Remember the Android tablet we said might be the first real competitor to the iPad 2 earlier this month? Well, it just made its debut on the Best Buy site, and while the big "Coming Soon" button has crushed our dreams of pre-ordering one today, the site is offering up a few more details on the thing -- or at least some confirmation of what we already knew. For one thing, it looks like the system will indeed pack Android 3.1, unlike the version we tested, which was rocking the 3.0.1. Also, on a more disappointing note, the adorable Android army on the model we picked up at Google I/O is gone, with a plain white back or metallic gray in its place, unlike the black one we were expecting -- perhaps Samsung will offer up both color options when the device actually ships. In the meantime, we'll see if we can find the number of a good laser engraver.
