Folks in NYC may have been able to get their hands on one a bit early (not to mention those that attended Google I/O), but everyone else will finally be able to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The tablet is now available at Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon, Micro Center, Tiger Direct, and Newegg.
As expected, the WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 price is $499 and $599 for the 16GB and 32GB model, respectively. The tablet will be available through Sprint in “mid-summer” as well (still just WiFi-only).
The WiFi-only Honeycomb tablet promises faster and smoother running of different applications, user-friendly navigation, and support for USB peripherals owing to its underlying operating system–Android 3.1 Honeycomb–plus the awesome NVIDIA Tegra 2 (1GHz) super-power-of-a-dual-core-mobile-processor.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is as fast as it is thin–said to be the world’s thinnest tablet at 8.6 millimeters, a fact that also accounts for its light weight (565 grams). Translation: easy on the hands and great mobile convenience.
The device also comes with TouchWiz UX, Samsung’s own user interface customization.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 doesn’t have a standard USB port, although Samsung has promised to provide adapters for the 30-pin connector on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Upcoming 4G models of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have standard USB ports.
