Reviews

“The 16GB WiFi model will hit for $499 — exactly in line with the iPad — while the 32GB variant will demand $100 more (we’re still awaiting word on 3G prices). If you’re sold on Android, and you aren’t too concerned with having an LTE radio in your tablet, there’s really no need to look elsewhere.”

“Whether you go Wi-Fi only or opt for a connected version, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the first Android tablet that makes a credible, and successful, run at competing with Apple’s iPad 2. It matches iPad in most every way-design, price, and even that intangible IT factor. Where it falls short lies is in sacrificing ports, but that alone isn’t a dealbreaker; heck, Apple’s been doing that from the outset.”

“As thin as the iPad 2 and even lighter, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the sexiest Honeycomb tablet we’ve seen. Also, it has an 8-megapixel back camera and a 2-megapixel front camera, and powerful dual speakers.”
