[Video] Galaxy Tab 10.1 - The Sexiest Tablet Since the iPad 2

Authored by: Steven Blum — May 11, 2011

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 --perhaps the first worthy opponent to the iPad 2 in terms of form, weight and feel -- was passed out to 5,000 cheering attendees at the Google I/O conference, and it's pretty easy to understand their enthusiasm. 

The tablet itself is an Nvidia Tegra 2, dual-core gadget running a pure Google version of Honeycomb -- which kind of sucks, but fine for anyone looking for a sleek, sexy device to root.

About those looks...the 10.1 has a classy textured plastic back, which is easily grippable, and is super-duper thin at just .44 inches. It's also got a slick 10.1 inch screen surrounded by a 0.75-inch black bezel and silver aluminum outline at its edge. Weight-wise, the 10.1 is lighter than the iPad2, weighing 1.24 pounds compared to the iPad 2's 1.32 pounds.

In other words, it's one sexy mofo. Peep the video for a better understanding:

    AndroidPIT has no national bent, and we are, indeed, for all English speakers. Next time I'll convert to metrics. :)

    Is this an USA only blog or a blog for English speakers all around the world?

    I ask because only the United States still uses inches and pounds. Every other country on the planet (including Great Britain) moved to metric measurement.
