It looks like Samsung was finally able to make all preparation for seriously taking the tablet market by storm, having officially launched the Galaxy Tab 10.1, loaded with the most recent version of Android. That Samsung was eventually going to start selling its Android slate is something that has been known for months. In fact, the company has been preparing quite arduously, having even created an adapter meant to remedy the issue of the product not having USB support. Now, the product should already be up for sale, in two versions, with 16 GB and 32 GB of NAND Flash storage space, respectively. Of course, this means two possible price points, but with the former at $499 and the latter at $599, the range is well within iPad-threatening parameters. That said, the 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen has a native resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC provides the majority of all performance resources. Samsung also threw in a 7,000 mAh battery (up to 9 hours of life) and a variety of connectivity and I/O capabilities (a 3 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, WiFi, etc.), all in an 8.6 mm frame. What's more, as consumers probably know or can guess, the feature set of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 includes Adobe Flahs support. Finally, the Android 3.1 operating system from Google is loaded onto the device, for quick application transition and intuitive navigation. “Ensuring that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 launched with Android 3.1 Honeycomb was part of our constant commitment to meeting the needs of our customers,” said Dale Sohn, President and CEO of Samsung Mobile. “The Galaxy Tab 10.1’s ultra-thin design and 10-inch touchscreen are impressive differentiators in the tablet market place. We’re going to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 even more powerful, entertaining and secure through a series of upgrades coming to this device.”
