Smartphone maker Samsung announced that the release date for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the UK is on August 4th 2011.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, unlike its predecessor, has a 10.1-inch WXGA TFT LCD screen. The new tablet also has a 2-megapixel front and a 3-megapixel rear camera, Flash support, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and HD video playback. It weights at around 565 grams and has a thickness of 8.6mm.
Simon Stanford, the managing director of the company’s mobile division in the UK and Ireland said, “The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the latest example of Samsung’s ongoing innovation in this market and commitment to the Android platform. Our Galaxy family all feature a premium design, excellent screens and are packed with compelling entertainment features. We plan to deliver exciting new user experiences and lead the tablet market in the months and years to come.”
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs on Android Honeycomb 3.1 and has a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. The latest Galaxy Tab will be available in Wi-Fi only, and Wi-Fi and 3G versions.
The Galaxy Tab has been highly rated and even award winning in some circles, it clearly has strong credentials that many prefer over Apple and other tablet manufactures.
The company has also revealed that they will be releasing its Galaxy Tab 8.9 in the UK later this year as their battle with Apple for tablet supremacy continues.
