Samsung had promoted the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with its sleek, slim form factor and the company’s new Samsung experience (similar to TouchWiz but not quite as dominating and for tablets) on top of Android 3.0 Honeycomb at CTIA, and now Samsung Mobile has confirmed via Twitter that the slim 10.1-inch tablet will be headed to U.S. soil on June 8th. Like the Apple iPad and the Motorola Xoom, the tablet will be coming in various configurations and the WiFi edition will be the first to land come early June. In a move to be more competitive with Apple’s tablet–the rival Honeycomb-powered Motorola Xoom with 4G LTE support was criticized as being overpriced at $800 on Verizon Wireless–Samsung will be mirroring the prices offered by the iPad. With the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab 10.1, the company will offer the 16 GB version for $499 and a 32 GB version for $599.
AT CTIA, the company also introduced a Galaxy Tab 8.9 with an 8.9-inch display. The company still has not confirmed when that model will be coming.
