Samsung Galaxy Tab(let) to be unveiled next month

Samsung is said to unveil their first Android tablet based on the Galaxy S next month, according to an unnamed “high-ranking official” at the company. The source told JoongAng Daily that Samsung would unveil the “Galaxy Tab” in Berlin at the IFA consumer electronics show, which runs Sept. 3-8th.

Kim Hwan, vice president of Samsung Mobile communications division, told analysts last month that his company would launch the tablet to the Korean market in Q3 2010, but we also expect the device will appear in the U.S. market. The recently leaked Verizon roadmap suggests they will carry the Samsung tablet and we fully anticipate it will be in stores this year.

No official specs have been provided, but the Galaxy Tab is rumored to include similar internals as the Galaxy S line of phones with the addition of a 7 inch display, 4000 mAh battery, and 16 GB of internal storage. Look for more details to drop over the coming weeks.

      There isn’t an earpiece. And that’s probably just a test OS.

        They might make it so that you can make calls from a headset or on speakerphone, but yeah your probably right about the test OS

          A separate headset and speaker phone is an accident just waiting to happen.

      That’s what people tend to say. While it’s true that most alternative products are indeed better than Apple’s, the fact is that millions of iSheep will still buy the iPad or whatever product you put an “i” in front of. You need a way to get a large fan base like Apple has done to overthrow them

    I’m placing a pretty solid bet on the fact that it’ll contain Samsung’s S5PV210 SoC; sister chip to the Galaxy S’ Hummingbird (S5PC110).

    The S5PV210 was specifically designed for “mobile computing”, containing a dual-channel memory controller that the Hummingbird lacks.

    Should be a pretty nice chip… and it’s probably also very closely related to the S5L8930 running within Apple’s A4 in the iPad. I know, shudder to think, but no family is without its sibling rivalries. ;)

    Can’t wait for the 10″ variety… then I’ll buy.

    maybe the cost of tablets will bring the cost of phones down.. not sure why a iphone is so much more expensive then a ipad.. I bet the ipad with 3g has all the same components and twice the ammount of hardware (screen and plastic). I hope tablets change that, early next year there will be many to choose from and people will start asking the same question.
