiFi 16Gb and no SD Card offer! The’re having a laugh!
    Farewell to the UK tablet market Samsung …

    • Josh Bethell says:

      It is a pricey bit of kit but no more so realistically than other high end tablets.
      We’re listing the same model for 480 inc VAT and the Xperia Z tablet is up at roughly the same price too

  7. Will the 3G version be available for Christmas? Or sooner I hope.

    • Josh Bethell says:

      Hi Jay, we don’t have a confirmed release date yet but at this time it looks likely that it will be after the New Year

    That’s absolutely pathetic!!!! I wanted to get a Samsung, but there shouldn’t even be a 16GB version full stop! 16GB ? SERIOUSLY Im furious at this…. That is not much bigger than 1 full Size Blu Ray disk I own. I also want to use emulation of games on my Samsung and ideally would like to have around 500gb’s but 16gb… oh my days. Well I was weighing this all up, and it seems there are plenty of other similar devices out there which aren’t really that different and they at least have a basic 64gb internal. That’s no where near enough as it is, it could have been back in the late 90s perhaps…. Absolute disgrace!

    • Josh Bethell says:

      Hi greenbeaver, local storage space is the next big thing for manufacturers to start taking a serious look at, I’m with you on that.
      64 seems to be the high end at the moment, with a few niche devices upping to 128.
      I think the biggest issue is flash storage – manufacturers don’t want to use large, cheap hard drives due to the size, noise and mobile nature of tablets.
      This means they opt for flash storage. This is very cheap at low sizes but still comparatively expensive at larger amounts when still keeping the physical size of the chip down.
      I think next year will see a significant jump in the storage for top-end devices, although we may see ‘cheaper’ devices being kept artificially low in terms of storage, to justify price tags.
      The final alternative of course is to use external storage. Many devices, the Note 10.1 series included, can access external hard drives through a USB OTG cable, you might want to research this to see if it is a viable option for you
