A Wi-Fi-only edition of Galaxy Tab 10.1 is due to hit the consumer market on June 8. The 16GB version is expected to cost $499, while the 32GB version will run $599.
As the first upgrade to Honeycomb, Android 3.1 offers several fixes and well as improvements to the browser, Gmail, and other features. Nvidia's outspoken CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, who has criticized earlier versions of Android--even pointing to certain shortcomings in Honeycomb 3.0--has been pleased with version 3.1. He called it "delightful." The 3.1 update has already started rolling out for Motorola's Xoom tablet.
As Samsung's first follow-up to its 7-inch Galaxy Tab, the new 10.1-inch model will offer a 1280x800 high-definition screen, a 1GHz dual-core processor, front and rear cameras, and stereo speakers.
