The best competitor to the Apple iPad 2 so far, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Josh Miller/CNET

I posted a full review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 last week. Today, the tablet finally goes on sale nationwide . On Thursday, I posted a comparison blog and video featuring the Tab 10.1 and the iPad 2.

Sure, that's a lot of coverage, but what do you expect for what some highly astute individuals are calling the iPad 2 of Honeycomb tablets ? The Tab 10.1 is the closest any other vendor has come to matching Apple's thin, elegant iPad 2 design.

Also, the device is one of the first to use Samsung's new panel technology, Plane to Line Switching (PLS). According to Samsung, the new tech offers improved viewing angles over the more traditional In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels used by most other tablets, including the iPad 2.

Follow the link above or the one coming at the end of this sentence to see what we thought of the PLS screen and all else the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has to offer .
