Samsung is gearing up to debut their first Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab, at next week’s IFA show in Berin and the company just put the first teaser video online for all to enjoy. Details are limited when it comes to official specs, but the video clip reveals the Galaxy Tab will ship with Android 2.2 with Touchwiz UI, have Flash Player 10.1 support, and the ability to make video calls.
Based on everything we have seen so far, the Galaxy Tab is really just a super-sized Galaxy S with a 7-inch display. Several leaks have suggested the Tab will also feature 1024×600 pixel resolution, 3.2MP camera, QVGA front camera, GPS, 3G support, 802.11N WiFi, 4000 mAh battery, and 16 GB of internal storage. Images in video seem to back up the higher resolution as we can see several custom apps which a split-screen mode.
All four major U.S. carriers seem to have a good relationship with Samsung, so it’s possible we could see this tablet on each one (similar to the Galaxy S). The leaked Verizon roadmap suggested they are launching a Samsung tablet in November, but I expect more carriers will also pick up the device. Other rumors also claim that an 8-inch version might appear in October and a 10-inch one could land in December.
Let us know what you think of the Galaxy Tab. Has Samsung done enough to win you over? What missing specs would you like to see included?
