Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Unwrapping

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a beautiful device, and it's thinner and lighter than the iPad 2. I just got it in the mail from Amazon, and in honor of Apple product unwrap documentaries around the world, I decided to post some pictures of the unpacking process.

Note that this is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, not the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which is its slightly fatter and older brother.

For some good reviews of this tablet, check out Anandtech's review which calls it "the sleekest Honeycomb tablet" and ArsTechnica's piece which says it's a "whole new world".

I've already ordered another one of these as a gift.

Click on the pics to get the full-size view.

Package arrives from Amazon:



Opened package

Cables - there are in-ear headphones,  power adapter, a special Samsung cable (looks like an iPod/iPhone cable) and a manual

Backside wrapped

Backside unwrapped

Turning it on for the first time

Samsung logo on startup - apologies for the glare, I work in a pretty bright office

It's soo thin

Home screen

Google Maps - correctly picks up my location as the Googleplex

Google Maps 3D View

Headphone jack on top

Speakers on each side

Samsung connector (iPhone/iPod-like) on the bottom

The tablet arrived with 4% remaining battery so I had to plug it in pretty soon after it arrived. In addition to my Galaxy, I also have a Motorola Xoom that Google gave me, and compared to the Galaxy it seems outdated - it's heavier, thicker, and less pretty.

Wow that looks razor thin.
