NEWS ANALYSIS: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is now launching in the United States. But is it the kind of device that consumers and enterprise users should buy? You bet. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has plenty of features that will appeal to consumers and enterprise buyers.

Samsung€™s Galaxy Note has always been a bit of an odd choice in the mobile market. The device isn€™t quite a smartphone, but isn€™t quite a tablet, either. It€™s a device that lives on its own in the middle of the smartphone and tablet space. And surprisingly, the device and its 5.3-inch screen have been celebrated as great options in the marketplace.

Now, Samsung is offering the 10.1-inch Galaxy Note to complement the smaller device. The Galaxy Note 10.1, like its predecessor, is designed to deliver more functionality than the typical tablet, and can appeal to both consumers and enterprise users. By all measures, the device is a fine alternative to, well, just about any other competing tablet out there, including Apple€™s iPad and the countless Ultrabooks on sale right now.

Don€™t believe it? Wondering why the Galaxy Note 10.1 is such a worthwhile investment?

Here are the reasons why.

1. The screen size is there

It feels like it€™s becoming a mantra, but screen size really does matter in the mobile market. Consumers are increasingly turning to larger displays in the smartphone space, and in tablets, devices with big screens reign supreme. The Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch screen to capitalize on that trend.

2. It€™s a tablet that does more

Although it€™s easy to just call the Galaxy Note 10.1 a tablet, the device€™s integrated stylus adds extra flair that consumers won€™t find elsewhere. The stylus is ideal for doodling, taking notes or just controlling the device a bit better.

3. Samsung, right?

When buying products in today€™s mobile space, finding mobile device makers that produce reliable products is extremely important. Apple is, of course, a trustworthy provider of mobile devices, but so is Samsung. Trust means everything to a company€™s success. And at least so far, Samsung products can be trusted.

4. It is a unique opportunity

The Galaxy Note 10.1 provides an innovative experience and an attractive alternative for potential customers. After all, the device can do far more than tablets or smartphones and complements the smaller Galaxy Note some folks already own.
