We’ve just scored some hands-on time with Samsung’s latest Android tablet, the new and improved Galaxy Tab 10.1. Officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress, the device was re-announced — with new and improved specifications — at CTIA in March. The tablet that we fondled is a “Limited Edition” Tab, complete with a white alien-engraved backing made just for Google I/O attendees. Our first impressions? Thin. Like, really thin. And the Galaxy Tab 10.1, in case you haven’t looked at the pictures yet, is absolutely gorgeous. Darkened chrome bezel, textured polymer backing, nearly perfect weight… it’s all there. The device we have is running Android 3.0 but we’re being told that it will be updated to the just-announced Android 3.1 in the “new few weeks.” Having handled the original Tab 10.1, we’re definite;y happy that Samsung took some extra time to refine the design before pushing it out to market. We’ve got a handful of images waiting for you in the gallery linked below, so have a look for yourself and let us know what you think.

It will be good to see when sites review this. Much like with Android phones, i think having a variety of tablets to choose from is a good thing.

Developer unit review

Engadget has now posted their review of the developer unit being given out to attendees at Google I/O, and there was a lot to like. Here's their summary:

There's just no other way to say it: the iPad 2 finally has a real competitor. If Samsung could somehow undercut Apple by even $25 here, the choice would be obvious, but it's going to have a whale of a time convincing the masses that a Samsung device is superior to one Designed in California when prices are equal. That said, we'd still recommend the Tab 10.1 over the iPad 2 for heavy Gmail users and all-around fans of Android. And hey, at least this thing can take advantage of Music Beta, if you're into it.
