Samsung Mobile recently sent out a press release letting us all know what events to expect from the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. The ‘special announcement’ will likely be the showing of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 rather than the much anticipated Galaxy S III. Reason being, is that the entire event accentuates the Galaxy Note throughout the press release; it would still hold true after the 10.1’s announcement.

We were able to get some hands-on time with the Galaxy Note 10.1 over in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress just recently. It looked strikingly similar to the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and had an improved pressure sensitive digitizer. The S-Pen was also a bit larger, and the device is slated to have a few free applications onboard. They include Adobe Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas – two applications that take complete advantage of the stylus.

The announcement will take place in the Samsung Blogger Lounge at the festival, so we’ll be hooking you up with information as soon as it hits. Do you have any speculations on what else they could possibly unveil? It seems too soon to expect the Galaxy S III – but hopefully we’re all mistaken!
