Despite Samsung’s D.J. Lee suggesting that Samsung may go back to the drawing board to make adjustments to it’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 to be more competitive with the iPad 2, it seems the original version has met FCC approval. Once a device makes that FCC approval it’s usually just “in the coming weeks” before it is launched.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has the model number P7100 very close to the P700 that was the model number for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ version.
The device approved has support for the 850mhz and 1900mhz spectrum which means it’s compatible with US networks although it’s unclear what networks it’s headed to.
In recent comments to the press Lee suggested they may seek to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 thinner and possibly change the pricing. Motorola has been criticized by several media outlets, journalists and customers for the pricing of the Motorola Xoom suggesting it’s in no way competitive with iPad pricing. Steve Jobs announced on Wednesday that the new iPad 2 would have the same pricing as the original ipad.
