Creativity and multi-tasking in one gadget

SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 10.1

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is designed to encourage creativity, enable productivity and facilitate better learning.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 offers both the power and portability of a notebook PC  with the creative tools used by most digital artists. It promises a stronger 1.4GHz Quad Core processor combined with 2GB RAM making it, to date, the only truly multi-tasking device.

Carlo Calma, Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez and Veejay Floresca were recently introduced as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 brand ambassadors.

Gonzalez loves the Note’s Multi Screen capability, which allows a user to split the screen between different apps and programs at the same time.

Google searches can be done while one is writing reports, or images can remain open while being rendered in caricature. Pop-Up Play lets one watch videos while doing other tasks on the tablet. And Smart Stay guarantees that the Galaxy Note 10.1 won’t go to sleep as long as it senses the user’s eyes still focused on the screen.

Floresca uses the  Galaxy Note 10.1 for his fashion drawings. The accompanying S-Pen is light and thin, pressure-sensitive and pinpoint-accurate, giving him the feel and ease of a regular pen.

The S Note integrates three great features: Shape Match, Word Match and Formula Match, ensuring that digital handwriting is as clear and precise as if it was type-written on paper. S Note also offers the complete digital publishing experience, with pre-made templates or one created by the user.

Artist Carlo Calma finds the  Galaxy Note 10.1 very useful because it’s equipped with Adobe Photoshop Touch, the industry standard in digital image creation.

It also comes with the cloud storage of Drop Box, up to 50GB of online storage which is easily shared with others.

With Allshare Play & Cast, users can send or stream images, music, and videos to other tablets, laptops and TVs.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 has a 10.1-inch screen with crystal-clear 1080p Full HD Playback. And with connectivity features such as an ultra-fast HSPA+ data speed and Wi-Fi Channel Bonding technology (which allows for double Wi-Fi speeds), going online has never been faster.

Other notable personalities who attended the Galaxy Note 10.1 media launch were Phil and James Younghusband, Paolo Bediones, Mich Dulce, Jim Paredes, CNN Hero of the Year 2009 Efren Penaflorida, Jerika Ejercito, Terri Madrigal and Baby Kramer, and Atticus King.
