Thin Samsung Galaxy Tab not coming to UK
US Samsung customers to get thinner Galaxy Tabs, UK customers stuck with old model.
After the US launch of the Apple iPad 2, bods at Samsung were worried, with Samsung mobile division's Lee Dong-Joo commenting publically that Sammy "will have to improve the parts that are inadequate" as "Apple made [the iPad 2] very thin."
The result of these improvements was revealed just weeks later at the CTIA conference in Florida, where Samsung launched the new new version of its Galaxy Tab, still called the 10.1, but measuring in at just 8.6mm thin - 0.2mm thinner than Apple's tablet - and weighing in at a similarly iPad 2-beating 595g. The only thing to suffer is the camera, coming down from the MWC-era Tab 10.1's 8MP to 3MP.
