Samsung has taken the wraps off two new Android 3.0 Galaxy Tab computers which are believed to be the thinnest on the market at just 8.6mm in thickness – 0.2mm thinner than the rival iPad 2.
The devices will compete primarily with the Motorola Xoom, which also runs Android 3.0, and could actually beat it on price.
The Wi-Fi only 16GB Galaxy Tab 8.9-inch tablet will be US$469, while the 32GB version will cost US$569. The Wi-Fi only 10.1-inch tablet will cost US$499 for a 16GB version, while the 32GB model will cost US$599. Both models will ship early in the summer.
A 4G version of the new tablet computers are believed to be coming later in the year.
Both tablets will come with a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 1,280 x 800 HD display and will come with a microSD card slot for up to32GB cards.
