Samsung launched a new tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1.

The release comes mid-way through a patent trial involving the South Korean firm and Apple in which each company has accused the other of copying its technology.

The new Android tablet distinguishes itself from the iPad by featuring a stylus and a screen which can measure 24 levels of pressure sensitivity.

It also allows a split-screen mode in which two apps can be used at once.

In addition Samsung has opted to retain a look it introduced in 2011 placing wider bezels along two of the device's sides. The feature was created after a German court temporarily banned earlier models for infringing Apple's tablet design. Apple claims that some users mistakenly bought Samsung tablets believeing they were iPads

The significance of this is that Apple is seeking damages in the California-based trial claiming that its rival's original Galaxt Tab computers were "confusingly" similar to its own.
