The Galaxy Note 10.1 has surfaced for pre-orders at one retailer, but a potential release date is still nowhere to be seen.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was announced at Mobile World Congress in Spain this past February, and then we even went hands-on with it, but since then, not a whole lot has been said about when this tablet was going to hit the market.  The tablet has now appeared up for pre-order over at J&R, and while the prices are listed – $499 for 16GB and $549 for the 32GB model – there is still no sign of a release date.

J&R has listed the specs it expects the Galaxy Note 10.1 to ship with, but we've seen specs on this device before change without much notice, so we'll just have to wait and see what actually ends up in the hands of consumers when, and if, this tablet ever does ship.
