Samsung is facing severe competition from other Android tablet makers, Apple Inc., HP and BlackBerry maker RIM.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 was first released in February but at that time Samsung showcased a rather bulkier frame measuring 0.43-inch thick. After Apple launched its game-changing lighter and slimmer iPad 2, Samsung changed its Galaxy Tab 10.1 to an ultra-thin beauty flaunting an 8.6mm (0.33-inch) thickness and weighing a mere 1.3 pounds.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 is all set to bring the sweetness of Android Honeycomb on Verizon's 4G LTE. Verizon confirmed the svelte beauty from the Samsung camp will be available on its 4G network from Thursday.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 features a 10.1-inch display with 1280x800 screen resolution. It is powered by a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset and offers 1GB RAM and comes in 16/32/64 GB internal memory configuration.

It also features an 3MP rear-facing and 2MP front facing cameras. The tablet offers 1080p video playback support. And in spite packing of these superlative features, the tablet is mere 0.33-inch in thickness and weighs 1.3 pounds.

The top 10 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 contenders are: Apple iPad 2, Motorola Xoom, RIM PlayBook, HTC EVO View 4G, HP TouchPad, Toshiba Thrive, Lenovo IdeaPad K1, Cisco Cius, LG G-Slate and Acer's Iconia Tab A500. These tablets sport form-factors ranging from 7-inch to 10.1-inch.
