Samsung Galaxy Tab

Samsung Galaxy Tab

At a special event in New York last night, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab will become available through all major carriers in the US. This is a significant feat mirroring the one recently achieved with the Samsung Galaxy smartphone range. Presumably, the deals were cut at the same time. So, the carriers include Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile and may eventually cover some locals too. Also, Samsung’s Dale Sohn stated that the Tab should be available for the holiday season and furthermore, that there is a WiFi-only option on the way.

Samsung Mobile today announced the upcoming availability of the Galaxy Tab™ in the U.S with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. The first mobile tablet from Samsung shares many of the powerful characteristics of the Galaxy S smart phone lineup that launched this summer. The Galaxy Tab is designed with several enhancements to create a unique mobile experience that other products can’t deliver.

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 2.2™, including full support for Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1. Just like the Galaxy S smart phones, the Galaxy Tab includes Samsung’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.
