Samsung cheered the news of having sold over
1 million Galaxy S smart phones in the U.S. alone.
Also, screenshots leaked that pinpointed September 9 as the date for
Verizon's launch of its own Galaxy S variant, the "Fascinate".Now
the folks over at Verizon are back at it again, leaking yet
another juicy screenshot to the Boy
This time around, the leaked shot shows that Samsung's
Galaxy Tab Android tablet is coming to Verizon. A
bit is already known about the upcoming tablet from a teaser video.
The 7” Galaxy Tab is expected to run Android 2.2 at launch and
features the same 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU (co-developed with
Intrinsity) found in the Galaxy S and Galaxy S Pro. It is
expected to have a moderate resolution camera in the back and a front
camera for video calling.Launching on Verizon, America's
largest wireless network, should help the device take on the kingpin
of the tablet industry, Apple. Apple at this point is virtually
uncontested in the tablet market, and is making the best of that,
2.3 million iPads a month. Numerous designs from
competitors, including the webOS-powered
HP Hurricane and Asus
Eee Pad, are expected soon to launch and give the iPad a fight,
though. Samsung's toughest competition may come
rumored upcoming Android tablet. While Samsung's tablet is
expected to launch in September, or in October at the latest,
Motorola's tablet is rumored not to launch until early next year.
Reportedly Motorola is opting to wait for the Q1 2011 launch of
Android 3.0 and is using the extra time to perfect the tablet.
That device is rumored to be 10 inches.Of course if the two
companies' Android smartphones are any indication, the Galaxy Tab
will pack the superior processor; the Galaxy S is nearly twice as
fast as the Motorola Droid X, running the same version of
Android.As for the Galaxy Tab, it reportedly will be
officially unveiled at the IFA
consumer electronics conference in Berlin on September 2.
