Samsung launches Galaxy Note 800 at Rs 39,990 July 23, 2012 In a bid to outsmart its rival Apple, Samsung Electronics on Friday launched Galaxy Note 800 priced at Rs 39,990, a new tablet personal computer for consumers in the Indian market. This is Samsung’s first product in this category with one model. Apple with its mass appeal has been selling its tablets with a wider range. Apple has eight different models of its iPad 2 and new iPad priced between Rs 24,500 and Rs 50,900. However, all Apple’s iPads have same screen size of 9.7 inch, while Galaxy Note comes with a 10.1 inch screen size. The Apple products are also extendable to 64GB from 16GB memory, while Samsung’s can go up to 32GB. The Galaxy Note built on the success of last year’s worldwide-hit smartphone (5.3-inch screen), delivering the functionality of a pen and paper by combining the S Pen with the new device that has larger display. The new device is pre-loaded with Adobe’s Photoshop Touch and multi-screen feature, which allows users to operate two different apps side-by-side, simultaneously, on the same screen. It comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB RAM. Apple does not reveal the RAM capacity, but it runs on dual core processor with quad core graphics. Both Apple and Samsung’s batteries perform for around 10 hours depending on the usage. “India is one of the first 10 markets in the world where the Galaxy Note 800 is being launched. I expect this device to in many ways fuel the growth of the tablet market in India and help us further strengthen our market leadership in the tablet market here in India,’’ Ranjit Yadav, Country Head - Mobile and IT, said.
