Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 due in the UK on August 16th

Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy Note 10.1 would go on sale worldwide in August, and it looks like those in the UK will be able to get their hands on the tablet in the next few days. According to a tweet from Samsung UK, the tablet will go on sale at Samsung's retail store at Westfield Stratford on August 16th. The company hasn't confirmed what the tablet will cost, but Expansys currently has the tablet on pre-order for £479.99 (~$754).

That falls in line with the current pricing at Negri Electronics, who currently have the Note 10.1 in stock for $749.50. The tablet includes a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4Ghz, 2GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch 1280x800 display, and WiFi/HSPA+ radios. Samsung has modified the touchscreen on the Note 10.1 to accept input from its S Pen, similar to original Galaxy Note, allowing users to draw or jot down notes.

Samsung has made some adjustments to the S-Pen and underlying technology since the introduction of the Galaxy Note, however. The company says that performance has seen a boost, and it's also including a copy of Adobe Photoshop Touch to bring budding artists up to speed, with the S Note app also along for the ride.

The company first showed off the Note 10.1 back at MWC 2012, although back then the tablet had a dual-core processor instead of the quad-core chip it has now.
