IFA 2010: Hands-On With The Samsung Galaxy Tab, Which Is ‘Not Just Another Tablet’

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 a few photos up as soon as possible.

Samsung says the Galaxy Tab isn’t “just another tablet PC,” but rather a “smart media device.” In my few moments with it today, well, it is a tablet PC, but o pretty good one. My guess is that Samsung doesn’t want to be lumped in with the rest of the tablets out there.

It has a 7-inch screen with a 1024×600 display. A front-facing camera lets you do video calls, and Flash 10.1 and HTML 5 ensures you’ll be able to see all that truly wonderful, rich content out there, no matter what the standard.

The Galaxy Tab also doubles as an e-reader, with Kobo’s e-reader app providing the, um, app.
