Samsung names date for UK 10in Android tablet release

Worth hanging on a little longer?

Top three mobile application threats

Brits will get their hands on Samsung's 10in tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, in early August, the South Korean giant said today.

Get one and you'll have a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 glossy touchscreen tablet that's just 8.6mm thick in your hands. It'll run Android 3.1 Honeycomb.

Other specs include 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11m Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and optional 3G connectivity. There's a 3Mp camera on the back, and a 2Mp one on the front.

There's a 1GHz two-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor on board, but don't forget that past Nvidia roadmaps have called for the release of faster dual-core Tegras and quad-core versions in the summer timeframe. So you may want to wait a little.

Likewise if you want something more compact. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 won't be out here until "later this year", Samsung said. Meantime, a second-gen 7in Galaxy Tab is expected in September. ®
