Google experience device

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a Google Experience device, meaning that you get the stock Android experience and not Samsung's custom TouchWiz user interface. This should prevent any delays with future OS updates.

If the Galaxy Tab's 7-inch display is too small for you, then perhaps you'll find this 10.1-inch display much more to your liking. It has a WXGA 1280x800-pixel resolution and also has a gyroscope, accelerometer, digital compass, and proximity sensor.

HSPA+ support

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a quad-band GSM device with HSPA+ support--you can see a SIM card slot here on the side. Samsung says it currently has no plans for a CDMA model.

The back of the tablet features a textured surface so it doesn't feel as slippery as the previous Tab. There are also grooves where you can place your hands when holding the tablet in landscape mode.

Also on back is the 8-megapixel camera, which is capable of recording 1080p HD video.

Dual-core processor

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is equipped with Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset. The dual-core processor will allow for faster browsing, better gaming and graphics, and improved performance overall.

The dual-core processor also means the tablet should be able to better handle multitasking.
