Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1


Google distributed some 5,000 Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablets to attendees of the sold-out Google I/O 2011 developer conference Tuesday in San Francisco, and GigaOM was in the house to get an early look at the hardware.

Since the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will not be available to the general public until June 8th, we filmed a quick unboxing video of our first hands-on impressions of the device:


The Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs Honeycomb, the latest version of the Google Android mobile operating system. As my colleague Kevin Tofel reported in February, the device is named after its 10.1 inch screen, and comes in 16GB or 32GB versions. Powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, the device offers display resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 1080p video recording and playback, an 8 megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, and a 2 megapixel front camera. It is rumored that the Tab’s pricing will start at $399 before taxes, but Samsung has not officially confirmed where it will be available or for how much.

If you also received a Galaxy Tab 10.1 at I/O, we’d love to hear your reactions in the comments.
