I was opening the back of an old Nexus S when I began to notice a faint odor that seems vaguely familiar. It was the same sweet, minty-metallic potpourri I smelled when opening my Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II! I had to be sure, so I popped open my Samsung Focus and by golly, it too smelled sweet!

It’s been a minute since we saw the Galaxy Note 10.1 make its debut at Mobile World Conference, and it looks like we’ve now finally got a glimpse at the final product: If it looks familiar, its probably because of the forward facing stereo speakers on the bezel which were introduced on the Apple-compliant German Galaxy Tab 10.1n last year.
