    Google gave all 5000 attendees of Google I/O today their very own-white backed, super-thin (thinner than an iPad2), limited edition Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It comes with Android 3.0, but it will receive the 3.1 update within a couple weeks. There are already reports of someone putting their Google I/O LE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 up on eBay, with bids starting around $960. Below you can check out an AndroidPolice link that shares a bunch of comparison pics between the Samsung device and the Motorola Xoom. The Xoom seems very bulky in comparison.

    Now, I'm wishing I had been able to go to Google I/O! How about you guys?

    No, tickets are $400. However, they might go for that much after they sell out.
