Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 hits the UK on 4 August
Samsung will release the 10-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab in the UK at the beginning of August.
A successor to the reasonably popular original 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab, it will launch with the latest version of Android in Honeycomb 3.1, specially optimised for tablets. Samsung also announced that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will come out later this year, as the company tries to keep all the bases covered.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is certainly a step-up in terms of power, with a 1GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. It also has a 3-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front camera, with 1080p HD video playback. And of course being a premier Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have Flash playback. It is available in both black and white colours.
With three tablets covering different sizes, Samsung has certainly tried to offer a choice for all tastes, much like what it does with its phones. Problem is that the iPad has blown away all the competition so far, because like the iPhone it is still thought of the premier device of its type.
There’s been a flood of Android tablets for people looking for an alternative though, and the Samsung offering will still be at the top of many people’s wishlist.
