Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Cafe Hits Circular Quay

For today only Sydneysiders can get hands-on with the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v before its April release. In front of Customs House, Samsung has erected a pop-up cafe for the day, complete with free coffee and free Adriano Zumbo macaroons in a special Gingerbread and Honeycomb flavour. Get it?

If you've been tossing up a tablet decision it's a great chance to get a feel for the Honeycomb-powered Tab. As it's running a vanilla Android interface it's a nice way to get a feel for the updated OS, which takes a couple of minutes to get a handle on if you're used to 2.x but quickly feels like a nice evolution. And free coffee and macaroons from the now-famous 'dessert guy off MasterChef' is a nice little sweetener as well.

Note: We sampled the macaroons in the name of science. They're very blue and very good.
