TabletConnect has not reported much on the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets. With a press release launched this morning, we are providing some details. There will be two versions: 8.9 & 10.1 which of course refers to the size. The WiFi version of the 10.1 will launch on June 8th. Pricing is as follows:
16GB WiFi, $499
32GB WiFi, $599
The two Galaxy Tabs will sport Android Honeycomb and will have dual-core processor (no confirmation if Tegra2). However, unlike the Motorola Xoom, Samsung is adding its own skin called TouchWix 4.0. So one will not have a pure Android Honeycomb experience.
Pricing for the 8.9 will be slightly less:
16GB WiFi, $469
32GB WiFi, $569
One noticeable thing on these tablets is that they are very thin - measuing .33 inches thick which is .01 inches thinner than Apple's iPad 2. Pricing is competitive so we'll see how this tablet plays out.
