7" Froyo-powered tablet will take on iPad and others

Yesterday, Samsung posted a short teaser video for its upcoming Android-based tablet, the Galaxy Tab.

The video doesn't reveal much, but it does clue us in to some of the Tab's features, which include a 7" screen, augmented reality, video calling (thanks to a front-facing camera), full web browsing (thanks to support for Flash), Android 2.2 "Froyo," HD movie play, navigation, and e-reading.

The 19-second clip concludes with a date and location -- September 2, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. This most likely means that we can expect an official unveiling of the Tab at the IFA consumer electronics trade fair next week.

In other Tab sightings, the Chinese website ifanr posted some leaked photos of the device, along with an almost impossible to understand (unless you read Chinese) first impression. One thing that Google Translate can help to make out, other than "the benefits of holding hands is not acid," is that the device had a certain plasticky feel -- a common complaint on Samsung's Galaxy S line of smartphones, too. The lightweight Tab also boasts a 3.2 megapixel camera in addition to the QVGA front-facing one, 1024 x 600 screen resolution, and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics processor. 

Keep in mind that the unit and pictures portray what is most likely an early prototype. Final specs could change (along with that plasticky feel, perhaps). 

With the Tab, Samsung is gearing to take on the ubiquitous Apple iPad, along with other players like the rumored Android 3.0 Motorola tabletRIM's "Blackpad," and the 5" Dell Streak, in what has become a quickly expanding tablet market.
