Walt Mossberg likes Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) latest iPad (AAPL) rival, the $499 Galaxy Note 10.1, though he finds its battery life lacking. Like the 5.3" Galaxy Note smartphone, whose sales have surpassed expectations, the Android-based Note 10.1 works with a stylus; it's also capable of displaying two apps at once in split-screen mode. IDC estimates Samsung had 9.6% of the global tablet market in Q2, well behind the iPad's 68.2%. Update: David Pogue is less enthusiastic.

    At least they are finally trying to differentiate. Still no reason to switch from my iPad.
