Samsung Electronics says its new slim tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, will be available in the UK on 4th August 2011. It’ll launch with Android v3.1 and will be offered in 3G+WiFi and WiFi-only versions.
As the name suggests, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 10.1-inch WXGA TFT LCD screen. It weighs 565g, runs a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip and is just 8.6 millimetres deep.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Mobile at Samsung 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.”
Samsung has also confirmed that the mid-sized Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be available later this year in the UK.
