screen. The new, updated Galaxy Note 10.1 enhances the experience further in a
variety of ways:

Cascade View: The feature allows users to freely resize, move and pin selected
applications in multiple views, running them simultaneously or while operating
the home-screen. This PC-like feature will help users to be more productive,
and actually do multiple tasks at one time.

Air View: Allows users to use S Pen to conveniently and quickly preview
content without having to open it. This feature allows user to preview video
while scrubbing, preview email attachments without opening, preview photos
without opening the album, and more.

Quick Command: With Quick Command, the S Pen quickly activates applications
and services that are used most often by allowing you to write command
shortcuts using customized and preset S Pen strokes.

Enhanced Personalization:

Enhanced handwriting: Users can quickly and easily send personalized
handwritten notes and memos to friends and family via email, as well as
hand-write directly into their S Planner

Enhanced S Note: S Note now features additional ready-to-use templates; allows
users to add effects to their digital content with Idea Sketch; and enables
the insertion of video directly into not only Note templates but also other
templates. Users can also launch S Note directly from their home-screen for
added convenience.

Easy Clip: Allows users to select and clip content to save, paste or share in

Photo Note: Add personalized handwritten notes on the back of your photos to
help capture the moment.


Paper Artist: Besides enabling users to enliven sketches or content with
different color or pencil styles, Paper Artist enables over 30 artistic
effects that can be applied to images or media. Users can also draw or write
onto the content and share it with others.

A smarter S Pen: The S Pen now allows users to select writing or color modes
at the touch of a button, or unlock the home-screen simply by removing the S

Both the Wi-Fi versions of Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1 and 7.0)
will benefit from the core improvements of Android 4.1 which features a more
