Galaxy Tab 10.1 taken for a spin via 12 minute video
While it may be true that certain Samsung executives stated that the Tab 10.1 contains parts that are inadequate compared to the iPad 2, that definitely doesn’t mean that the latest Galaxy tablet can’t hold its own. In a 12 minute teaser video shot by Android HD, the Tab 10.1’s capabilities are shown off and the device is taken for a spin through the streets of Paris.
In the video, the tablet’s 1GHz Tegra 2 processor shows its power by quickly loading Flash applications online, smoothly scrolling through Honeycomb’s various features and playing 1080p quality videos on the 10.1” (1280x800 pixel resolution) screen. The video also shows off Google Goggle’s that search the web by taking pictures and the various 3D navigation apps that help guide the Tab towards the Eiffel Tower.
Obviously, no promotional video is complete without the regular Angry Birds demonstration, and the Tab 10.1 appeared to breeze through the game along with various other graphically intensive video games. Other features shown off in the video include the 8MP rear-facing camera, the 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chat, and the dual surround sound speakers.
While the Tab 10.1 might not be the slimmest device on the market, the video does a good job demonstrating the tablet’s various applications within a normal day. With that in mind, the Tab 10.1 looks to be an attractive device with a capable processor keeping it going. Unfortunately, Samsung still hasn’t released any official pricing or release dates for the tablet and we await further information in that regard.
