Although it's unlikely to be an iPad killer, Samsung's "Galaxy Tab" could be Apple's first major threat.
Powered by the Android 2.2 OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab features a 7-inch TFT-LCD display (1024 x 600), front (1.3 MP) and rear (3 MP) cameras, full HD video playback, and comes in 16GB and 32GB models. It's also got built-in 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It will be launching in Europe later this month and in the U.S. in the "coming months."
"Samsung recognizes the tremendous growth potential in this newly created market, and we believe that the Samsung Galaxy Tab brings a unique and open proposition to market," said Samsung's mobile communications unit head JK Shin.
