Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: Video shows surprisingly decent device

Here at OSM we’ve been keeping you informed about all the latest developments with the next Samsung Galaxy Tab, or as it’s officially known, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. If you think that this may be the tablet for you then today you’re in for a treat as we have news of a really good video look that shows a surprisingly decent device, and you can see the video below our story.

I say surprisingly decent as following the recent launch of the iPad 2 and its prices, we reported on Samsung’s executive VP, Lee Don-Joo, who said the company needed to “improve the parts that are inadequate” on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This then led to speculation that the prices for the 10.1 were being reconsidered. It’s likely that the iPad 2 impressed so much that Samsung realized it was going to have to up its game with the Galaxy Tab 10.1. However it was later noted that these revisions, whatever they may be, would not delay the release date for Samsung’s new tablet.

News of the new 12-minute video came to us from Vlad Savov over on Engadget, sourced from Android HD, and with all the talk about the 10.1 being “inadequate” we had wondered what to expect but as Savov notes, it’s certainly a handsome enough and an “undeniably powerful device.” AndroidHD were fortunate enough to spend many hours with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the resulting video should please a lot of people who were wondering how it would fare.

Cory Gunther over on Android Community also reports on the video which shows the Galaxy Tab 10.1 being used for everyday life and notes that everything is shown in action and “working beautifully.” The video also details specs such as the 8-megapixel camera, 1GHz dual-core processor and Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. It certainly looks as though the 10.1 could impress an awful lot of people who may not have previously considered the Samsung tablet. Now all we need to know is the price and release date but you can be sure we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more.

What are your thoughts on this look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? Could you be persuaded to purchase this tablet rather than the iPad 2 or Motorola Xoom? Why not let us know with your comments.
