After a large but stylish tablet, perfect for work or play? We’re excited to be the first Australian carrier to announce the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) has arrived – available online and in Telstra stores from today.

If you’re constantly looking at your tablet; if you love consuming content on a bigger screen; or if you find yourself working from your tablet, then this large, stylish tablet may very well be the one for you.

So what’s the difference with the new 2014 edition?

  • Fast speeds with Telstra 4G, plus Cat-4 capability – Experience lightning fast speeds with Telstra 4G, plus this is Telstra’s first tablet using Cat-4 technology.
  • Lighter and thinner for better portability – the tablet is 10 per cent lighter than the previous model at just 540g and 1mm thinner at 7.9mm
  • The screen is sharper – the impressive full HD display with 2560×1600 resolution (compared to 1280×800 on its predecessor) makes for a crystal clear viewing experience.
  • Improved S-Pen technology makes writing smoother – Samsung has upped the S-Pen (LINK TO S-PEN BLOG) capability making for an improved on-screen writing experience
  • Performance – Improved performance with 3GB of RAM (compared to 2GB) and a powerful 2.3GHz processor (compared to 1.4GHz)
  • The new camera makes for perfect pics – take clearer pictures with the 8MP rear-facing camera and 5MP front-facing camera
  • Textured leather-like back for the style savvy – it’s not only important that a device works well these days, but it needs to look good too.
  • It’s compatible with the GALAXY Gear wearable device (sold separately) – receive notifications of incoming emails and alerts, or take photos and short videos straight from the Gear

These are just some of the improvements, but of course it comes with all the standard Note features we’ve come to know from Samsung. And with Telstra 4G covering more than four times the area of any other 4G network across Australia, customers can upload and download faster in more places.
