In case you needed any more motivation to pick up Samsung’s impressive Galaxy Note 10.1—2014 edition, Amazon has sweetened the deal, offering a $50 gift card when you order a 16GB white model online. The deal doesn’t apply to any other versions of the new Android tablet though, and there’s no word on when this promotion may expire beyond a warning that it’s available “while supplies last.”
At $549, the new Note 10.1 is still a pricy tablet, even after you figure in the gift card, but if you’re looking for a solid device that is as good for reading and watching video as it is for creating content then there’s no better option in the Android world. That gift card also makes a great present for any upcoming birthdays you may have forgotten, meaning you can buy yourself a fancy new tablet and be a thoughtful friend at the same time.
Samsung’s redesigned Galaxy Note 10.1 really is one of the best tablets around, boasting a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, a 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600-pixel display, an 8220mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. It also comes with an improved S Pen stylus and runs Android 4.3 along with the company’s own TouchWiz UI.
