The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will launch on 4 August in the UK, with a spokesperson saying the Honeycomb tablet will launch in Ireland later this summer.
The tablet will run on Android 3.1, the next update to Google’s tablet OS.
It will be equipped with a 1GHz dual core processor with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip, will offer a 10.1-inch WXGA TFT LCD screen and will be just 8.6mm thick.
It will offer 1080p HD video capabilities and will support Flash playback.
The UK launch has been confirmed for 4 August for “a range” of retailers. A Samsung spokesperson said the exact date for the Irish launch hasn’t been confirmed, but that it should arrive later this summer.
Samsung will also launch the Galaxy Tab 8.9, a mid-sized tablet between the original 7-inch device and the larger 10-inch device, later this year in the UK.
