Galaxy Tab: Samsung’s Android tablet possible launch early September

Samsung could reveal its first Android based tablet at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin which runs from 3 to 8 September if a report from English Korean news site, JooAng Daily, is correct.

The website cites an unnamed “high-ranking official” in Samsung as the source for the report. Apart from the speculative launch date, little else is known about the Samsung tablet.

Though some rumours claim that the so called Galaxy Tab will run similar hardware as the Galaxy S which includes a 1GHz processor with a dedicated GPU, 512MB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. In addition to that, the Galaxy Tab will also pack a 7 inch display and a 4000 mAh battery. On top of that, the Galaxy Tab is reported to be able to make video calls.

We’re wondering if the 7 inch screen will be similar to the eye-watering Super AMOLED type as seen on the Galaxy S. It certainly will boost the chances of the Galaxy Tab against the iPad.
