Samsung now accepts reservation for 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the 8GB Galaxy S WiFi 5


Heads up tab fanatics! Samsung will now be officially accepting reservations for the 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the 8GB Galaxy S WiFi 5 starting today, August 17, 2011.

A page on Samsung’s official PH website, which can be found here, will be going live to accept pre-orders come 8am today. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 that will be for reservation is the 16GB version which runs on an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core chipset with the latest Android OS update which is the Android 3.1 aka Honeycomb. The Galaxy S WiFi 5 on the other hand is an 8GB mini tablet version of the Galaxy S smartphone which features a 5in display with WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 capabilities.

Reserving any of the two gadgets and owning one of 700 units (yes, its that limited!) of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the Galaxy S WiFi 5 will also entitle its buyers for some discounts and freebies! This reminds me of the recent power supplies sale that I heard of recently.

Update: The Galaxy Tab 10.1 that is available for reservation is a wifi/3g version.

The image above clearly shows that the one they’re offering for reservation is the Galaxy tab 10.1 3g version as it has a sim card slot right at the top or the device. You can visit their official Galaxy tab 10.1 specs page here to learn more about its technical specifications. I’m still trying to get in touch with Samsung regarding this and I’m still awaiting answers.
