Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 launches at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy

Samsung’s second tablet device, the Samsung Tab 10.1, has gone on sale today at Carphone Warehouse ahead of its launch at Best Buy UK later this week.

Despite the possibility of an EU-wide ban of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on the 9 September over the alleged infringement of patents and trademarks of Apple’s iPad and iPhone products, the manufacturer has launched the tablet with one of the UK’s biggest mobile retailers.

Apple accused Samsung of copying the design and functionality of its iPad and iPhone products in their Galaxy tablet and smartphone range in April this year. Samsung is counter-suing Apple over what it claims are infringements of some of its wireless patents.

Despite the dispute, consumers eager to get their hands on the tablet can head to Carphone Warehouse stores or the Carphone Warehouse website from today and the Best Buy website from Friday (9 September).

The device, which Samsung claims is the world’s thinnest mobile tablet of its screen size, comes with a range of accessories including a keyboard, desk dock and in-car charger.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is powered by the latest Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS, features a1GHz dual-core processor and will be available in 3G and Wi-Fi-only variants.

Best Buy Europe CEO Andrew Harrison said: ‘The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is truly paving the way for upgrades on features in tablets to meet the changing demands of consumers on the go. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 fills the gap in the market between laptops, ereaders, TVs and smartphones, combining all in one with a high definition screen and capabilities. We’re looking forward to seeing the great reactions from our customers when it hits stores.’

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available now from Carphone Warehouse stores and its website for £399 for the 16GB tablet Wi-Fi version or from £499 on a range of different contracts.
