their switch to the new, thinner model of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would include a processor bump to 1.2 GHZ. Turns out that like the rest of the world, the UK will get their Tab 10.1's powered by a Tegra 2. Their website had listed a 1.2 GHz processor, leading some to believe it may run on Samsung's own Exynos chip, but the site has since been corrected.

launch of Samsung's new Galaxy Tab 10.1 today, albeit exclusively at the Union Square Best Buy in NYC, Vodafone UK announced it would be switching to the new thinner model as well. Well it appears Vodafone is planning on selling a version that's also clocked a bit higher than the ones given out at Google IO. We've yet to see or hear anything to confirm this, but it's repeated several times on Vodafone's site.
Galaxy Tab 10.1v in the UK, with Vodafone UK deciding to switch their attentions from the original Samsung slate - announced as an exclusive to the carrier back at its debut in February - to the updated, slimmer version that followed on in March. Vodafone has alerted pre-interest customers to the change in an email today. Samsung whipped the original 10.1 back into the labs after Apple unveiled the iPad 2, returning at CTIA with a slimmer version that switched out, among other things, the 8-megapixel original camera for a 3-megapixel alternative. Vodafone initially pushed ahead with its plans for the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, launching it in Australia and Germany, but the UK arm has obviously decided the thinner model is more competitive and opted for that instead. It's unclear when exactly the Vodafone Galaxy Tab 10.1 will hit the market, with the carrier still yet to announce launch dates or, indeed, pricing. The slate arrives in the US on June 8 in WiFi form, with an LTE version hitting Verizon Wireless this summer. [via Vodafone]
WiFi-only Galaxy Tab 10.1 arriving imminently; Verizon has thrown up details about its 4G LTE version of the Samsung Honeycomb slate, which is set to hit pre-order on June 8 in either gray or white. Set to arrive in stores this summer - nothing more specific than that, sadly - the Android tablet has the same 10.1-inch display and dual-core Tegra 2 processor as the Limited Edition version we reviewed recently. There's also a 3-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. Verizon will also be offering a bevy of accessories, including a full-sized keyboard dock and a docking station for multimedia use. Unfortunately this LTE goodness doesn't come cheap. Verizon is asking $529.99 for the 16GB model and $629.99 for the 32GB model, both with a new, two-year agreement. Press Release:

Galaxy Tab 8.9 which more than likely will be showing up as a reviewer's unit before it's released (limited edition or otherwise.)
back a week ago. Big hits! Then head below to see what Vince thinks of the same situation. Note his unique photo style especially and compare the review to ours.
reviewed the slate and compared it with the Motorola XOOM and the LG G-Slate and we even did an epic unboxing battle to which you can vote a winner for a chance to win the limited edition tablet. And what's even better? Now we get word that the ultra thin and lightweight tablet may be heading to Verizon as its first carrier and sport speedy 4G LTE.
peek behind the scenes at a couple of dummy units from Samsung, one of them the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, the other the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, essentially the same unit you see here. The differences begin in that the dummy unit had no working machinery inside, a microSD slot where now there's nothing, and this limited edition unit has a white back with a hoard of Androids marching forward etched inside it. This device is what we expect to be nearly the same as what you'll be purchasing in June, so it's time to give this fantastical edition a complete once over!
