Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

We're in New York City ahead of the reader meet-up with our pals at Samsung and just snagged ourselves a look at the retail version of the Wifi-only Galaxy Tab 10.1, which will hit the Union Square Best Buy in New York City on June 8, and nationwide June 17.

For all intents and purposes, what you see here is exactly what was handed out to developers at Google IO (see our full review of the special edition Galaxy Tab 10.1). Same Tegra 2 system on a chip, same hardware (thin and light!), and same Honeycomb. OK, not the same Honeycomb. This guy's running Android 3.1, and it'll have it at launch time.

One thing it won't have, however, is Samsung's Touchwiz user experience, but that'll be coming in an over-the-air update later. (No, we don't know when.)

And because so many of you have asked, we'll put this in a sentence all its own: There's no microSD card. But you do have a couple of versions you can purchase. The 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 will run you $499, and the 32GB version costs $599.

So there you have it, folks. For those of you not able to come to the event in New York, we bring the event to you.
