Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Slim Variant Spotted at FCC; June 8th Release for $500

May 4, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Who doesn’t know Sammy has a pretty enticing line up of Galaxy devices waiting to be pushed out into the market during the course of the current year? And, among them, a couple of Galaxy Tabs are also in the offing. Cementing expectations of a speedy arrival of one of those tablets, the much spoken about 10.1 model has just passed through the FCC gates.

If you would remember the device was first seen at the CTIA Wireless event some time ago, and we were all excited to know the device would come powered by the tablet-specific Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. If you guys out there are sitting cool thinking this is the original fat version of the 10.1 which you have already seen, let us tell you the new 10.1 Galaxy Tab is a slimmer version that has all in it to captivate your senses.

The model ran through FCC territory sporting measurements that read 8.6 mm thickness – that is absolutely thin right? FCC details say the device sports the model number GT-P7510, and has a silver hue on the upper side of the rear area. What’s more, you ask. The tablet has a camera lens and flash for you to play with.

The features we found prominent can be listed down as:

  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • Dual-core 1GHz processor
  • Up to 32GB of internal memory
  • 2 MP front facing camera
  • 3 MP rear camera
  • A  6,860 mAh battery (10 hours of life)
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS support
  • 8.6 mm thin

 

 

We haven’t yet been able to fathom whether 3G support comes with the device, as the FCC details don’t tells us anything of that sort. May, the device that has gone through FCC could be the Wi-Fi only model.

We expect the slim Galaxy Tab 10.1 to be outed on June 8th, and could sell for a cool $500 (16GB version) and $600 (32GB). We are just waiting, Sammy!
