After getting an early hands on with the Samsung Galaxy Tab we’ve just had full specs at the Samsung Galaxy Tab press conference. Read on for more details!
The Samsung Galaxy Tab feature that promises to set it apart from other tablet devices is the phone feature. It might seem slightly silly to be making a phone call with a 7” device, that extra capability means it’s a whole lot more useful, especially because, depending on network operator, you’ll be able to hook up your Galaxy Tab to an existing phone number. It also has video calling capabilities, and hands free.
The Galaxy Tab weighs 380g, and is around the same width as a smartphone, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S. This means it’s ultra-portable. It has Flash and HTML5 support, and Android Froyo 2.2, with Bluetooth, Wi-fi and 3G connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab reader hub, which we mentioned in our gallery this morning, groups together e-books, magazines and newspapers, into one hub, and gives access to 1600 newspapers and 2500 magazines for download.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a front and rear facing cameras, a 3MP camera with LED flash for stills and video. The Samsung Media Hub hooks up your Galaxy Tab to your music and movies, with music powered by 7digital and full HD movie content.
The battery life is projected at around 8 hours. Other features include a social media hub which integrates all your accounts, Google Maps Navigation beta, and a 16GB or 32GB internal memory which is expandable to 32GB with a Micro SD card up to 32GB.
