The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is only “a few days away”, according to a tweet by SamsungMobileUS. Confusingly, the tweet mentions Android 3.0, however the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will, in fact, be the first tablet to ship with Honeycomb 3.1.
Referring to the above tweet, Twitter user Blayze04 asked: “is this confirmation that the 10.1 won't have 3.1 at launch? I'm sad now...” However, Blayze04’s sadness was quickly averted as Samsung clarified: “you are correct. Galaxy Tab 10.1 original was 3.0 but now it will be Android 3.1”.
Samsung’s reply also points to the blurb on the official Galaxy Tab site, which reads: “The 10.1" Samsung Galaxy Tab™ is the perfect ally in your quest to do everything faster, easier and better. Surf the web at blistering speeds, multitask like a ninja or watch movies in superior HD resolution (1280x800).
“This lightweight, premium tablet comes with Android™ 3.1 Honeycomb and great Google services. It can even access Adobe® Flash® Player compatible content and shoot 720p HD video, making you wonder how you ever lived without it. It's Time to Tab™!”
Of course, that’s the new slim model which was unveiled at CTIA in Florida in March. Vodafone will carry the original chunker that we met at Mobile World Congress. On the plus side, it has an 8MP camera compared to the 3MP shooter found on the Yank model.
