We received some information a week or so ago pointing to this fact, but we wanted to confirm it a bit more before posting about it. Well today is the day, today I was sent the lovely little pic you see above, which is from Vodafone’s July catalogue, showing the newest member of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1“.
It seems the slimmer Tab 10.1 is hitting Vodafone in the not to distant future. What it doesn’t show is an actual date or a price. However information we also received does seem to indicate it could be apart of bundle deals or very aggressive pricing.

With this new brand spanking tab almost here, What does this mean for existing 10.1v customers? It probably means you will be forgotten, and I would suspect more then you already have been to date, which is not a lot considering everyone involved with the 10.1v seems to have forgotten about it also and have thrown their hands in the air, particularly in regards to the Honeycomb 3.1 update for the already discontinued tablet. Let’s hope the new 10.1 doesn’t suffer the same fate or the sameissues suffered by its predecessor.

According to me, It has already launched on Vodafone with very reasonable price. So if anyone want to buy this tablet, So you can go for Vodafone.

It’s probably not a great idea for Nozx to be telling you where he works when he’s feeding you information Vodaphone isn’t ready to announce yet, Dy4me. It’s not rocket science, mate. 😉

With the USB connector and USB host mode for the galaxy tab, you can plug in a USB drive, so there is room to expand the memory, just not entirely that portable and streamlined

Can anyone confirm is this unit has a micro SD slot?

Already imported this bad boy 2 weeks ago from the US – got it off Mobicity – 32GB Wifi Grey – came in about 3 days of purchasing it and WOW… It is so fast and everything i read about honeycomb being choppy or buggy is incorrect. Came shipped with 3.1 and no TouchWiz. It is more than i expected. Given how easily it also links with the wifi hotspot off my HTC desire on NextG I am not disappointed i didnt get 3G. Have compared it next to an iPad 2 and this thing kicks it in almost every… Read more »

Unless these tablets are 100% guaranteed to get an Ice Cream Sandwich update, they’re not worth it.

Honeycomb is going to be a dead and buried OS soon enough. Unless manufacturers come out and say they’re going to update their tablets to ICS, I won’t bother.

yes it is the 3g. the 3g version has already been released in Sweden and 4 aug in the UK. so no reason we shouldnt see a 3g version here soon.

There has been some confusion about this model due to samsung changing the NAME of a older product and the new product taking its name. If you look at the UK website handtec, http://www.handtec.co.uk/product.php/4368/samsung-galaxy-tab-10-1–16gb–sim-free-unlocked-

The specs and model number for the arriving in Aug unit is what we call the 10.1v, ie 8MP camera, 599g weight etc.

I asked them about it and they say its what they got told is coming. Now I’m not willing to spend that much money incase its a 10.1v, cause I don’t want a 10.1v! I’ll wait for the site to be corrected

You always knew that the 10.1v was going to be kicked to the scape heap before it even went on sale. Samsung had kicked it to the scape heap before it was released. So I don’t really know why you guys are complaining!

Well that’s simple. Because it is technically capable of taking the update. Also, early adopters show a certain level of brand/tech loyalty and they feel they should be rewarded for that.

This is SAMSUNG, they often forgot about older phones… i7500, samsuns galaxy S in the USA was forgotten about for a long time, forgive me if I prejudged them.

I’ve been looking to transfer my old 3 mobile broadband number to a tablet plan for so long, not that my local Vodafone stores seemed to care; at least they weren’t even given any stock and never had any point of sale on display. If Vodafone can’t keep their stores stocked, then I’ll pass for a more stable network.
