The iPad in particular still kills with its high res screen, huge app support, and Apple’s still unmatched ecosystem.
Here’s a handy spec list comparing the Note 10.1′s most important specs with the iPad’s and Nexus 7′s.
SamsungGalaxy Note 10.1 Apple iPad (third generation) Google Nexus 7 Display 10.1 inch, 1,280×800 pixel display 9.7 inch, 2,048×1,536 pixel display 7 inch, 1,280×800 pixel display Processor 1.4GHz quad core Exynos 4412 1GHz dual core A5X with quad core graphics 1.3GHz quad core Tegra 3.
And with a 10.1 inch display — thus the name — the screen is more or less in line with the iPad, with Samsung’s own 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab 2 slate and with other larger display tablets on the market.
