Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi and 3G flavors dated for UK launch

Samsung UK has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will arrive in the country from August 4 2011, with both WiFi-only and 3G versions promised. The 10.1-inch Android 3.1 Honeycomb slate went on sale in WiFi form in the US earlier this month, though is currently not available with integrated 3G connectivity.

In the UK, however, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have quadband (850/900/1900/2100) HSPA+ support for up to 21Mbps speeds, network depending. There'll also be quadband GSM/EDGE and the usual WiFi b/g/n. Samsung is promising a range of accessories on sale at the same time.

Meanwhile, Samsung has also confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 – with roughly the same hardware as the 10.1 model, but a smaller 8.9-inch display – will arrive in the UK later in 2011. No word on pricing for either tablet at this stage, though we do know that Vodafone UK will be offering the 10.1-inch 3G version.
