Mobile World Congress 2014: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

2:08 /

Twice the size of the original Galaxy Tab, Samsung's second act may also be twice as fast, thanks to its dual processors.

-Hey everyone, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com, and we're here in Barcelona, Spain, for Mobile World Congress, and we've got a special first look here of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. This is their second tablet and it's gonna exist along with the 7-inch Galaxy Tab. But, as you can see, this one has a 10.1-inch display here--really gorgeous. It's one of the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablets available. It's 11 millimeters thin and weighs about 21 ounces, so, very nice here. On the back, they've also added a texture here, so, it's not as slick as the first Galaxy Tab, which is nice; also got this little indentations, so, it fits nicely with the hand. Feature-wise, it's running Android Honeycomb and it's a Google Experience device, so that means, no custom UI, no TouchWiz on here, which I'm sure some of you will be very happy to hear. It's got a 2-megapixel camera on the front for video calls, as well as an 8-megapixel camera on back, and it does 1080p HD video recording. It also has a dual-core processor. It's using NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset, so, you should see faster performance as well as browsing on here and other benefits. It is an HSPA-Plus device. They're only announcing the global announcement here at Mobile World Congress. We do know Vodafone will be one of the carriers to offer it. No word yet on US availability or carrier support, but hopefully, that'll be something that will be added into the future because it looks like a very cool device. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
