In case you missed the news this afternoon, Samsung just officially announced their Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet -- available tomorrow August 16th. We've seen plenty of it, and now it's finally going to be available for everyone. As usual, Samsung has just detailed an entire line of impressive accessories to go along with it. From a "book cover" that doubles as a stand and more. Check them out below.

First we'll start with that neat looking case they are calling a Book Cover. It isn't a smart case and doesn't have any magnets, but the origami-like folding allows this cover to quickly become a stand. With easy to view multiple viewing modes too. Simple fold it the right way and you're off. Take a peek below.

Then they've also prepared a custom dock for their Galaxy Note 10.1. We are still waiting for more details but this durable, and solid feeling dock easily clicks into the 30-pin connector below, and will charge the tablet at the same time. While it isn't a "smart dock" with HDMI out, they do provide stereo outputs for streaming music or enhancing audio. If fits snug and holds the Note 10.1 securely even while tapping away with the S-Pen as you can see from our video reviews.

Then last but certainly not least is a sleek and lightweight Galaxy Note 10.1 Sleeve protector too. This is made out of what feels like Pleather, and has a soft-touch microfiber lining to protect that beautiful 10.1-inch screen. As you can see from the pictures of the sleeve, and all the other accessories below Samsung is prepared to offer a little of everything. We've seen a lot of their accessories never make it to shelves, but hopefully that isn't the case here. We'll update once we know availability dates and pricing.

    Why is it so expensive!!! Ridiculous price when all the other tablets are going for much less. Sucks some people can’t afford it when people like me really want it. Just way too much even being a Samsung die hard fan.

      The SPen plus Exynos quad core plus 2GB of RAM plus the bundled SPen capable software make it that expensive. For some, like me, it’s a bargain. It all depends on what you want and if this is out of your price range it’s not for you.

        I agree, it was a no brainer.. its cheaper than the tf300 & dock here. its a great tablet on its own, and the spen and hardware make it that much more.

    • LG6

      its the same price as the ipad 3 (both basic models, 16gb, wifi only) £399, u get a lower screen res, but gain a pressure sensitive pen, limited side-by-side multitasking, a more open system, more ram, better processor, photoshop touch free (probs priced at something like £10-£20), and probs loads more

        and with all this stuff the tablet has to offer, media outlets and Apple-fanboys/girls the world over will unfairly focus on just four of your words: “a lower screen res”. It’s really pathetic of them cuz this is a very powerful tablet, and images do actually look quite impressive on the device unless you’re holding it 4 inches from your face.

        Everyone ignores the fact that it displays 720p video wonderfully, and that even with limited side-by-side apps and floating windows, it’s still something other tablets don’t provide and makes this one much more of a productivity tool than a simple consumption tool.

    I love the tablet, but its crazy they haven’t released the cases. I’m scared to take it anywhere until I can actually protect it a little. These are all the little things that make me think I’m more likely to buy Apple products going forward

    This is great tablet and does so much more than ______ (fill in the blank), cover looks nice too, I’ll most likely buy it.

    Btw: the whole low-res screen talk is way overblown… It’s 720p on a 10″ screen, is that so horrible? This thing rocks!
