It looks like Samsung was finally able to make all preparation for seriously taking the tablet market by storm, having officially launched the Galaxy Tab 10.1, loaded with the most recent version of Android, check out what softpedia reports today:
" That Samsung was eventually going to start selling its Android slate is something that has been known for months.
Of course, this means two possible price points, but with the former at $499 and the latter at $599, the range is well within iPad-threatening parameters. That said, the 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen has a native resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC provides the majority of all performance resources.
Samsung also threw in a 7,000 mAh battery (up to 9 hours of life) and a variety of connectivity and I/O capabilities (a 3 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, WiFi, etc.), all in an 8.6 mm frame.
What's more, as consumers probably know or can guess, the feature set of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 includes Adobe Flahs support.
Finally, the Android 3.1 operating system from Google is loaded onto the device, for quick application transition and intuitive navigation.
