Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Rolls Through FCC

| May 5, 2011 | Reply
If you don’t already know, Samsung has a couple of impressive looking Galaxy Tab tablets being prepped to hit the market this year. One is the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the other the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Both will be sporting some awesome specs and will be thinner than the iPad 2. Samsung has stated that they will both be released in “early summer” of this year, and there have been rumors of a release date of June 8th.
Reinforcing this very near future release date is the fact that the 10.1 variation has just passed through the FCC.

The FCC records show that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is sporting a super thin 8.6 mm thickness (as compared to the iPad 2 at 8.8mm), a  model number of GT-P7510 and has a silver hue on the upper side of the rear area.

Some additional features are:

  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • Dual-core 1GHz processor
  • Up to 32GB of internal memory
  • 2 MP front facing camera
  • 3 MP rear camera
  • A  6,860 mAh battery (10 hours of life)
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS support

It is not known whether this particular one is a 3G/4G model or the WiFi-only one.

As stated above, there are rumors of a June 8th release. The 16GB version could sell for $500 and the 32GB model for $600.


I don’t know how you cannot be excited about Samsung’s upcoming tablet offerings, I know I am… I’m particularly interested in the 8.9 model, as I think that would be a perfect size for me.

Could Samsung’s upcoming offerings bring Android tablets closer to legitimately competing with the iPad? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
