One of the slimmest tablets to date, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Samsung is finally ready to hit streets. In fact, the super slim Honeycomb tablet is just hours away from making its debut at the Best Buy’s New York Union Square location that will start offering the tablet at noon today Eastern Time. Also, apart from the tablet, which has been getting rave reviews ever since its launch, another reason to flock to the Best Buy store is a nice looking leather case to carry the tablet is being offered for free to the first 200 buyers.
However, those in the rest of the US, or anywhere else, the tablet’s worldwide availability is still sometime away. This is because the Galaxy Tab honey is expected to make its pan US appearance around June 17th, while others around the world will have to wait until the pre-order button starts working, which as of now isn’t leading to a meaningful page.
Best Buy is yet to come out explicitly with the pricing details of the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tabs. However, it is expected to be $499 for the 16 GB version, while the only other version with 32 GB of storage will come for a 100 bucks more at $599. Also, for those who’d prefer better mobility with 4G connectivity, Verizon is accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab 10.1s. Prices are a little hefty at $530 for the base 16 GB and $630 for the 32 GB version. The above mentioned prices are also inclusive of a 2 year exclusive data plan.
