Where to buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the best price?


We were just alerted by friend, Android kernel hacker and site reader pershoot that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB (refurbished)  is available on with a savings of $150.00.  If I hadn’t just bought myself a Wacom Cintiq 12w I’d be all over this.  It is currently our highest rated tablet (non iPad)  you can read the review here.  This is the tablet that Apple took to court in Europe to prevent its sale.  Their claim was that it infringed on “their” form factor. The 2001 by Stanley Kubrick prior art defense (youtube video)  is a classic.  The hardware is that excellent. Clean, thin light and minimal.  I wish all Android tablets were as well pout together as this one.

Pershoot has one of these incredible Android tablets that he picked up at Google IO and he has been doing a lot of kernel hacking to it. In his words:

my kernel really oomphed it
its nice to hold for sure
really thats what tabs need to be
light and thin
it should be like a sheet of paper if possible!

Maybe he isn’t Shakespeare, but then again Shakespeare definitely couldn’t hack a kernel like this guy!  If you buy one be sure to download his custom work to use on it for a considerable speed boost.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tablet can be bought  for $349.99 today only  (Sept 14 2011) at
