It’s about that time again, time to get another hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, this time with a working set of guts! Last time we had our claws around this magical device, it was in Orlando Florida at a super secret event where we were able to see a very early chassis of the device (with a gray/black back and no working insides,) alongside a tablet unit made specifically to show off Samsung’s new TouchWiz UX (sort of right alongside TouchWiz 4.0, but made for tablets.) What we’re seeing now here at Google I/O is a fully functional Galaxy Tab 10.1 unit, white backed and beautiful!
A bit more info on what you’re about to see: this is a whole new generation of tablet PC, featuring Android 3.0 Honeycomb on a 8.6 millimeter thin slice of technology that feels like a whiff of air, essentially. The 10.1 version of this tablet (the one we’re seeing here today) weighs in at 595 grams and is the thinnest mobile tablet in the world – yes, thinner than the iPad 2. This device is set to support HSPA+ network speeds, Bluetooth, Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and comes packed with a 1GHz dual-core processor for excellent banging for your buck.
Have a peek at the extensive gallery of our pro holders of the tab and a video specially directed by George Lucas for you fans of excellent filmmaking. We spared no expense here, this is probably the best video you’re ever going to see in your entire life. Meanwhile, stay tuned as we continue to bring you the hot, hot Google I/O action via your 2011 portal.
Be here for all the up to the minute action all week!
