Live in NYC? Go And Grab the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Union Square Today


It’s June 8th, folks, and Samsung initially promised the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be here by now. The only thing they forgot to mention at CTIA was that only those who happen to be in New York City near a Union Square Best Buy store would be able to pick it up between now and June 17th. If you fit the location criteria and have been dying to get your hands on one, sprint down to Union Square and put your $4-$500 (16GB & 32GB WiFi models) down for one. As for the rest of you? June 17th couldn’t get here soon enough. We’ll wake you up from your medically-induced comas when that time comes.(Note: Pre-orders are still going on at

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. thinking about going down there but not sure what the stock situation is like – anybody?

    1. I asked myself, they said they have a whole bunch, yet they’re only selling them today, AFter today you will have to wait for the official launch date.

    2. Do it! You’ll love it. 

  2. I just bought myself a Galaxy Tab 10.1 at this exact store! I went during my lunch break just in time for them to tell me that they ran out of the free cases for the thing, kinda got me pissed. —> Pix of my adventure.,

    1. I’m jealous! I have to sit here and wait another 9 days.

    2. If they ran out and you were one of the people eligible for it, you should have been offered something else, maybe a gift card worth the value of the case.

      1. I asked for a case half off, they said its out of their hands…

  3. Does it have TouchWiz or is it all stock?

    1. Yes, as far as I know.

    2. As you can see in the Engadget review:

      There is no TouchWiz.

  4. When is Verizon taking orders for the LTE 10.1?

  5. Oh yeah definitely going to get one – just not sure if to chance a trip for naught today or get it on the full launch day.

  6. I’m having a problem guys, It will not let me log into my google account, keep getting failure notifications when trying to set this thing up. I have the Double Password Protection, could that be the reason?

    1. Yes, you have to use your “application specific” password.

      1. Thanks, that worked

        1. Tigris67 – can you give us a brief review – how is it?  Pros/cons? 

  7. where’s my 3.1 update?!! My google i/o tab feels so inadequate =[

  8. $599 for 32G….with almost same specs as Asus Trans

  9. I swear Phandroid keeps using the picture of the 10.1v on posts about the 10.1 to personally drive me crazy.

  10. I’m holding off for the 8.9 – I wish they would just announce the release date for it; hard to be kept in the dark.

  11. i just got mine this morning!  it’s awesome!  the free case was really a sleeve and NOT leather, but instead pleather.  So I picked up a proper case.

  12. ugh they only had the 16GB white ones today at best buy!
