Couldn't find the other thread (if there was one).

Samsung announced the Galaxy tab 8.9 and the (new) galaxy tab 10.1

Specs for the new 10.1:

HSPA+ 21Mbps 850/900/1900/2100, EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900
Android™ 3.0 (Honeycomb)
10.1” WXGA 1280x800
1GHz Dual Core application processor
Camera- Main(Rear): 3.0-Mega Pixel Camera AF with LED Flash
Front : 2.0-Mega Pixel Camera
Video Format : MPEG4/H263/H264,Divx/Xvid
Playback : 1080p Full HD Video @ 30fps
Recording : 720p HD Video
3.5mm Ear Jack, Surround Sound Stereo Speakers
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
Quickoffice HD Editor
Google Mobile Services: Android Market, Google Talk Video Chat, Google Maps, Books, etc.
Samsung TouchWiz UX, Samsung Mini Apps Tray,, Social Hub, Music Hub, Readers Hub
Adobe Flash Player 10.2
Bluetooth technology v 2.1 + EDR
USB 2.0
WiFi 802.11 (a/b/g/n)

Memory: 16G / 32G / 64G, microSD slot (up to 32GB)
256.6 x 172.9 x 8.6 mm, 595g
Battery: 6800mAh

A couple of big points: 8.6mm thick! PLS display, more video codecs, micro sdcard slot, but not launching till June!

I was waiting for this announcement to decide whether to get the Xoom or wait, but I didn't expect to have to wait this long. I'm also not a fan of the touchwiz ui, but I guess that can be changed.

Apparently the old 10.1 will still be launched in international markets, so maybe we (or aus) will get that.

Heres a link for pics -
