So you like the Samsung Galaxy S, but would prefer something a little BIGGER? Enter the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The device was revealed this morning by Samsung South Africa's Twitter account, and while we don't have much information about the Tab yet, there are a few things you should know. The Tab is running Android, possibly 2.1, beneath Samsung's TouchWiz UI, it has a front-facing camera, and a standard 3.5-millimeter headphone jack. The photo shows a "Phone" icon at the bottom of the screen, so it looks like the device may be able to make phone calls. After revealing the Galaxy Tab, Samsung South Africa tweeted a little more information, saying that "this particular one" has a 7-inch TFT screen, which makes sense because, while a Super AMOLED screen would be nice, it would also be ridiculously expensive. The Korea Herald is reporting that there will be two other versions of the Tab: an 8-inch version in October and a 10-inch version in December.
The Galaxy S looks like a great device and, since it's basically just a bigger Galaxy S, the Tab could be destined for greatness as well. Hopefully when it becomes available, Samsung can price it aggressively and market it correctly to consumers. With the right price and backing by a carrier, this could become a popular tablet/MID/phone. Is the Tab something you would consider picking up?
