Samsung gave away 5000 units of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 at Google I/O 2011 to introduce it to the world. By first look I understand that it is a first real competition to Apple’s iPad2. Samsung is planning to release this state of the art tablet on June 8, 2011.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 weighs 595g compared to iPad 2’s 601g. If you hold Tab 10.1 in one hand and iPad2 in the other, its really difficult to tell, which one is thinner and lighter.
This newest tablet from Samsung has one of the cleanest design I have ever seen. It has 8.0MP AF camera with LED flash on the rear and 2.0MP FF camera on the front which are enough for taking stunning photographs and video calling. Tab 10.1 is powered by 1.0GHz Tegra dual core application processor and Android Honeycomb 3.1. On the top edge, from left to right is the power/sleep button, volume rocker, and headphone jack. A single speaker adorns both the right and left sides and the universal connection port is found at the bottom, right beside a microphone pinhole.
This is Samsung’s first tablet with a 10.1-inch screen and it looks fantastic. The Samsung Super PLS-based display, with its 1,280 x 800-pixel resolution, produces a clear, crisp image, with a wide viewing angle that looks great when Web surfing or browsing the app store.
