Samsung has confirmed that shoppers in the market for a tablet will soon be able to add the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to their list of possibilities. The tablet will arrive in UK stores this August, exactly six weeks from now. Sadly Samsung wasn't so forthcoming regarding pricing, so we don't have any news for you on that front.
Specswise, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an impressive little package that boasts Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset, a 10.1-inch display, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, WiFi and 3G (optional), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of storage.
The device represents a 'do-over' after Samsung originally announced a thicker, pricier Galaxy Tab 10.1. Apple's iPad 2 unveiling prompted a surprising announcement from Samsung -- the company revealed that it would be producing a sleeker, cheaper 10-inch tablet following the iPad 2 unveiling but promised it would still meet its June release. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 launched in the US on June 8, and the 8.9-inch model is set for release later this year.
"The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the latest example of Samsung's ongoing innovation in this market and commitment to the Android platform," said Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland. "Our Galaxy family all feature a premium design, excellent screens and are packed with compelling entertainment features. We plan to deliver exciting new user experiences and lead the tablet market in the months and years to come."
