Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 pops up on YouTube; runs Honeycomb without a hitch
Remember when the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was just a shiny tablet locked behind a glass wall? Well, not anymore. Samsung's 10-inch slate is already popping here and there on the web in all its beauty, and we finally get to see it booted up and running Android 3.0 Honeycomb with pride. Just recently, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 starred in a hands-on on YouTube so we thought you may be interested in seeing the device in action.

Whoever was the guy lucky enough to play around with the Samsung Galaxy 10.1, we thank him for recording a hands-on and posting it on YouTube for the whole world to watch. In the 5-minute long video, we get to see Google's Honeycomb powering Samsung's upcoming 10-inch tablet, and sure enough, it appears to be running seamlessly. We also get to see a side-by-side waistline comparison between the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Apple's iPad 2 where it becomes obvious how marginal the thickness difference between the two devices really is.

Unfortunately, we are not exactly sure what the narrator is saying since our Vietnamese is not as good as we wish it was. Nevertheless, we would still recommend you to check out the video, which we have embedded for you below, and hope that there will be more of them to come soon.

I'm done with Samsung. I got screwed over with the Fascinate and I told myself I will never purchase another Samsung product. :( Just my personal opinion.

yes, blame Samsung for verizon to bing up the Fascinate which is the main reason why the fascinate still don't have froyo.

its not samsung's fault that VZW demanded bing and other things. The manufacturer doesnt get last say on the device.. the carrier does. Go yell at VZW, cuz samsung has already started pushing out 2.3 to GalaxyS.

Yes it looks ultra sweet. I just hope Samsung makes a 7 inch tablet with the same specs as the 8.9 & the 10.1 inch tablets. I need to get my wife one for her job but the 8.9 & the 10.1 are just too big to put in her purse. All she would need is a protective sleeve to drop the tablet in & then straight into the purse. I almost got her the original Galaxy Tab but I am hoping for a dual-core one instead! Let's hope Samsung comes out with a 7 inch dual-core real soon! It would be perfect for her!

Nice tab but still I prefer 8.9 and galaxy tab 7" why samsung didn't make another 7" tab with honeycomb 3.0 instead of 8.9! That tab was nice but need some update and increasing the screen fps instead of 53 fps and some dual core flavor with 1280x720p video shoot:)

Did Sammy change the rear camera back up to 8 mpixels? The first edition of the 10.1 had an 8mp camera but the new super thin model was said to have a smaller 3mp camera? I would be more interested in this tab if the camera is capable of 8mp. I hope that dude in the video is correct.
