Samsung specs up 7in Android tablet

Vodafone to sell it

Top three mobile application threats

Samsung has posted the spec for its upcoming Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab. And Vodafone has announced availability.

What we have behind its shiny, 190 x 121 x 12mm, 380g shell is a 1GHz ARM A8 processor with a PowerVR SGX540 graphics core - rather similar to Apple's A4 chip, in other words. It has 512MB of Ram to play with and 16GB or 32GB of storage, though there's also an SDHC memory card slot.

The screen, already stated to be 7in, has a resolution of 600 x 1024. There's a 1.3Mp front-facing camera for video calls, and a 3Mp camera on the back.

Video calls? Yes, the Tab is a 7.2Mb/s, 5.8Mb/s HSPA tri-band 3G device with a quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge link for back-up. It also has 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0.

Samsung has built in a 4000mAh battery good, it claimed, for seven hours' video play.

It'll run Andoid 2.2.

There's video support for DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264 and "more", and it plays Flash 10.1 content.

The Galaxy Tab will start selling in October through Vodafone, for one, though right now the operator is keeping mum about pricing. So is Samsung. ®
