The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will go on sale at UK retailers in six weeks time, the gadget maker has confirmed.

Sammy’s Honeycomb 3.1 powered tablet’s release date has been officially announced as August 4th, when it’ll be available SIM free and on carriers’ contract deals.

In something of a boon for custom skins sceptics, the Tab 10.1 will run the vanilla version of Google’s 3.1 tablet OS out of the box. Touchwiz will, however, be available at a later date – if you like that sort of thing.

Other standout features of the Tab, which is slimmer and lighter than the iPad 2, include its titular 10.1-inch 1280x800 WXGA display, plus a three megapixel rear mounted camera and a secondary two megapixel snapper for video calls.

It’s also home to powerful dual speakers and offers the option to add extra input devices, such as games controllers, mice and trackpads.

Buyers will be able to choose from Wi-Fi and 3G-enabled versions, as well as 16GB,32GB and 64G storage options.
