Galaxy Tab 10.1

Asus Eee Pad 32GB Transformer
Honeycomb tablets finally deliver

It happened a week later than we originally expected, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is now widely available to purchase in Best Buy stores across America, as well as the obligatory online stores (Amazon, New Egg, et al).

The 10.1-inch, Android Honeycomb 3.1-based tablet has garnered positive reviews, thanks to its slim design, light weight, and commendable battery life — looking like a valid challenger to the iPad's tablet crown.

Powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, the Tab 10.1 comes in 16GB and 32GB iterations, priced at $499 and $599 respectively. Currently, Wi-Fi-only models are all that are available, although an HSPA+ version will be available soon for a $130 premium.

OS upgrades

What really gets me with phones and now these tablets is that the user has to wait for the phone or the tablet manufacturer to push the upgrade to the user instead of the user being about to upgrade directly from the OS manufacturer....google.

How many of you would want to buy/build a computer if you had to wait for Dell, Foxconn, Asus, Acer or some parts manufacturer to provide you with an OS upgrade (microsoft) rather than getting it from microsoft/newegg/bestbuy/etc and upgrading yourself.
