Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 goes official at MWC: 10.1-inch Honeycomb Tablet comes with Dual-core Tegra 2, 8MP camera & more

It was not just the Samsung Galaxy S II that grabbed all the attention at the Samsung booth at MWC. In fact, many of us are more interested in the 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet that Samsung is rolling out to take on the iPad and Motorola Xoom. Here is a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 after it became official at the MWC in Barcelona.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 sports a very impressive 10.1-inch TFT display and while it is no AMOLED or Super AMOLED display like the Galaxy S II got, it still might be sufficient to carry the tab. In case you are not picky about the ‘no AMOLED Display’ aspect, then the rest of it seems a smooth ride. Here is what the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes with:

  • 10.1-inch TFT display with 1280 x 800-resolution
  • Honeycomb (Android 3.0) on the inside
  • 1GHz Dual-Core Tegra 2 Processor
  • Available in 16GB & 32GB
  • 8-Megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video capture
  • 2-Megapixel front-facing camera
  • 599g Weight and 246.2 x 170.4 x 10.9 mm Dimensions

Again, just like in the Galaxy S II, the Tablet from Samsung on display at MWC also woos you with its sleek design and light weight. This makes the Galaxy Tab 10.1 much lighter than competition- both the iPad and the Motorola Xoom. There are loads of various other features that you would normally expect to see in tablets these days, but lack of USB or HDMI ports could be a concern.

With gyroscope and accelerometer on board, you should expect a happy gaming experience and with some aggressive pricing, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 could really be a formidable foe to the Motorola Xoom.

Stay tuned for more from MWC as the event kicks into full gear today…
