Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 Confirmed to be Sporting Honeycomb 3.1

Samsung officially tweeted some juicy details about their 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab today, which revealed that the tablet will whip the brand new Android (Honeycomb) 3.1 OS when it ships, and that the tablet will be launching in a “few” days.  Who knows what their concept of a few means, but I’ve seen the date of June 8th as the official launch of the Galaxy 10.1 tablet.  The fact that Samsung decided to install the latest and greatest version of Honeycomb should make the 10.1 the first true competitor to Apple’s stellar iPad 2.  In fact the Galaxy 10.1 tablet is only 1.3 pounds, and an astonishingly slim .34 inches thick.  Pretty soon these things are going to look like pieces of paper!

The second version of the Galaxy Tab also sports some impressive specs, which should help it compete with the highly successful iPad line.  The screen will be 10.1 inches with a 1280×800 resolution, 1Ghz dual-core processor, 3Mb rear cam, and a 2Mb front-facing camera.  Hardware wise the Galaxy Tab is slightly ahead of the iPad 2, so if the Android 3.1 OS is much better than the Xoom’s Android 3.0 launch OS, then Apple may finally have some competition.  I’m definitely eager to check Samsung’s next tablet out, but for now I’m still extremely pleased with my iPad 2.  Never say never though, I’ve been know to do some crazy sh*t when it comes to gadgets, so don’t be surprised if one day I end up with an Android tablet in my arsenal of electronic weapons.  You’ve been given the Android tablet you’ve been looking for…
