Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 release date set as May 1st

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been made available for pre-order by Vodafone Australia with the iPad rival scheduled to begin shipping on May 1st.

Originally announced during February’s Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona with a 1GHz dual-core processor and Google’s tablet centric Android 3.0, Honeycomb OS, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 later went on a diet shedding precious millimetres from its form factor following the unveiling of the slim line Apple iPad 2.

Alerting customers who registered interest in the upcoming device online, Vodafone Australia has begun issuing pre-order emails stating the Galaxy Tab 10.1 can be snapped up for a limited time before being made publicly available for pre-release purchase on April 20th. Being offering with a complementary book cover style case, the 10-inch tablet as a standalone device will set wannabe owners down under back a hefty AU$729 (£470).

Whilst no UK release date has yet been given for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, if a May 1st release was rolled out globally we would see both of Samsung’s lead MWC unveilings touch down on the same day as the 1.2GHz dual-core Android 2.3 Galaxy S II smartphone readies itself for a May Day launch.

Can the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 challenge the iPad 2 or is the Apple tablet untouchable atop the tablet ranks? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
