The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has just appeared on Best Buy's website. Although it has the very vague "coming soon" date attached to its page, the fact that it's there at all is a signal that date is not far off.

In addition, the site offers a lot more detail on the device, including the fact that it will ship with Android 3.1, rather than 3.0.1. The site also lists the full specs (below).

Here are the blurbs Best Buy put on the sale page:

Let's see how this stacks up against the ASUS Transformer, it's the one to beat! I'm a fan of sammy products so I was excited to hear they were making tablets. It's interesting that they didn't go with the ARMv7 like in the galaxy s II. On a debbie downer note, it's hard to get too excited about this right after reading the kal-el article.

Now you're just mashing it!
