The next addition to Samsung’s lineup of Galaxy Tabs will apparently be featuring the latest tablet OS Google has to offer, with news breaking that the Tab 10.1 will be sporting Android 3.1 upon arrival.
The free tablet giveaway of choice at this year’s Google I/O conference, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be the direct successor to the original seven-inch Galaxy Tab, and will also mark Samsung’s first attempt at a large-size tablet. It debuted at this year’s Mobile World Congress, where TabletPCReview was able to get some hands on time with the Tab 10.1.
Android 3.1 was announced earlier in May, and will bring both fun and functional updates such as the ability to resize widgets, a revamped task switcher, a cloud music service through Music Beta, and the added ability for an Android tablet to act as a USB host. We’re currently checking out all of these new updates to Honeycomb, so keep an eye out for our impressions article in the very near future.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Android 3.1 and all, should be available on June 8, with prices starting at $399 for the 16 GB model.
