Can you hear that? It’s the sound of war. Better choose your side soon, too. The tablet wars are going to get nasty. Apple’s army is prepped, already backed by over 3 million zealous iPad owners. But the Google Android horde is quickly banding together and will soon offer countless weapons from several major CE houses and dozens of smaller camps. Google is also quietly forming the… → Read More
The price of the Galaxy Tab is being rolled out as slowly as the device itself; early reports pegged it at €700 to begin with, or £679, or several other wildly different numbers — and then a Samsung exec flipped everyone’s bit by saying it would sell for under $300. It’s clear that it’ll probably be available both with and without a carrier picking up the tab (so to speak), but pricing… → Read More
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is going to sell well. It won’t be a blockbuster like the iPad, but it should still do alright mainly because it’s the first consumer-worthy Android tablet. Samsung can even price the tablet well north of the iPad’s $500 starting price. It will not matter. People will buy it even if it’s, I don’t know, $800. You might not, but there are enough Android fanboys that… → Read More
These prices are in no way substantiated, but in case they’re correct, we’ll have wanted to have posted them as soon as they appeared. Several sites are reporting that the highly-anticipated Galaxy Tab, with which we’ve just recently posted a hands-on, is going to be sold for a mind-blowing €699 for 16GB, and €799 for 32GB – or more. That’s around $900 and $1000… → Read More
Prepare to get hit by a ton of Sammy marketing. The commercial embedded here is likely just the first wave of Samsung’s assault on the iPad. And it seems that they’re going about it the right way, too.
The commercial simply shows off the Galaxy Tab‘s capabilities in an Apple-ish sort of way. We’ve said all along that if any Android tablet has a chance to steal marketshare away from the iPad, it’s… → Read More
Well, as promised, here’s a handy video of the Samsung Galaxy Tab in action. Apologies if it’s gets a little hairy at times—juggling two cameras while trying to navigate a GUI touchscreen isn’t exactly the easiest trick to pull off. → Read More
Samsung used its IFA press conference today to introduce the widely anticipated (I suppose) Galaxy Tab, the company’s Android 2.2-based tablet. I have a video rendering as I type this, but I just wanted to get some of the pictures up as soon as possible. → Read More
Forgive the music because you’re going to wanna trudge through this video. It is by far the best Samsung Galaxy Tab video to date and might be some sort of official demo. The entire 2:43 video is filled with nothing but action shots and size comparisons. Is it an iPad killer? Still hard to tell, but this video certain makes a case for it. Click through for the video. → Read More
All right, no more after this. The Galaxy Tab is pretty much what we all expect it to be: a bigger version of the Galaxy smartphone. But if you’re curious how they’ve adapted their imitation-iPhone interface to fit the larger screen, this little video preview shows a lot more than the previous ones. → Read More
And here we have the Samsung Galaxy Tab teaser video. Methinks someone on the Samsung marketing team was a big Simpsons fan growing up. Gabbo, Gabbo, Gabbo! → Read More
For some reason a telecomm employee was hanging out in a train station with the yet-unreleased Samsung Galaxy Tab and Electronista was there to take video of it. The Q&A is pretty stilted (“Is it any good?” “Yeah”) but I guess it proves that the device will be hitting Oz soon enough. → Read More
The Samsung Galaxy, the company’s upcoming Android-based (2.2, even) tablet, may not even be called that here in the U.S. While that will be the name for its Korean release, its U.S. name is still under consideration. Supposedly it will debut at the IFA trade show in Germany in a few weeks. Yay. → Read More
I’ll be the first to stand up and shout that hardware specs alone do not make or break devices — especially tablets. However, a rumor is circulating that states the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet will share most of the same specs with the Galaxy S smartphone including the 1GHz CPU and screen resolution. That’s bad news bears. That would mean the 7-inch tablet would have a nasty 480 x 800… → Read More
Samsung is the latest company to get into the tablet business. This, despite the fact that the tablet business is going nowhere, fast. Well, unless your name is Apple and you consider the iPad a tablet. In any event, behold! It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it will makes its official debut at European trade show IFA in September. → Read More
Samsung has a real chance of being a player in the tablet game. From what we’ve heard so far, their offering will be basically a larger version of the Galaxy S cell phone, called the Galaxy Tab. It will run Android, presumable 2.2, on a 7-inch screen. There might even be a phone function, something the iPad lacks.
Samsung is conducting a lesson in Brand Identity 101. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet is basically a gigantic Galaxy S i9000 in the same way that the iPad is an oversized iPhone. That’s a good thing.
We’re not entirely sure if the Galaxy Tab was supposed to go official yet, seeing as the pic and announcement came from the Samsung South Africa Twitter feed, but here she is. Seven inches of… → Read More
