Looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, it’s easy to notice more than just the larger screen. This follow-up to the original Galaxy Tab concept is more powerful thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor working in concert with Android 3.0 to do all the heavy lifting. And although it is designed to go head to head with the iPad, it’s actually lighter than it’s Cupertino cousin.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is easy to hold thanks to it’s newly textured back panel and has a sharp 8-megapixel camera that has both autofocus and can shoot Full HD in 1080p. Playback with DNLA over WiFi a/b/g/n is straightforward, but wtihout an HDMI port, it could prove problematic for the unitiated to enjoy video streaming otherwise.
Viewing wise, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 couldn’t swing a Super AMOLED Plus display like it’s Galaxy S II little brother. That would’ve blown the price point out of the water. But the TFT LCD screen does it’s best to be sharp and colorful even when viewing at an angle.
Still no word yet on price, but it’s scheduled to hit European stores in March through Vodafone.
