Let’s take a look!
I first saw the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. But it was too crowded to really appreciate it as everyone was flocking to the Samsung booth. So one quick SMS to Samsung and a confirmation sent me driving over to their office. They left me all by myself in one of their conference rooms with the only unit in the country. This one had WiFi / 3G.
The deal maker is the ultra thin design. The back can be a tad slippery as it’s made out of high quality plastic. So yes it can get a bit oily on the hands after a while. Nonetheless, it’s still great to hold.
It’s everything that the blogs are reporting — it competes in form factor with the iPad 2 as it sports a really thin design. Thinner than the iPad 2. But that’s not important. If you’re an iPad junkie, you wouldn’t care. What’s important is that this is by far the most attractive looking Honeycomb tablet in the market.
If the prototype’s here that means the devices will be on retail soon. I’m estimating some time in July. Exciting! If you want a tablet with an awesome form factor, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 delivers.
