First New York City, now the whole of America will have its hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi edition. The tablet is now available at Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon, Micro Center, Tiger Direct, and Newegg.
Retail price for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi is USD$499 and USD$599 for the 16-gigabyte and 32-gigabyte versions, respectively. The tablet will be available through Sprint some time in mid-summer.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 promises faster and smoother running of different applications, user-friendly navigation, and support for USB peripherals owing to its underlying operating system–Android 3.1 Honeycomb–plus the awesome NVIDIA Tegra 2 (1 GHz) super-power-of-a-dual-core-mobile-processor.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is as fast as it is thin–said to be the world’s thinnest tablet at 8.6 millimeters, a fact that also accounts for its light weight (565 grams). Translation: easy on the hands and great mobile convenience.
Other Galaxy Tab 10.1 specs that are pretty much standard on a Honeycomb tablet include the following:
1 GB RAM
WXVGA IPS display (1280×800, 10.1-inch touchscreen)
3-megapixel rear camera
VGA-resolution front camera
16 GB / 32 GB / 64 GB built-in storage
The device also comes with TouchWiz UX, Samsung’s own user interface customization.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 doesn’t have a standard USB port, although Samsung has promised to provide adapters for the 30-pin connector on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Upcoming 4G models of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have standard USB ports.
