Samsung recently announced that its next generation of Android-powered tablets is "only a few days away," as the company once again attempts to encroach in the tablet market currently dominated by Apple.

Announced via Twitter, Samsung stated that its upcoming Galaxy Tab will be 10.1 inches and run Android 3.0, or Honeycomb. However, this seems to conflict with the company's website, which says the new tablet will be powered by Android 3.1.

Regardless of the operating system's version, the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab is likely to be an improvement from its predecessor, which ran on Android 2.2 and, later, on Android 2.3. With Honeycomb, Google designed the mobile OS specifically for tablets, providing more fluidity and intuition, Samsung stated.

Hardware-wise, the upcoming Galaxy Tab is no slouch. The device supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 1-gigahertz dual-core processor and a dual-camera system.

Samsung released its first version of the Galaxy Tab last November. While the tablet never lived up to the hype as an "iPad killer," the youth of the tablet market may afford Samsung a second shot.
