Android's hottest new tablet - the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - is now available for pre-order at Best Buy. As we've heard before, New Yorkers have an especially sweet deal: Best Buy will be opening up sales today at noon at their Union Square store, and the first 200 purchasers will also get a free leather pouch. For the rest of us, the Tab is slated to go on sale on June 17.

Pricing is also what we've heard before: $500 for the 16GB model and $600 for 32GB. Both models can be purchased in either white or metallic gray, as well. A quick rehash of the specs:

  • Android 3.1
  • Dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 T20 processor
  • 10.1" 1280x800 TFT screen
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • 3MP camera in back, 2MP in front

In addition, the Tab 10.1 will pack Samsung's new TouchWiz 4/UX skin. While the thought of a custom skin might make people cringe, it may not be so bad.

Contemplating the purchase? Perhaps Artem's deep-dive review can help you make up your mind. Alternatively, head straight to the source link to check out the product listings and order it.

    lol wow black and white ummm just like the ipad, ever heard of being original samsung. Lets hope the corners of these ones dont start coming loose after a week

    • kevin

      jaun, if you really wanted to talk about being original you'd make a new argument rather than rehash the same one that is seen EVERYWHERE on the internet. yawn.

      If you don't like it, then don't buy it. Either using or holding your dollars makes a greater statement than just complaining on a blog.

      We get it, you like to copy everyone else on the internet... now, do you really have an argument? no? didn't think so.

      Yes, clearly they should have put their starting models out in fluorescent green and paisley.

  • TR

    The Asus Transformer has better features albeit a little thicker but is also much cheaper. A no brainer. Sorry Samsung. With the market with many choices now, price for the feature set is the differentiator

  • ddp

    Honestly, I really, REALLy, want the 32GB, but I'll wait for some reviews...

    Lol don't take it personal dude I'm sure your gonna be lining up for the I pad wanna look a like Samsung tab. I on the other hand took your advice and not bought one and I'm rocking my brown color Asus tf101 which rocks. And just because I'm repeating something that has been said doesn't make it any less true.

      Somehow you also don't know how to reply to posts. Maybe you should re-evaluate this whole 'being on the Internet' thing. I'm not sure you're cut out for it.

  • http://androidpolice.com juan quintero

    again... i dont take it as seriously, as some. I also dont make it a point to harrass and/or attack everyone who posts an opinion different than mine. Im sure you were able to follow the thread and figure out the content of my reply and to whom it was addressed.

    • roger

      I'm confused, what are you talking about? Are you trying to reply to someone? There's a button for that.

    Article is completely wrong. They only had the 16gb white version for sale and the Tab comes with stock 3.1. Touch wiz will be available in a software update. I was at the Best buy store today and got mines.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      You can pre-order all 4 variants.

  • Epsilon

    Anyone know when Accessories and prices will be announced?

    Spelled Android wrong in the post's tags!

    I was really looking forward to this. I hate the zoom, but then a I got a chance to play with a friends tab (smaller one, 7.9" I think). Man, it was just as bad. After talking to him, and playing with a different friends iPad I decided to go with an iPad. Great tablet.

  • D.Munson

    Has anyone heard of a future external storage port for the Samsung Galaxy Tab series?

    • D.Munson

      ...not that 32GBs are enough, I just like the freedom of storing my info on an SD card.
