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.

I think the Galaxy 10.1 and it's success or lack there of will spell the future of the Android tablet market. You have a great manufacturer in Samsung putting out an Android tablet that bests the iPad in several areas and has gotten great reviews. It is thin, it is light, it is fast, it looks great. This is the contender!

So if this tablet cannot get consumer attention and sell out then I think the device manufacturers need to stop making Android tablets targeted at the iPad price range and start making $200-400 tablets instead; or abandon Android as a tablet OS. Maybe try again with Windows 8 next year to take a run at the iPad.
