IDG News Service - Samsung has added the Honeycomb-based Galaxy Tab 10.1 to its line-up of tablets.
The new tablet comes with a 10.1-inch LCD screen and a resolution at 1280 x 800 pixels. Under the hood, there is a 1 GHz dual-core processor.
The tablet measures 9.6 inches by 6.6 inches by 4/10 of an inch and weighs 1.3 pounds, according to a company statement. That makes it a good bit lighter than the Motorola Xoom, which also has 10.1-inch screen, is based on the tablet-optimized Honeycomb OS -- also known as Android 3.0 -- but weighs 1.6 pounds, according to a spec sheet on Motorola's website.
The back camera has an 8-megapixel resolution and LED flash and the front camera has a 2-megapixel resolution.
Users who want to watch streaming video on their tablet can access the Internet using Wi-Fi (802.11a, b, g and n) or HSPA+ (High-Speed Packet Access) at up to 21M bps (bits per second). For users to take full advantage of that speed, their mobile operator may first have to upgrade their network. Today, there are 79 commercial HSPA+ networks that can handle data speed of 21M bps, according to a recent report published by industry organization GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association).
The device will start shipping in some markets, including Sweden, in June. Pricing was not disclosed.
