If you’ve waited, waited and waited for Samsung’s biggest Android tablet, you’ll be happy to hear that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will get an early launch; well, a handful of hours before the publicised 4th August release date.
It’ll be available to buy the day before at 5pm at the PC World branch on Tottenham Court Road, priced at £399 for the WiFi version- which PC World has exclusive selling rights for a month.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a big-screened, tiny-profiled Android tablet, running the made-for tablet Android Honeycomb. There’s also a dual-core 1GHz processor, the Nvidia Tegra 2 chip means it’ll be able to play optimised Android games from Nvidia’s Tegra Zone.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has gone through the mill a fair bit, having been redesigned following the unveiling of the iPad 2. Samsung went back to its drawing board, and arrived with the ever-so-slightly-thinner-than-an-iPad Galaxy Tab 10.1. To make space, some changes were made to the tablet’s specification, with the rear-facing camera dropping its resolution from 8 megapixels to 3 megapixels.
You can expect all the typical Android features, with WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, aGPS and Adobe Flash support for streaming video and audio on websites.
