New Samsung tablet will be available in London next Wednesday, a day ahead of its nationwide rollout
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will arrive in the UK next Wednesday, a day earlier than expected.
Samsung’s latest tablet will be available from PC World on Tottenham Court Road in London at 5pm on 3 August, before appearing in shops across the country the following day.
The company has made various adjustments to the device since it was first announced, drastically reducing its weight and size, setting its sights firmly on the iPad.
The £399 Android tablet will run the Honeycomb 3.1 OS but with Samsung’s proprietary Touchwiz 4.0 user interface.
Samsung claims the Galaxy 10.1 is the world’s thinnest tablet at 8.6mm thick and, at 565g, is lighter than any other 10” tablet.
The tab supports Adobe Flash Player, boasts a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip and both front and rear facing cameras. However the rear facing camera is only 3Megapixels as compared to previously announced 8Megapixels.
eWEEK Europe UK reviewed the Samsung galaxy 10.1 tablet in June this year, rating it as one to watch, as competition in the tablet sector continues to heat up.
