Vodafone has decided to lose the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 from its line-up.
This is because, as you’ll be aware if you’ve been following Samsung’s multiple slates, the company has renamed the older model the 10.1v after it brought out a new slimmer version.
While that might seem like an odd thing to have done, it was basically a reaction to the iPad 2’s emergence onto the market with a more lightweight and svelte figure than the original Apple tablet.
So Voda has decided to drop support for the chunkier version of the Tab 10.1, and notified customers in an email Engadget was sent.
Vodafone said: “We’ve decided to add the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to our range, which will now take the place of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v.”
The downside is the 8 megapixel camera of the original has been banished for a 3 megapixel affair in a trade-off to make the device more compact.
