European launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 & 8.9 are pushed to August?
US consumers eager to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are surely going to be treated to one svelte looking Honeycomb flavored tablet when it launches in the very near future, but our European counterparts just might have to wait much longer to check it out in the flesh. Although Samsung has not come out verify the allegations, mobile guru Eldar Murtazin has tweeted some rather surprising news about the European launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 models.

Specifically, he mentions that the two sleek tablets won’t be released until sometime in August due to some apparent Android 3.1issues” – albeit, he doesn’t expand on what exactly these issues are. At that point, our European friends will have to endure the long hot summer before getting a chance to pick up the new tablets. Considering that we’re only a few days away from seeing it land stateside, it makes you wonder why the tablet is still going forward with a launch if Samsung is allegedly aware about some potential kinks with it still.

Even though some might believe it to be a delay, we actually still haven’t heard anything remotely concrete regarding launch dates for the European market. Until then, European consumers will have to sit tight and watch with a gleaming gaze at those new and lucky owners over the big pond.
