Samsungs new one definitely doesn’t look like an Apple device anymore. It’s available in Europe starting on the 8th of August and in the US one week later.

It comes with a pen, a micro SD slot, Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a back facing 5 Megapixel and a front facing 1.9 Megapixel  camera. All powered by a QuadCore processor with 2GB RAM. The 10.1″ touchscreen features 1280×800 pixels.

It’s available with WLAN, HSPA+ (for the 3G-Version), Bluetooth and GPS. A infrared Transmitter, in  combination with Samsungs Smart-Remote-App, allows to use it as a universal remote for your Stereo or TV.
