Samsung took that brief amount of time in between the iPad 2 launch March 11th, and their own Galaxy Tab 10.1 unveiling at CTIA 2011 today, and made some big improvements.
In that short time they completely redesigned the Galaxy Tab 10.1, made it lighter than iPad, made it thinner than iPad, and also introduced its little brother, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
The Galaxy Tab family is now complete with the original and now seemingly clunky 7″ first generation Galaxy Tab, the new 8.9″ and 10.1″ models, in addition to the two upcoming 4″ and 5″ Galaxy Player tablets.
What a huge week for Samsung fans! With that said, let’s have a look at how the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 stacks up.
