Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition gets UK price and release

#

While it seems that Samsung won’t be providing the Nexus 10 again this year the company still has some worthy Android tablets of its own, and now the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition gets a UK price and release date timeframe.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has got a lot of Android users excited about its arrival since the company announced the device back in September, and now an eagle eyed shopper has sent in the image that you can see on this page to Android Central of the device on display at a Currys/PC World Store.

It is being reported that the device will go on sale from next week via the retailer with the unit costing £499.99 for the Wi-Fi model with 16GB of on board storage. The listing for the device has it powered by a quad core processor, while the Samsung Octa core Exynos 5240 is under the hood but this is just thought to be a mistake by the retailer.

The device has impressed with its 10.1-inch display at a resolution of 2560 x 1600 with a pixel density of 300ppi, which is paired with an impressive 3GB of RAM. Online retailer Clove has the same device listed for £479.99 so will save you £20, while Expansys has it listed for £499.99 with stock expected in two days time.

Do you plan to get the new Galaxy Note 10.1?

        Not true… US price including tax and shipping = $549. At today’s rate that is £340. I understand that the price should be somewhat higher over here due to higher taxes, but +£160 is ridiculous.

          Frugal – not true – I just bought it from Best Buy. the 32GB was $549 EXCLUDING sales tax – any US prices are always excluding sales tax because each state can charge its own and change it as they choose. So thats about 350 quid. If you deduct VAT from the 479 pounds that people are paying, UK price is about 391 pounds. It’s not THAT much more expensive 🙂

            Oops – I bought that 16GB version. Otherwise it wouldn’t have been comparable. Incidentally the 32GB version goes for $599.

    Love the tablet but genuinely cross about the price. I had been looking at American listings and knowing that it will be more expensive in the UK I had expected it to be £399. How wrong I was.

    Just bought mine today – very excited – great piece of kit – except for the teething issues which I experienced in store – there is a bug with the text to write due to Samsung not renewing the license – expect a fix soon!

    Well done Samsung! with that extortionate price you have just pushed many expectant users like myself in the direction of Nexus 10 (2.0), LG G pad 8.3 or and IPad 4 or 5. After the US price was released I was hoping for the UK price to be in the £379 – £400 price range, but £499 for the basic 16GB / WIFI is way to much.

    I was looking forward to picking up one of these bad boys, but at nearly £500, I think I’ll be going elsewhere. I’ve a friend on holiday in Florida at the moment and could get her to pick one up, but I’m worried about UK compatibility issues. Can anyone advise whether this would be an issue?

    Only 16gb in the UK? Seems they are all advertising that. I bought the 32gb 2 days ago in Czech Republic for £544, a much better deal.
