Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for T-Mobile hands-on

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for T-Mobile hands-on
By now, there’s no arguing that we’ve covered the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from head to toe, but there’s always something new about the highly prized Honeycomb flavored tablet. Initially introduced as a Wi-Fi only tablet, we soon found it upgraded with Samsung’s very own TouchWiz UX interface, and most recently, Verizon laid claim to a 4G LTE version for brutally fast data speeds. Well folks, T-Mobile didn’t want to be left out of the mix, as they’re about to launch their very own 4G HSPA+ enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

So what’s new with T-Mobile’s version? Well, it does sport that all too prominent T-Mobile and “4G” brandings found on the tablet. Besides those two specific items, there’s absolutely nothing different about this one, as it flaunts a pearly white plastic exterior. Continuing to amaze us, its skinny size is undoubtedly one of its greatest attributes – plus, it helps that it’s also relatively lightweight versus other 10.1” tablets on the market. Presenting us with the same sizable 10.1” display, which features a resolution of 1280 x 800, it’s naturally detailed enough to provide plenty of distinctive and sharp visuals to please our eyes. Moreover, its color production is astoundingly vibrant looking to make it radiate immensely at all viewing angles.

With the platform experience, we’re introduced yet again to the TouchWiz UX experience running on top of Honeycomb. And even though it’s packing that all too casual 1GHz dual-core processor under the hood, we’re still seeing some hints of slowdown and lag while navigating around its live panel littered homescreen. Making itself unique versus other versions, this T-Mobile bound tablet features lightning fast 4G HSPA+ data speeds to appease even the most demanding web surfers out there.

If you’re already drooling over this one, you might want to go chomp down on some food to calm your appetite seeing that there is no concrete release date attached to it – though, it’s reportedly coming “in time for the holidays.” Plus, there’s no word with pricing, but if we’d have to guess, it would probably be competitive to the one that Verizon is asking for its 4G LTE enabled version.
