The Galaxy Note 10.1 optimizes productivity with multiscreen viewing and advanced S Pen functionality, offers entertainment features at home and on-the-go, and allows for creativity through S Pen-specific applications.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the ideal tool to be more efficient. The multiscreen feature on the Galaxy Note 10.1 gives users the ability to effortlessly utilize two different applications side-by-side simultaneously for true and easy multitasking. Users can view Web pages or videos, or launch other applications while writing or sketching ideas with the S Pen on the other half of the screen without having to toggle back and forth between apps.

Polaris® Office provides robust word processing, spreadsheet and presentation capabilities on the Galaxy Note 10.1, and the S Pen support makes it a snap to mark up and annotate documents. Additionally, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is available with Kno education software available for K-12 and high education students. The e-textbook software allows Galaxy Note 10.1 users to download thousands of interactive textbooks.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is also the perfect living room companion. The Galaxy Note 10.1 features Samsung Smart Remote, which transforms the device into a universal remote control that can control an entire home entertainment system and even recommend programs. With Smart Remote, users can easily discover new TV shows and movies, and change the channel directly from the tablet.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 carries over several features first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, including:

  • AllShare® Play enables users to seamlessly pass content from the Galaxy Note 10.1 to other Samsung devices. AllShare Play automatically notifies the Galaxy Note 10.1 of other devices on the same network that are ready to receive video files (Samsung HDTVs, mobile tablets, laptops and other consumer electronic devices). Users can also remotely access files from devices on other networks.
  • Pop up Play – Galaxy Note 10.1 users can watch side-loaded video content while operating any application in full-screen, background view at the same time, providing a “picture in picture” experience.
  • Group Cast allows users to share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers without loading the file separately.


Creativity is taken to a new level with the intuitive S Pen that boasts 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The S Pen is embedded directly into a slot in the Galaxy Note 10.1, which activates a taskbar with quick access to optimized S Pen apps such as S Note™, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch, Polaris Office and Kno.

The S Note application on the Galaxy Note 10.1 gives users the ability to combine notes and sketches with other digital content in ready-to-use templates. S Note also features productivity tools such as Shape Match, which converts hand-drawn shapes into perfect versions instantly, and Formula Match, which translates hand-written formulas into type and solves them with the Wolfram Alpha search engine.

Preloaded with Adobe Photoshop Touch, Galaxy Note 10.1 users can utilize popular Photoshop Touch features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments and filters to customize and edit images, remove people or objects from a photo, or blend two photos together. Photoshop Touch is integrated with Adobe Creative Cloud that gives users free access to file syncing and sharing features and 2 GB of storage space. User’s files can be synced to the Creative Cloud and opened in Photoshop Touch on the desktop or online for further refinement.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 boasts a brilliant touchscreen display, allowing customers to watch movies, view pictures and play games that come to life in high-definition (1280x800). The Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on the Android™ 4.1 operating system and is equipped with a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor that allows users to surf the internet at blazing speeds using the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. Measuring just 8.9 millimeters thin (less than half an inch) the Galaxy Note 10.1 weighs only 597 grams (roughly 21 oz.), making this tablet one of the most portable, premium and stylish tablets available. The device also includes a 5-megapixel main camera and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera.


The Galaxy Note 10.1 is enterprise-ready and SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) out of the box, meaning that enterprises across multiple industries can fully utilize these phones for business, including emerging Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs. Samsung SAFE smartphones and tablets provide stronger security to corporate employees using IT policy management through Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), top-tier, multi-vendor Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) support, as well as on device encryption (ODE). In addition, it provides the most extensive Software Development Kit (SDK) to Solution Partners, which allows them to develop differentiated solutions on Samsung devices. This security-oriented SDK support applies to horizontal and various vertical solutions.

Editor’s Note: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will be on display at CES 2013 in the Samsung booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth #12004).

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete end-to-end walkthrough of the analysis from start to finish. Participants will also be given the pract...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears.

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
