Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Limited Edition Unboxing and Video

As announced at the keynote, all of the attendees at this year’s Google I/O get to take home a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch tablet, which won’t be available to the general public until June 8th. We just got ours and thought you’d enjoy a preview in the form of a short unboxing.

A couple of things we noticed right out of the box: first, this tablet is very light. While technically a hair heavier than the iPad 2, when holding them at the same time the difference is imperceptible. It’s also nice and thin with rounded edges, making it very comfortable to hold.

While this special edition Tab has a cute Android pattern on the back, consumer versions will come with a plain white back, like the 7-inch Galaxy Tab.

The overall look is very clean, elegant, and minimalist, with just two buttons on top (power and volume toggle) plus a headphone jack. The unit is meant to be held in landscape mode, with a 10-pin connector on one long side. It’ll be interesting to see the docks for this one. Other than that, there are speakers on the right and left sides.

I don’t see an SD card slot, and I haven’t yet been able to get the back of the unit off, so it looks like users won’t be able to add their own SD cards. Luckily, the Tab comes with 32GB onboard.

We’ll have more with the Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch soon, including a full review. In the meantime see our video and gallery below.
