Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android 3.1 Honeycomb Slate Appears on Best Buy Product Page; June 8th Roll Out

May 31, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Those who have been tracking news on Sammy’s Galaxy Tabs (both the 10.1 and 8.9 inch versions) might well know that the devices are set for roll out this June 8th.  That’s just a few more days to go, right? Now, as if building on the enthusiasm the devices have generated already, online retailer Best Buy has gone a step further ahead and put up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 slate on their product page.

If you head for the Best Buy page, you will get to know the Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet is raring for the roll out. What we find missing on the page is the pricing factor, though. Listed or not, we tend to believe that the device would come for $499 (16 GB variant) and $599 32 GB variant). Or that was what we were told when the device was first shown at the CTIA back in March this year.

Best Buy’s product page for Samsung’s ultra-thin Galaxy Tab 10.1 slate is complete with all the features and specs the device will bring along. The device on offer is the WiFi-only version in both the 16 and 32GB variants.

Now, if you ponder a bit on the pricing, you will get to realize that the 16GB model for $499 would well be an apt rival for the Apple iPad 2, at east on the pricing front. But then, we also need to tell you that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 gives the microSD card slot a miss.

Also, the 3 mega pixel rear facing shooter is not what we would have expected from Samsung in terms of quality. However, the slim form factor makes us wait to play with the device as soon as it is made available.

Even as we wait to see the final pricing and launch date details to appear on the page, you may want to take a look at the product page Best Buy has put up for all you Sammy fans out there. Tell us if you are picking your variant.
