Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch tablet will go on sale on June 8 for a starting price of $499 for the 16GB model. However, even though the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available starting on June 8, it will only be available at Union Square in New York. For the rest of us, we'll have to wait until June 17 to get our hands on the tablet.

Samsung plans to ship the tablet with Android 3.1. Other key features include a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, and a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The tablet weighs about 1.25 pounds. Samsung has also said that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will receive a series of over-the-air upgrades sometime after launch that will make the device more powerful, entertaining and secure.

A 32GB version will also be available for $599. Verizon Wireless will also offer 16GB and 32GB versions of the tablet. These tablets will be tied to the carrier's 4G network. With a two-year contract, you'll be able to pick up the Verizon Wireless 16GB tablet for $529.99 or the 32GB variant for $629.99. Verizon Wireless will let customers pre order the Galaxy Tab 10.1 starting June 8.

This is looking like a sweet tablet. Samsung definitely has the right idea in mind by offering better features than the iPad.

Interesting no more hardware buttons on this one for home apps etc. Looks nice though the price is still way too high for me to afford or consider.

I hope more companies release tablets that can compete against the iPad.  This would mean increase competition and hopefully, lower tablet prices for everyone... akin to the drop in iPod prices when competing companies started releasing their own portable music players.

yep I still think that pricing on say the 16GB version is still a bit too high at this time. Wonder how or if the price may drop a bit later with some of the competition from Toshiba and possibly others
