Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

The Best Buy store in New York City’s Union Square will begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 today at noon. The store is also throwing in a free leather pouch for the first 200 customers. For anyone in the US who isn’t able to make it to Manhattan today, you can place a pre-order from the Best Buy web site.

The retailer is offering four different configurations. For $499.99 you can snag a unit with 16GB of storage and either a white or a metallic gray case. A 32GB model with the same color options runs $599.99. The tablet is expected to be in stock around the country on June 17th, and additional retailers should begin offering the Galaxy Tab 10.1 soon as well.

The tablet features a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel HD display, and runs Google Android 3.1. It’s the thinnest 10 inch tablet available, measuring just about a third of an inch thick. It’s also one of the lightest, weighing just about 1.25 pounds.

At launch the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will ship with a pretty standard version of Google Android 3.1, but Samsung will offer a software update soon adding the company’s Touchwiz user interface and Media Hub applications.
