Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is fit for a queen — The Queen, in fact

By Jamie Rigg posted Nov 14th 2012 7:09AM for

The Queen always keeps up with the latest technology, and today she’ll try to squeeze a Galaxy Note 10.1 into her handbag. The tablet represents a “digital time-capsule,” and will be loaded with multimedia clippings — submitted by people from all over the world — detailing history during her reign. A total of 60 video, audio and text entries were selected from 80,000 (150GB-worth), but all of that data will eventually be added to an online archive called the “Diamond (re)Collection.” The project was orchestrated by The Royal Commonwealth Society, which briefly considered using an iPad, but ultimately decided Samsung’s slate was the more regal (even if it is less cool). It leaves us wondering — will the next Royal Decree be signed with an S-Pen?
