Packing a customized version of Android 3.1 Honeycomb, the Tab 10.1’s 16 GB version will be selling for $499 while the 32GB version will have a price tag of $599 at Best Buy.

As you’ve noticed from the specs, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be Samsung’s ultra-slim Android tablet> The [...]
The skirmish between Samsung and Apple is getting more and more interesting, day by day. We knew from the very start that the clash between these two massive companies would create a lot of controversy. Samsung was sued by Apple because of alleged violations of their intellectual property, and, as such, was mandated to lay down their pre-production mock-ups of the Galaxy S 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Samsung Infuse 4G and the Droid Charge to Apple’s legal team, and the court. The reason why Samsung is obliged to do this is because Apple, and the court itself, needs to examines these devices to make a decision whether these will also be a part of the court case.
In this article, we compare what we think are going to be two of this year’s hottest Android tablets – the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Both are excellent – there is no question. Really, at the end of the day, like with most things – it all comes down to personal preference. Google has just updated Android Honeycomb to Android 3.1, and with it, come several significant improvements to the user experience. Browsing is snappier and more responsive, flash plays more seamlessly, and things are just all around better. Critics in the mobile computing space are finally agreeing that Honeycomb is ready for prime time, and can finally [...]
NVIDIA CEO – Jen-Hsun Huang is one smart guy, and has helped make NVIDIA on of the top tech companies in the world of GPU’s. Most recently, Huang went on the public record, and said that it is quite safe to assume that concerns and issues surrounding the initial batch of Android-powered tablets “have been largely addressed”, and that things are only going to get better and better. If we can all recall the glory days back to when the original handset was launched, and how far Android has come, and how many devices, countries, and carriers it has gone onto enjoy success with, then we are inclined to agree with Mr. Jen-Hsun Huang, and echo his ideas that things are only [...]
Many of us have been following the latest Android Honeycomb Tablet news for a few months now, and there’s no doubt that Samsung seems to have hit it out of the park with the most desirable, most powerful, and most thin Android Smartphone, the Galaxy S II.
Can the same be said for their tablet aspirations? They quickly rose to the top of the pageview charts after making a few quick revisions to their 8.9inch and 10.1 inch tablet offerings, upon witnessing the iPad 2 for the first time, whereby they created (what were alleged to be) the world’s thinnest tablets.
Still, it’s great to know that in just a few short weeks, you will be able to pick either one [...]
Looks like some good news is coming your way, Honeycomb fans. Samsung unveiled a new ultra-thin version of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet at CTIA this year, and we’ve been eager to get our hands on it ever since. This is the world’s thinnest tablet, and with a 10.1 inch display, measures only 8.6 mm thin. Thankfully, the day of its imminent arrival is getting closer, and today, appeared at the FCC for testing, further underscoring its nearby release date. We know it’s the 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab because of the device’s distinctive silver accent on the upper side of its back, as well as a camera lens and flash.
I’ve been thinking long and hard about the perfect (honeycomb) tablet. I mean, surely the might, ingenuity, resources, and desire for profits would propel the world’s leading technology companies to offer such a product, wouldn’t they?
Well, the answer to that question is yes, and no.
Let’s take a look at a few of the missteps manufacturers have made in recent months:Offering tablets that were priced far too high (Xoom introduced at $799) Did not deliver on promised functionality out of the box (SD Card functionality, and 4G/LTE on the Motorola Xoom, and Flash for the earliest release) Overlaying UI’s or Software on top of [...]

For the first spec comparison, we put together what we believe are the top 5 Android tablets of 2011: The Motorola Xoom, The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, the LG G-Slate (Optimus Pad), and the Acer Iconia A500.
You will find that while the specs are fairly similar, there are a few important differences between some of the [...]
