"Oh say it ain't so Samsung, say it ain't so" - possible comments from the latest batch of GALAXY Note 10.1 owners in light of a recent Samsung YouTube teaser video, in which the firm depicts its "newest Windows-8-ready innovation", which, from what little information can be gleaned from the video, appears to be a notebook-tablet hybrid (OK, we're applying a little conjecture when we say hybrid), featuring the famous S-Pen from the GALAXY Note line-up.
The notebook and teaser trailer both have a very Asus Transformer Infinity 'feel' to them. Whilst it's not clear if this device will feature an ARM or Intel processor, we suspect, given the luxury design when compared with the GALAXY Note 10.1 and, bearing in mind that Wacom integration with an Intel machine is something Samsung has done before, that it may very-well be the latter firm that has managed to place its processor at the heart of this machine - of course, our guesswork could be a little off and we're simply looking at a Windows 8 RT notebook.
If Samsung can pull-off all the same stops as other OEMs when it comes to the latest slim notebook form-factors and performance, whilst integrating S-Pen at the same time, then the firm will be revealing what it likely to be a very popular piece of kit, likely during its August 29th announcement. No doubt GALAXY Note 10.1 owners who were willing to spend more for a high-end S-Pen system will be somewhat upset with the prospect of a superior device being released only months down-the-line - let's just hope it doesn't have a Retina-class display as well!
