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.

Unfortunately, the FCC filings did not mention 3G, so it’s safe to assume that this particular variant is a WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.  Still, it’s packing awesome hardware, and features a dual-core 1GHz processor, up to 32GB of storage, front (2MP) and rear (3MP) cameras, and a 6860 mAh battery that should last for 10 hours.  The FCC filings indicate support for 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will launch on June 8th, and will cost $499 for the 16GB version and $599 for the 32GB version.

Will you be picking one up on June 8th?
