There were some rumors about Samsung preparing a tablet, but nothing certain until this moment. South African Samsung Blog however just posted a picture on Twitter showing Galaxy S next to that elusive tablet, which is obviously called Galaxy Tab.
The confirmed specs are the 7-inch 16:9 capacitive display, microSD card slot, front-facing video-call camera, 3G with HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 3.5mm audio jack. And it’s obviously capable of GSM telephony.
The OS ticking inside will be the latest Android skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
The 7-inch screen will be most probably a TFT unit instead of an AMOLED or SuperAMOLED unit. It looks the resolution might be 1024×600 pixels, matching display’s aspect ratio.
Well, that’s what we know so far. With Android OS v.2.2 Froyo out there and considering the great time we spent with the I9000 Galaxy S, the Galaxy Tab will be surely a serious threat to the Apple’s iPad. I’m sure many people will prefer the wide design and open-sourced OS instead of the rather restricted iPad.
