The original Tab sold 2 million units in just 3 months.
Featuring Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Tab 10.1 will have a 10.1" WXGA TFT LCD display with 1280x800 resolution and run on a dual-core 1GHz processor.
Samsung says the device will weigh just 1.24 pounds, and will have a standard 8MP camera with 1080p recording support and a 2MP front-side camera. Available in either 16GB or 32GB, the device will not have any USB or HDMI ports, and use a proprietary charging cable.
Says DJ Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Sales & Marketing (via TS):
As a leader in the Android-powered tablet market, Samsung is committed to providing a variety of feature-rich, always-on devices. The Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is a valuable addition to our expanding portfolio of smart media devices. Sporting a large 10.1 screen and dual surround-sound speakers, it enables users to enjoy multimedia to the maximum extent without having to compromise mobility.
The device will launch next month in Europe and Asia but there is no word on a U.S. launch or the price.
