5. It€™s all about quad-core When Samsung first showed off the Galaxy Note 10.1 at Mobile World Congress in February, the company said that it would come with a dual-core processor. However, as more products add quad-core chips to their offerings, Samsung must do the same. By delivering a quad-core chip to the Galaxy Note 10.1, the device should offer state-of-the-art performance for the mobile market.

6. Mobile connectivity is there

A key ingredient in mobile device success is the ability to connect to the Web when away from a WiFi connection. Luckily, the Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with both WiFi and 3G connectivity, allowing users to surf the Internet wherever they want. Without that feature, the Galaxy Note 10.1 wouldn€™t be so worthy of your hard-earned cash.

7. 4G LTE is on the way

Furthermore, Samsung is promising that it will release a 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 later this year. It€™s not immediately clear when that device will launch, but when it does, it€™ll be worth acquiring.

8. Enterprise use is apparent

The value of the Galaxy Note 10.1 to enterprise users is obvious. Not only can the device double as a tablet, but thanks to its stylus, it can come in handy for employees that often travel to client offices. The Galaxy Note is perfect for jotting down thoughts, marking up documents and doing all kinds of things enterprise users need from a digital device.

9. What else is out there?

Those looking for something other than the iPad who might want a unique mobile experience will obviously find something to like in the Galaxy Note 10.1. But let€™s just say that they want to also look elsewhere. What else might they choose? Unfortunately, there is no Galaxy Note competitor that can fight Samsung€™s offering. And until that changes, it€™ll be hard to not want to buy this product.

10. Consumer appeal matters

Samsung realizes that its core audience with the Galaxy Note 10.1 is consumers. So, the company has included both front- and rear-facing cameras, full HD video support and access to Samsung€™s music and gaming hubs. In other words, it€™ll appeal nicely to consumers looking for a break from Apple€™s iPad.
