Samsung has two upcoming 10.1-inch Android-powered tablets. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is what the slimmer model, the one unveiled in March, ended up being called. In the meantime, the model that was announced at Mobile World Congress in February got renamed and is now called the Galaxy Tab 10.1v. That ‘V’ is there because it seems very likely that you’ll only be able to buy this version from Vodafone.
We’ve heard that the Galaxy Tab 10.1v was going to become available from Vodafone Australia in April, however it now looks like that’s not going to be the case anymore. According to PC & Tech Authority, the tablet will be in stores on May 4, with an added bonus for buyers: a free case (seen pictured below).
Pre-orders will start on April 20, and those who pre-order the tablet will start receiving it on May 1, three days before general availability.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will cost $729 if paid fully upfront. Alternatively, you can get the tablet for just $259, if you get a $39 per month contract for 12 months. That contract will give you 1.5 GB of data traffic each month.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and it has a dual-core processor, 16 GB of internal memory, and an 8 MP autofocus camera.
