16 September 2011
Excerpt: The Good Excellent Android 3.1 experience Solid hardware Extremely fast Internet via LTE Attractive display The Bad Late to get TouchWiz, Android 3.2 Expensive standalone LTE plans Several months ago we took a close look at the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which represents Samsung's answer to the iPad 2.
Pros: Excellent Android 3.1 experience, Solid hardware, Extremely fast Internet via LTE, Attractive display
Cons: Late to get TouchWiz, Android 3.2, Expensive standalone LTE plans
Conclusion: The Wi-Fi–only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest Honeycomb tablet available, and it's very capable, but its Touchwiz UI means Android updates are in doubt.
Pros: The thinnest tablet currently available. Excellent 10.1-inch HD screen. Honeycomb 3.1 brings improved multitasking, Flash support, and a higher-quality user experience. Comes with earbuds—a rarity for a tablet.
Cons: TouchWiz UI means update delays for future Android versions. App selection is weak. Even with a strong Wi-Fi signal, online video playback sputtered in our tests.
Summary: Big brother. Samsung stocks up and now adds a big series member to the market with the Galaxy Tab 10.1v. The 10.1 inch screen (1280x800 pixels), a fairly slim plastic case, the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core chip and Android 3.0 are the key features of the latest tablet PC.
Pros: Attractive design, Good haptics thanks to holding aids, Communication options, High-quality camera with flash, 1080p video recording, Impressive screen rates, Performance of the hardware in comparison, Acceptable stereo speakers, Good consumption rates and runtimes, The modern design, the compone...
Cons: Minimal interface scope, Small scope of delivery, No separate user interface, High-gloss display surface, Lack of support for some formats, A USB port, a card reader for microSD or SD memory media and support for common formats, such as AVI.
Conclusion: Samsung’s redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1 might be the best Android tablet around. It is as thin as the iPad 2, and weighs less than any other 10.1-inch tablet. At the same time, it packs a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a gigabyte of RAM, has an autofocus 3-megapixel camera, outward-facing stereo...
Pros: Thin and lightweight, Wide viewing angle, Outward-facing stereo speakers, Competitive spec sheet, Android 3.1 included, 10 full hours of battery
Cons: No micro USB or microSD, Dongles required for extra devices, Camera app needs work, Plastic shell with slippery back plate
Conclusion: The apps gap is closing, but it will be some time before it does—if it ever does. Simply put, avid mobile game players should stick with the iPad. Everyone else, however, finally has a viable alternative that won’t mean having to make many sacrifices.
Pros: Thin and light, Great battery life, Gorgeous-looking display, Great camera quality, Boots quickly

Pros: Appealing aesthetics, thin, Fast dual-core processor, Bright display, Long battery life, Price matches iPad 2, Equipped with Android 3.1
Cons: Plastic back does not feel as solid as metal, No microSD slot, Requires dock adapter for HDMI output, other connections
Summary: For those who like the idea of owning an Android-powered tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is one sexy piece of hardware. It's just as thin and even weighs less than the iPad 2, and the latest Android 3.1 OS makes using Honeycomb a much better experience.
