As Samsung had promised at the CTIA, they’ve announced the retail launch of Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the United States. Starting June 8, Best Buy Union Square will exclusively sell the larger-sized tablet in New York City. However starting from June 17, the tablet will be available nationwide at Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, Amazon.com, Micro Center, Tiger Direct and Newegg with a price of $499 for the 16GB and $599 for the 32GB.
This 8.6mm tablet supports Wi-Fi-only, runs Android 3.1 OS and features 10.1-inch WXGA display, 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 3MP rear and 2MP front facing camera, full HD playback, Media/Social/Readers Hub support, DLNA, Bluetooth and 7,000mAh battery.
Although this Galaxy Tab boasts Samsung’s customized TouchWiz UI, the tablet will be released with stock Android UI and will get the new user interface via a software update.
Samsung will also release a Sprint variant in mid-summer.
