Vodafone today announced that its latest tablet device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, has been delayed until May 4 in Australia.

Read our comprehensive Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review, and see how it stacks up against the iPad 2 in our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v vs Apple iPad 2 tablet showdown.

Initially set to be available from "mid-April", the Galaxy Tab 10.1v will now launch in selected Vodafone stores and online from 4 May. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be available for pre-sale exclusively to Vodafone customers from 20 April, for delivery in the week commencing 1 May. Vodafone customers who pre-order the Galaxy Tab 10.1v will also receive a genuine Samsung case for the device.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which has specifically been designed for tablet devices. The software doesn't come with any UI overlays and is instead a "vanilla" version of the Honeycomb OS. Key features of Android 3.0 Honeycomb include tabbed Web browsing, support for 3D graphics, added enterprise features like encrypted storage, a redesigned keyboard, and completely redesigned interface that aims to take advantage of the larger tablet screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v Android tablet also features a rear 8-megapixel rear camera that doubles as a 1080p HD video recorder, a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls, and dual-speakers. The Galaxy Tab 10.1v is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, has 1GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, but there is no microSD card slot for extra storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be available for a limited time only. The device will cost $729 as an outright purchase which includes 6GB data with a three month expiry. It is also available for $259 upfront on a range of 12 month plans, and $0 upfront on various 24 month plans. For more details on these plans, visit Vodafone's website.

I own a Galaxy S Phone with Optus and would love to have a Tab 10.1v but would not have a bar of it with Vodaphone the worst telco in the country. There is no reception at all where I live.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
