The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has a lot to offer and we’re not just talking about the stylus for handwritten input. Samsung’s new flagship tablet also has a new feature that the Koreans call “multi-screen”. Using this feature, you can have two apps side by side on the display and use them both at the same time without one or the other shutting down. Android inherently allows for multitasking, but never before has a tablet adjusted itself for true multitasking. Andrzej has just tested the multiscreen function on his new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and it appears to work quite well.

Unfortunately, there are some limitations, for among other things, very few apps open in parallel. Only those that are specially adapted to the multitasking feature. Polaris Office, S-Note and the apps for e-mail, video playback and photo viewing work with the feature. The browser can also be displayed in parallel with other apps. This way you can take notes, surf the web, or view a PDF, and simultaneously watch a video. The quad-core processor with its 1.4 GHz and the 2 GB of RAM ensure that this works smoothly, but sometimes you have to type in when switching between apps. Once you get used to it, it works very comfortably. The Galaxy 10.1 is so far the only Android tablet with this function. Here is Andrzej’s video where he shows you the multi-screen feature in action:

    darn when I heard multi-screen I thought it meant that it was like a compact with 2 screens that fold up and can be formed to make one big screen what a gyp.

    I’m excited to see what new features come with the Galaxy Note 10.1. The
    Galaxy Tab, which is what I have, is a wonderful device already and Samsung can
    only improve on it. My Galaxy uses AT&T’s LTE network, and the two go hand
    in hand. I will probably wait for that version of the Note 10.1 to come out.
    Many of my Dish coworkers have a Galaxy of some sort and love them. I really
    like streaming live and recorded TV to my phone through the Sling Adapter that
    I have connected to my Hopper at home. With the Dish Remote Access app on my
    Galaxy Tab and LTE network, streaming comes in clear and quick. I can’t wait to
    get a new Galaxy 10.1.
