The US version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab isn’t due out until June 8th, but if you’re in Germany you can already get your hands on a 10.1 inch tablet from Samsung. The Galaxy Tab 10.1v is now available for 660 Euros from Vodafone, although you can drive down that up-front price if you sign up for a service contract.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and 1 GHz dual core processor. It runs Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb and has two cameras, including an 8 megapixel rear camera.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1v isn’t quite as thin as the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but the difference isn’t all that great. This model measures 10.9mm thick while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is expected to be 8.8mm thick.
Interestingly, the Galaxy Tab 10.1v has at least one advantage over its thinner sibling. While both models have front and rear cameras, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 3 megapixel rear camera while the 10.1v has a higher resolution 8MP camera.
