Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 confirmed – dual core, Android 3.0, launching on Vodafone this spring

It was leaked a little this morning, but now Samsung has issued the official press release regarding its updated Galaxy Tab. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which, as the name subtly hints, is a 10.1″ Android tablet that runs at 1280×800 screen resolution – powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.

It runs the “Honeycomb” Android 3.0 release and is a “With Google” branded device – which means no user interface skins. It’s pure Android 3.0.


There’s an 8megapixel camera around the back plus a 2megapixel front-facing second camera for video chatting, while that dual-core processor has enough OOMPH to play and record 1080p video. There will be 16GB and 32GB storage options.


And it has a nice back. Interestingly, Vodafone appears to have secured a timed exclusive on the tablet, claiming that…

“Vodafone customers in over 20 markets around the world will be the first to get the Galaxy Tab 10.1 when it goes on sale this spring”

Here’s the full press release. The official tech spec sheet is beneath it.
