Samsung’s latest attempt to dethrone the iPad 2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, is now available for purchase nationwide. A few lucky customers were able to get their hands on the tablet a week early at the Best Buy Union Square Store in New York City, but now the tablet is available to the public.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs on Google’s latest version of its tablet OS, Honeycomb 3.1, as well as Samsung’s TouchWiz UX. This device also spots a 10.1-inch WXGA display, a 7,000 mAh battery for up to 9 hours of continuous usage per charge, and a 3 megapixel camera in the rear along with a 2 megapixel camera in the front for video chatting. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest tablet available on the market at 8.6 millimeters and is also pretty light at 1.25 pounds.
The 16GB version of the tablet will cost you $499.99, while the 32GB version will run for $599.99. The Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available at the following locations: Best Buy online and in-store, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon.com, Micro Center, Tiger Direct,Newegg, and Sprint later this summer I personally think it would’ve been a better strategy for Samsung to undercut Apple’s iPad 2 price to make it a better choice for consumers, but we will have to wait and see how it fares against the iPad 2.
