Android based tablet device by Samsung – Galaxy Tab

By on August 25, 2010 in Gadgets, Google Android with 7 Comments

Samsung made the rumors come true, by posting a teaser video of the much rumored tablet device of theirs, the Galaxy Tab (named officially) which would be coming in with the Android operating system, and the tablet device is just going to resemble the Samsung Galaxy S in most of the terms, except the size and few changes in the interface (which were needed to make it look better with the larger size). Its the same to Galaxy S, as iPad was to the iPhone. But being an open-source and recently the more concentrated OS, the Android would be fitting in pretty well into the tablet.

The Galaxy Tab is expected to launch officially at the IFA in Germany a week later, on 2nd September 2010. As of now, there are just a few things shown in the teaser but that was enough to explain what all the Galaxy tab majorly has, and here are the features that were shown –

  • 7-inch touchscreen device, rumored that a 10-inch would be out too, but nothing officially true
  • Based on the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system
  • 3G support, and GPS functionality. The maps were shown with satellite view.
  • Screen resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • 2 cameras – The back camera is of 3.2 megapixel and the front has a VGA camera for video chat
  • Swype comes pre-loaded for better typing using the touchscreen
  • Support for flash
  • HD video playing
  • Fully functional web browser

Things like the Gmail app, the maps and the calendar have got a good facelift for the larger screen, as the screenshots show. The 2-column view of Messaging and Gmail makes it easier to navigate through those kind of conversation-based apps, and the samsung app market lets you purchase the apps based on your location. There is no official news about the pricing and the launch areas, but for now its going to be Europe who would first have the Galaxy Tab in their hands as the video was released in the UK website.

  1. The Galaxy tab is the only device with Android OS which could be called a competition to the iPad which is based on the iOS. The 7-inch touchscreen, the beautiful interface and the cameras for enhancing the user experience. The support for Flash is one of the beating features when compared to the iPad.
