  5. 5. The Negative Side?So far, for everyday practical use, I could not really find any negative aspect to the SamsungGalaxy Note 10.1. However I do see a lot of reviewers, especially the professional reviewersmentioning that it is not HD (High Definition).Unless you really want to bring the tablet right in front of your eyes, you will hardly noticeanything. In fact when I first look at the demo Helicopter clip that Samsung had, I was soimpressed with the clarity and sharpness of the screen.Also do note that to use HD, you will need HD applications and there are not many HDapplications in the market at this moment.What Have Owners Of The Note 10.1 Have To Say?If you are a student who needs to take notes and annotate pdf or slides, you SHOULD get theNote 10.1. With this, I am not going to bring any backpack and notes. I am reallllly happywith my new tablet!… H. YoonI just can’t say enough about this tablet. I am so glad that it finally came out. And as amazingas this thing is already, Sammy says we should get Jelly Bean very shortly! So an alreadygreat tablet will become even better! If you are considering taking the plunge with this thing,go ahead and do it! I think you’ll be happy. It seems like the possibilities are almost endlesswith this device. Did I mention that the S-Pen is crazy awesome?!?!?!!! EddsterAfter a week with this device I will say it is the best mobile device I have ever owned, handsdown… NakIf you have been an iPad user for long time, I suggest you give the Note a couple of daysbefore you make your decision. On the first day, I was a bit disappointed because it did notwork in the way I was used to. But once I get used it, I came to like Android better than iOS. Ithink iOS does a great job simplifying its operations; even my three year old daughter canuse it. However, for me, Android OS offers more functionality and efficiency… Sanghoon LeeI have never been able to master Photoshop despite having taken a workshop. When I learnedthat PS Touch was pre installed in the Note, I decided to try it. I’ve had the tablet for about aweek, and am able to edit my photos way beyond my expectations. The split screen is veryhandy and the tablet on the whole is a joy to use. I can very strongly recommend the Note10.1. Very happy I chose it over the ipad. Same price, $499, faster processor, expandablememory, S-pen, multiscreen capabilities, 2 gigs ram, I even prefer the screen layout (widerthan ipad) for watching movies and videos… Harriet Page 5 of 6
