You should be able to pick up the 10 inch Android tablet for $499 and up from Best Buy, Fry’s Amazon, Newegg, TigerDirect, and Micro Center.
On paper the tablet doesn’t look all that different from any other tablet running Google Android 3.1 Honeycomb. It has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel resolution display, a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, and 16GB or more of storage space. The tablet will come in 3G and WiFi models, but only the WiFi version will be available tomorrow.
What sets the Galaxy Tab 10.1 apart from other tablets right now is the super-slim design. It measures just 8.6mm or about 0.34 inches thick. It’s also the lightest 10 inch tablet around, weighing just 1.25 pounds. That makes it thinner and lighter than Apple’s 9.7 inch iPad 2.
The slim design and light weight might seem like a gimmick at first, but the truth is that this is the most comfortable 10 inch tablet I’ve held for reading web pages or eBooks, playing games, or watching movies. It also looks pretty nice.
On the other hand, there’s no SD card slot and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a proprietary docking port instead of a standard USB or micro USB jack.
