     What time is this in London?

    And please make sure to clarify this questions:
    – What kind of screen technology? PLS? IPS? TFT?
    – Does it has MicroSD card slot (for both 10.1 and 8.9)?
    – Does it has MicroUSB port?

    Thanks Phandroid!

      7pm here=3pm there (pretty sure:D)

      • Jamdev12

        He said London not California or Hawaii. It would be 11pm in London as it is 4 hours ahead.

        • brent

          LOL double fail. London is 5 hours ahead of NYC.  

          • brent

            Therefore it would be midnight.. 

        • NightAngel79

          Thats what i meant of course, lol
          Was going from UTC time (which is 4 hours ahead) thought that was london time, though i still had it backwards

      This is about the WiFi-only tab they gave out at Google IO:

      I’m not sure about the type of screen. The initial design was a TFT LCD screen, but they redesigned it quite a bit. It is now much lighter and thinner than the original design (lighter and thinner than iPad 2, i think). But i’m not sure if the screen-type has been re-designed.

      It has only two ‘openings’. One is a regular headphone jack, the other is a proprietary port used for charging, USB and HDMI out. The tabs that we got at Google IO only had a charging/usb cable in the box. Some samsung rep told me that a HDMI adapter cable will be sold when the tab becomes generally available.

      This also means you can’t replace the battery or insert an SD-card. I guess there will be some slot for tabs with 3G or 4G, to insert the SIM-card.

    What about the SGS2?

    • chris125

       Agree hopefully they announce some availability dates

  • Somedude

    I like that back panel better than the Google I/O one.  No USB on this device.  I don’t have it with me right now, so I’m not sure on the SD slot or display question.  I can say the screen looks really nice. :-)

    Eventbrite sells their e-mail address list to spammers. If you’re going to sign up, i recommend using a disposable email address.

    So did I miss something or has Phandroid still never announced who will be getting the Galaxy Tab 10.1 when they’re done testing it? 

    • robjackson81

      E-Mail went out this AM 

  • Kevin Pelletier ♮

    Did phandroid give away the Tab 10.1 that they got at IO yet?

    • Kevin Pelletier ♮

       They just sent out an email saying who the winner is.

  • su2lly

    The gathering in Baltimore last fall was great. I wish I could pull this one off but too much going on right now. I hope someone who attended the phandroid meet up wins a Tab.

  • NightAngel79

    We need to buck up!! Android central is killing us on attendees (it shows everyone who signed up and who referred them) 

  • Paul

    People have posted on several thread asking about the Google I/O giveaway, but it has been a week since the promised announcement and there has been absolute silence from Phandroid.  Was it all just a big trick to get people to sign up to the mailing list?  WTF Phandroid?

    • NightAngel79

       Last response was that the announcement was pushed back to the beginning of this week(i know yesterday was monday)

    • robjackson81

      Winners name/picture appeared in the newsletter sent out today 

  • Collinferreira07

    Sooooo is this the same samsung event that got delayed two days ago, or is this completely different?

  • X3HaloEd

    Why does Phandroid keep posting images of the 10.1v when discussing the 10.1? You’re using old images, and it’s hurting your credibility.
