Want a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 a day before it launches? Then pop down to PC World on London's Tottenham Court Road on 3 August.

The retail giant is selling the tablet a day early. Well, almost. The ten-inch tablet will go on sale at 5pm.

PC World will be charging £399 for the Wi-Fi only model, on which it has the exclusive for a month. So does Dixons' other chain, Currys.

The skinny, light - it's 8.6mm thick and weighs 565g - Galaxy Tab runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb on a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip.

As the name suggests, it's a 10.1in tablet. The LCD screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi on board, Bluetooth 3.0, and front- and rear-facing cameras with 2m and 3mp pixels, respectively. ®
