As June 8 draws closer, fan frenzy surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is reaching a fever pitch. What has made the Android tablet even more of a top draw is the fact that the tablet will now have on-board the latest Android 3.1 Honeycomb and not Android 3.0 as it was earlier believed to be. At least, that is what the latest product page for the Samsung tablet is displaying.
Also, a twitter update has also made the buzz surrounding the tablet to reach an all time high. The tweet is claiming that the tablet is just days away instead of weeks. However, the tweet has also led to things getting a bit complicated as prior to that, it was widely speculated that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 might actually suffer some delay to allow for the latest Honeycomb to be made part of the tablet’s package right from day one. However, while that is always welcome, the delay would have added a lot of frustration to many. So if the report of all of that getting reversed to a launch date before June 8 indeed turns out to be true, then it will be extremely welcome to the eager buyers of the tablet.
In the meantime, while the bigger but thinner Galaxy Tab 10.1 continues to be in the midst of speculation, its slightly smaller sibling – the Galaxy Tab 8.9 – isn’t lagging too far behind. In fact, the tablet is already on pre-order at Amazon for a price of €606.50, which is inclusive of VAT. There are no shipping dates mentioned, though, and further information about the product itself, like if that’s the price for the 3G enabled tablet or Wi-Fi version, is not forthcoming, either.
We look forward to an official statement from any parties involved.
