The original Galaxy Tab may have got lukewarm reception but this has not stopped Samsung from announcing a bigger version of the Tab the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This bigger Tab from Sammy is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset and packs a 10.1-inch screen with WXGA (1280×800) resolution. The tablet weighs only 599 grams and is only 0.4-inch thick. The back of this 10.1-inch Tab sports an 8MP camera with AF and LED flash while the front has a 2MP camera for video calling. The Tab will be capable of recording as well as playing back 1080p videos. The usual Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, SIM card slot, GPS with A-GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and a 3.5mm audio jack are also present. Sadly, the tablet lacks a mini-HDMI port as well as a micro-USB port. It features the same proprietary port from Samsung as found on the original Tab. Thankfully, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a Google Experience device and thus runs on stock Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The tablet will be available in capacities of 16 GB and 32GB. It will be powered by a 6860mAh battery. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is expected to be available in Europe and Asia by March.
