Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 coming to U.S. June 8th, available now In Romania
The 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab WiFi model has been teased for months, but a final release date is now set in stone for June 8th in the U.S.
At launch, the tablet will sport Android Honeycomb but with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz 4.0 UX interface for enhanced usability. Otherwise, this Galaxy Tab will come standard with a Tegra 2 processor, 1280x800 resolution screen, 1GB RAM, front and rear cameras, and dual surround sound speakers. As for the size of the SSD, multiple options from 16GB to 64GB will likely be made available.
Interestingly, Samsung has chosen to sell the new 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab directly to U.S. consumers instead of through various cell phone carriers. The original 7-inch Galaxy Tab, for example, has been made available for T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, but the 10.1-inch Tab will only be selling as a WiFi-only version for now. On the plus side, this means U.S. buyers will not be tied to a data contract, and IntoMobile is reporting that the new tablet will hit shelves starting at only $399, lower than what we previously thought. For Romania, the tablet is now available through Vodafone for $600 with a 2-year contract.
While the Galaxy Tab series have been black by default, Samsung may eventually offer a white Galaxy Tab 10.1 somewhere down the line, according to Electronista.
