Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands-on

We take a quick look at Samsung’s Honeycomb equipped tablet.

Samsung officially showcased their 10″ tablet at MWC yesterday and I got a chance to do a quick hands on. First of all, I think it was wise of Samsung not to call it Galaxy Tab 2, even though this really is leaps and bounds ahead of their 7″ tablet released late last year. Calling it Galaxy Tab 2 would have certainly infuriated early adopters who might feel that their still new tablet is obsolete.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a pure honeycomb experience meaning it won’t be loaded with Samsung’s Touch Wiz interface that I’m not a big fan of. Specs wise, it’s powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and has a front-facing 2 megapixel camera as well as a 8 megapixel imager around back. The 10.1″ screen has the same 1280×800 resolution that we saw in the Motorola Xoom.

Lets hope it doesn’t share the same price tag as the Xoom which Best Buy is quoting $1199 on their website for pre-orders.
