Galaxy Tab 10.1 Redesign
Remember how Samsung seemed to freak like a teenager when the iPad 2 was announced because it was so thin? Well they got their act together fast and redesigned the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in what seems like no time. They managed to shave over 2 mm off bringing it down to the exact same size as the Galaxy Tab 8.9 at 8.6 mm thin.
The only tradeoff from the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a lower resolution rear facing camera. What was originally supposed to be 8 MP is down to 3 MP. With that video recording capabilities have decreased from 1080p at 24 fps to 720p at 30 fps.
Also, it will no longer run stock Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Do not be alarmed though because it does not appear to be as deeply integrated as past installations of TouchWiz have been in the past. Instead TouchWiz UX just adds custom widgets, live view panels, and a few other useful features while still giving it the look and feel of stock Honeycomb.
Samsung also announced an official price for the Wi-Fi version of the 10.1. The 16 GB version will be $499 and the 32 GB will be $599, which by no coincidence match the iPad’s price points. The only downfall of this new design is that it will be coming out June 8th instead of this month.
What do you think of the new design of the 10.1?
