Samsung’s updated Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet launches August 16th in the U.S. – Starts at $499 for 16GB

At Samsung’s “Meet The Way” press conference event in New York, the company has just taken the wraps off of it’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. This is of course for the 3rd time Samsung has introduced the tablet as it originally introduced in late February at Mobile World Congress.

The tablet at first wasn’t considered ground breaking as media outlets seemed less than impressed by the performance or lack of new innovative features. Well, Samsung took the feedback and decided to take the tablet back to the drawing board to make some definitive revisions. These new changes resulted in a new slate that was announced all over again on August 6th. This “new” tablet features a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch WXGA LCD display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a secondary 1.9 megapixel camera for video chats, Samsung’s S Pen stylus system and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, Samsung has finally announced launch details for its new and improved Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet — with a launch date of August 16th in the U.S. starting at $499 for the 16GB model and $549 for the 32GB version.

During Samsung’s press event this morning, they did announce a Jelly Bean update for the Note 10.1 would arrive later this year.
