I think this is supposed to be in Q&A selection or at least Accessories. Not General. But anyways from what I can tell the Note 10.1 (2014 edition) uses a micro USB (thank god) note the 30 pin like the note 10.1 now. So you would need a normal micro USB to USB (full size) OTG adapter.
Mini and micro USB are too completely different sizes. The standard for smart phones uses micro USB (excluding apple)
Mini USB can often be found in GPS's for example. I haven't seen a phone or tablet use a mini usb in year's in less it's a cheap off brand purchased and shipped from China.
So, if I'm correct and the new note 10.1 does use a micro USB as its charging port. Then what you have for your s3 will work because s3 is micro USB not mini.
If helped hit thank you
