Galaxy Tab 10.1 arrives, 8.9 hot on its heels

Galaxy Tab 10.1 arrives, 8.9 hot on its heelsSome six months after being unveiled at Mobile World Congress, and following a fairly radical crap-we-need-to-slim-it-down overhaul, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has landed in the UK.

And great news if you’re awaiting the 8.9in version: it appears to be arriving next week.

I say it’s landed, but Amazon has three Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1s available at the time of writing (via Zune Things), Play is “temporarily out of stock”, and Expansys is only taking pre-orders at the moment.

Over at Dixons, they have around a million different options (ok, 12), since the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes in black or white, with or without 3G, and with the choice of 16, 32 or 64GB of storage. Prices? Here:

  • 16GB Wi-Fi only - £399
  • 16GB 3G – £499
  • 32GB Wi-Fi only – £479
  • 32GB 3G – £579
  • 64GB Wi-Fi only – £559
  • 64GB 3G – £659

Same as the iPad 2 then.

Bizarrely, only the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available currently. The 32GB follows on August 11, and the 64GB is a further week away. The 3G models are expected on August 23.

Meanwhile, Amazon reckons the 8.9in Samsung Galaxy Tab will be in stock from August 11.

There's something fishy about this, everyone knows it takes about a year to make a white model of an existing product. How are Samsung doing this? There's only one explanation, they're witches!

Burn them!!!!

Was hoping they'd undercut the iPad 2 by about £50. Maybe if the rumurs of the iPad2+ or whatever it's gonna be called turn out to be more than just hot air to steal Samsung's thunder. We may see a significant price drop before Christams.
