Samsung has already confirmed that it will be bringing a tablet to market this quarter, but now more details are emerging regarding specifications and carrier.
A leaked firmware for the device, (P1000XXJH3 – in case you were wondering), suggest that the display will be limited to 480 x 800, the same as the 4in OLED display on the Galaxy S smartphone, which means it will already be lagging behind the iPad in that regard.
It will have a 3.2 megapixel camera on the rear, (2,048 x 1,536), and a 240 x 320 resolution camera on the front. Not surprisingly it will offer Wi-Fi and GPS and Bluetooth, though there's no confirmation of versions. There’s also mention of a Flash Player, which will give it greater appeal over the iPad for online video and games, assuming battery life isn't adversely affected. The ingenious new Swype keyboard tech will also be on-board and it will all be powered by a 1GHz ARM11 chip.
The expectation is that the device be dubbed the Galaxy Tab and a screen grab of a Vodafone UK system list sent anonymously to Engadget suggest that this network will get the device, though there’s no mention of a release date or price.
Bets are on that the Tab will launch in a few weeks at IFA and as this starts on 3 September we won’t have to wait too long for confirmation.
