Wired: First Look – New Samsung 10-inch Tablet

Charlie Sorrel says the new Samsung tablet looks like a toy, but has a great screen with higher resolution than iPad, and it’s the first product to run a new version of Android designed especially for tablets.

“BARCELONA — The expected deluge of tablets has started with Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, a big-screen version of the seven-inch Galaxy Tab which has sold about two million units. The Tab 10.1 — named somewhat awkwardly for its screen size — is the first hot ticket at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, and we went hands-on.

“The most important part of this tablet is the operating system. It’s running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the first version of Android designed for tablets. Honeycomb turns out to be pretty sweet, and as far away from Apple’s iOS as you could imagine. In fact, its closer to something like Windows XP in terms of the look and feel, albeit with a very responsive, finger-friendly touch interface.”
