Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 release date officially announced as June 8
It seems like we have been waiting forever for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to launch, but the days of anticipation are finally coming to an end. The Wi-Fi-only variant of the world's slimmest tablet is officially landing on US soil on June 8 with prices set at $499 for its 16 GB version and $599 for the 32GB model.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1's release date coincides with a number of earlier rumors that have been teasing us for quite some time. The sad part, however, is that availability will be limited, and that the tablet will be only sold at the Best Buy Union Square Store in New York City. This means that everybody who wants to get their hands on Samsung's 10-inch tablet yet does not live nearby will have to wait a little longer, or until June 17 to be precise, when the device will be available nationwide both online and in stores.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a waistline of only 8.6 millimeters, which makes it thinner than any other tablet currently on the market. It features a touchscreen panel with 1280x800 resolution, a 3-megapixel camera on its back, and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. Under the hood you will find Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset clocked at 1GHz, and the whole show is ran by Google's Android 3.1 Honeycomb.

Gotta love those that can't just make a decision because "something better is coming soon! I'm waiting so that i can be first in line and therefore better than you!

Why not wait another 6 months? I'm sure there might be 3 or 4 quad-core tabs running around demoing ray-tracing

The whole show is run by Google's Android, not 'ran'.
