The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is now available on Vodafone, which should come as a great relief for all those involved.

The 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet will cost £229 if you agree to sign up to a 2-year, £27-a-month contract.

Vodafone has had a turbulent time getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to its customers, with the company first offering an exclusive model with a better camera before Samsung made the rash decision that the tab wasn’t good enough to compete with the iPad 2.

After that crisis, Vodafone was, for a time, still going to stock the model, instead calling it the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1V to emphasis the difference.

That debacle over, and everything looked set for a smooth ride until last month when Apple sued Samsung in the German courts. A quick court ruling later and it looked like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was never going to make it to market.

Vodafone suspended pre-orders and Europe was put in a holding pattern until someone with a decent law degree could work out what was what.

Now that the dust has started to settle, Vodafone has put the Tab 10.1 on sale in the UK.

Time to open a bottle of wine chaps, we think you’ve deserved it.
