While Microsoft has proved unable to give a definitive date for any tablets bearing its software to appear, Google’s partners are having no such trouble as Samsung has confirmed that it will introduce a 7in tablet running Android this quarter.
Following a picture leaked by Samsung South Africa, some have already dubbed it the Samsung Galaxy Tablet, continuing a brand name that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy, Galaxy S, and forthcoming Galaxy Q.
The move demonstrates there will be a wide choice of tablets and OSs to choose from come the end of the year. Samsung and LG are producing tablets powered by Android, HP is going with both WebOS and Windows 7, while Acer, Dell, and Toshiba are also likely to take the Microsoft route.
If you haven’t yet succumbed to an iPad, the news means that it may well prove sensible to hold off for now.
