Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 released today, with little brother due next week

4 August 2011

Samsung’s 10in Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet has gone on-sale in Blighty today, but alas, only the WiFi version is available. People have been going a bit Apple Fanboy over this, queuing from yesterday to buy it. And there's news of a little brother coming our way too.

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-10.1The first Galaxy Tab sold well, but this new one, with its larger screen could surpass previous sales and has been winning a lot of fans in the US. The device runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb on a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip. It has 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi on board, Bluetooth 3.0, and front- and rear-facing cameras.

At the same time there's a lot of excited chatter about the smaller 8.9in brother, which could be on the shelves next week. The release has been brought forward to 12th August with the 3G version on pre-order for £605 in various places.

    Is the little brother likely to have the same father as this one, or will it be like one of Dwight Yorke's offspring?

    Why is it that they put a 1.2ghz dual core in the s2 but only a 1ghz dual core in this? I'd have thought a tablet would be able to make better use of improved hardware

What do you think?
