According to Samsung they are aiming to bring the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to South Africa during July 2011 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9-inch four to six weeks after that.

Samsung provided indicative retail pricing for the devices, but added the caveat that the prices disclosed are what they’re aiming to come to market with and shouldn’t be considered confirmed as they may change due to exchange rates fluctuations or other circumstances.
