Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is expected to rival Apple’s iPad, on September 2 at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany. Since then, interested consumers are looking for the feature and especially the price of the new tablet PC.
Hankil Yoon, Samsung product executive, said that the Samsung Galaxy Tab, powered by Google Android 2.2 OS, could sell for between $200 and $300 when it debuts with wireless providers. However the carrier has not yet been confirmed, but it is almost certain that it will be offered through either Verizon or T-Mobile. Yoon tells the Wall Street Journal that the company is planning to move 10 million Galaxy Tabs next year and hope to have one third of the global tablet market next year.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is geared with 7-inch TFT-LCD screen with 1024 x 600 pixels, as well as 3 Mpx camera on the back with a flash and auto-focus, and a two built-in 3 Mpx and 1.3 Mpx cameras with a LED lamp designed for mobile video conferencing and a video chat function, full quad-band GSM/EDGE and tri-band 900/1900/2100 7.2Mbps HSDPA.
The Galaxy Tab is expected to hit the US market before the year ends as it will begin shipping to Europe next month and it is expected that the official Samsung Galaxy Tab price will be released in the coming weeks.
