Samsung Galaxy tablet coming this fall

Samsung executives at this week’s New York event, displayed Samsung’s first tablet based on the ever popular Android OS. The Samsung Galaxy will be offered on all 4 major US carriers, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile as a 3G device.

Official release is still unknown, thought it should be coming this fall.

The 7-inch tablet will includes several features that Samsung hopes to attract audiences that Apple’s Ipad hasn’t caught yet. Some interesting features includes video conference, 3G connectivity, support for Adobe Flash and access to Samsung’s Media Hub. This Media Hub is Samsung’s online TV and Movie renting store, competing in a way against Apple’s Itunes. Video conferencing is supported with the two cameras: a front facing 1.3 megapixel, and a back facing 3 megapixel. An HDMI port and will also share media to DLNA devices on the same network or onto your big screen.

The Galaxy will run on Android 2.2 (Froyo), with 1Ghz Hummingbird cpu, 512 MB of RAM and 16GB of memory. This 13 ounces marvel should have a 7 hour battery life. Samsung will first release a 3G version, after which a WiFi-only version should be released shortly. Hopefully pricing will be good as this tablet looks great.
