The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is just 9.57 inches long and 6.75 inches wide, but it is still able to fit a a 10.1" display. The Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is available in two color options, black and white.

This tablet is powered by an extremely powerful 2.3 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip and a great 3 GB of RAM memory.
