Vodafone snapped up the Galaxy 10.1v across Europe / UK and Australia a month or two ago and while I can’t recall any exact release dates, it has just got one in Australia – May 4, with pre-orders starting on April 20 and those who pre-order get a free Samsung case. Up-front price is $729, or $259 on a 1 year plan, or free on a 2 year plan. There are a couple of reviews up already at SMH (Aus) and TechRadar (UK) and a hands on from PC Authority.
From PC Authority’s hands on review.
The10.1v is the first 10-inch Galaxy Tab model that was showcased prior to the announcement. Once the 2 was released, Samsung went back to the drawing board and released a thinner version, which is the new , without the ‘v’. While the 10.1v is thicker than the new 10.1 and lacks its MicroSD card slot, it retains the higher 8MP rear webcam and records in 1080p as opposed to 720p. Other than that both tablets share the same core specs – a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, WiFi, GPS and a 3G radio.
