Bad news, Canada. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been delayed

Bad news, Canada. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been delayed
This one is a bit of a mystery, but still just as annoying for Canadian customers. If you've been looking forward to getting your hands on a sweet new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, you're going to have to wait a bit longer. 

No word was given as to what has caused the delay, but Best Buy Canada and Future Shop are showing that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will no longer be released on July 22nd. Now, the websites are claiming that the product will be released on August 19th. 

Both stores have been taking preorders for the tablet since last month, but now it looks like you'll have another month to get in your pre-orders. Obviously it would be better to be able to purchase the actual product, rather than put in a pre-order, but we're just trying to stay positive around here. Be strong, Canada. The Galaxy Tab is still on its way, it's just taking a scenic route in getting there.

This is old news. I heard last week that it was being delayed until August. The speculation is that carriers want the WiFi version to be released the same time as the 3G version. I guess they don't want people getting the WiFi version only and then realising that they can get internet access via their smartphones instead of purchasing a separate plan.

From the reviews I've read, I don't think I will be buying Galaxy Tab 10.1...apparently some websites opens only as Mobile sites and flash is not properly supported. At the store, I tried to play soccer games on, which is in flash...this does not support it. Sorry Samsung...I am waiting for Toshiba Thrive, with full HDMI, USB, and SD. Now that is called a Tablet!!

Moved back to September 9th on what I can see. Is Samsung trying to get rid of customers?

Not really true ... it launched last week, though apparently only at Staples and The Source, at least here in Ontario. Best Buy and Future Shop show Sept 9th. I would think they are going to lose a TON of sales to folks who have been waiting. I walked into Staples yesterday morning and walked out with mine! :-)
