The slate PC is experiencing a renaissance as dozens of manufacturers are releasing their respective versions of the mobile computing devices this year. In particular, tablet PCs running the mobile OS Android are surging, with Motorola, ViewSonic, Asus, Visio and HTC all joining Samsung in the rush to catch the front-runner, Apple’s iPad. Samsung was one of the first vendors to offer a contender with the Galaxy Tab, and now is releasing an updated model running Android 3.0, the version of Google’s mobile Linux OS that’s designed to optimize tablet performance. EnterpriseMobileToday.com has all the details on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, as well as current research on this emerging trend.
The new version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will include a 10.1-inch screen, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, dual high-res cameras and will run Android 3.0 — the mobile OS backed by Google that’s dubbed Honeycomb that’s designed to optimize tablet PC performance.
Details of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the follow-up to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, were just revealed by the electronics giant at the Mobile World Congress conference, though launch dates for the U.S. and pricing have yet to be disclosed. Asia and Europe, however, will get the new Tab in March on the Vodafone network.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will offer 16GB or 32GB of storage, has a front-facing 2-megapixel camera as well as an 8-megapixel one on back, a 1280 x 800-resolution 10.1-inch TFT display and weighs 1.2 pounds and is less than a half-inch thick.
