The folks over at Android Central are reporting on Samsung’s announcement yesterday about their Galaxy Tab, a new Android powered tablet device. It will run on all major US carriers: Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. Samsung is quoted as saying,
The Galaxy Tab features a brilliant 7-inch enhanced TFT display screen, 1GHz Hummingbird Application processor supporting 3D graphics and smooth Web browsing and front and rear-facing cameras for video chat while on-the-go. The Galaxy Tab is powered by Android 2.2â„¢, including full support for AdobeÂ® FlashÂ® Player 10.1. Just like the Galaxy S smart phones, the Galaxy Tab includes Samsungâ€™s Social Hub application and the new Media Hub content service, offering a robust collection of premium movies and TV episodes from some of the biggest entertainment companies.
According to Android Central, Samsung is planning to have these babies out by this holiday season, and that a wifi only version is in the works.
Obviously, this is a direct competitor to the gorilla in the room, the Apple iPad. Whether devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab will compete at the same level as Android devices have with the iPhone remains to be seen. Stay tuned right here as we keep you abreast of all the latest news in this arena.
