Another iPad challenger enters the tablet PC market
Samsung has unveiled a new entry in the increasingly crowded tablet computer market - the Galaxy Tab.
The device - which weighs 380g, runs Google's Android 2.2 OS and has a seven inch TFT LCD display - was revealed at the IFA conference in Berlin this week.
The Tab - which supports Adobe Flash Player 10.1 - can be used for browsing the web, watching films or streaming TV, viewing pictures, reading e-books and sharing documents, as well as running apps from the Google's Android and Samsung's app stores.
Samsung says that the Tab's battery can last for seven hours of movie playback.
Tab users will be able to access digital books, videos and music online through the tablet's built-in Hub software.
The tablet is capable of accessing media through a variety of data connections - including 3G, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0.
The Tab is powered by an Arm Cortex-A8 1.0GHz processor and also comes with 16GB to 32GB storage, with an option to add up to 32GB more via an external memory slot, and 512MB of RAM.
The Tab can make phone and video calls as well as send SMS and MMS text messages.
The tablet has a front facing camera to allow for face-to-face video calls, while a rear-facing camera captures still images and video.
