Move Over Apple: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Gets the Queen's Royal Seal of Approval

By Sam Gibbs on at

Who'd have thought it eh? The Queen is a tablet user, or is just about to become one. She's getting a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 complete with 60 hand-picked entries from the 'Diamond (re)Collection,' which recounts the Queen's 60 years on the throne. Maybe the Queen likes a good old stylus?

The Diamond (re)Collection will eventually consist of a complete library of 80,000 entries from Royalists the world over, and will remain publicly accessible online 'in perpetuity,' apparently. Some 37,000 people submitted entries via an app or the website, with highlights being from Oscar Pistorius, aka Blade Runner, and Prince Harry himself -- something tells me his, errr, naked snaps won't make the cut.

Somehow I doubt the Queen will use the tablet for much more than just pressing play on a couple of videos, possibly a few runs of Gangnam-style, but it's great to see technology penetrates all ages, even if it is just the Royals. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has officially made it into the 'Royal Collection' and will be stored at Windsor Castle -- quite a coup for Samsung, given the iPad's perceived dominance. [BBC]
