The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v and its Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system offer a credible alternative to the iPad 2, but one that falls behind Apple when it comes to general usability and slickness. The Galaxy Tab 10.1v is a nice albeit incomplete-feeling start to life with Honeycomb.

On that front, the fact that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is such a slight slate earns it a disproportionate amount of our approval. Yes, it lacks the ease of wired connectivity other Honeycomb tablets offer, and it doesn’t have a clever battery-equipped Keyboard Dock like the ASUS, but the vast majority of the time it’s bulk – or lack of – that makes the difference. Samsung has made a tablet that feels like a tablet should: science-fiction thin, quality display and lightweight. The somewhat plasticky chassis reminds us of Samsung’s recent smartphones, though is the inevitable compromise to the sub-600g weight, and Android still has its tablet-scale flaws, but overall it’s the hand-feel, which convinces us on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. In fact the biggest competition on that front may be Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab 8.9, offering the same screen resolution in a more compact form factor, which arrives later in the year.

If you’re in the market for a new tablet, you need to do yourself a favor and go hands-on with Honeycomb first. The hardcore Android enthusiast community will enjoy the tablet, and rightfully so, but I don’t think everyday consumers will appreciate the frequent crashes. The BlackBerry PlayBook’s QNX user interface is more fun, more polished, and more intuitive right now. Apple’s iOS is also dead easy to use and has a much more robust application catalog. When it comes down to it, is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 worth buying? If you want the thinnest, sexiest Android tablet available today, then yes — but only if you can get around Honeycomb’s current faults in hopes that coming builds will smooth things out.

Overall it's a bit of a gem then. We've given the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1V a score of 4/5 for the time being. We'll revisit that once we've had a play with a final sample. We'll be looking to see if they've fixed those glitches. Another thing that currently hangs in the balance is the price – it's not been announced yet, and will have the power to make or break the 10.1V as a mass market tablet. But for the time being, this really is a decent Android tablet, and certainly goes a long way towards proving the theory that 2011 will be the year that Android tablets come of age and give the iPad a proper run for its money.

It's lightweight and extremely responsive, but it's hard to overlook the features it is missing

from CNET

With Google's Honeycomb in place, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v is an outstanding device for personal media and web consumption. There isn't much Samsung can do about the sub-par app support for Android tablet so far (but this is bound to improve), though we do think not including HDMI or DLNA in the out-of-the-box experience is missing a trick, to say the least. On top of this, the lack of micro SD card support and a user-replaceable battery isn't going to win favour from those who refuse to buy an iPad for the same reasons...

On top of this, the lack of micro SD card support and a user-replaceable battery isn't going to win favour from those who refuse to buy an iPad for the same reasons.

But our strongest reservation comes from Samsung's own announcement of updated Galaxy Tab models arriving in Q3 2011. Boasting a thinner profile and the possibility of larger storage, good things may come to those who wait.
