Samsung names Galaxy Tab launch date

D-Day for pricey 7in Android tablet

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Samsung's Galaxy Tab Android tablet will go on sale in Blighty on 1 November, the South Korean giant said today.

However, it didn't say how much the thing will cost. Given that the Tab incorporates a 7in, 600 x 1024 touchscreen, 1GHz ARM based CPU with an on-board PowerVR SGX graphics core, a GPS pick-up, a 3Mp camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSDPA 3G connectivity, you'd expect that it won't come cheap.

Indeed, Amazon.co.uk, while saying it will sell the Tab for £600 claims the RRP is £800. Ouch.

Fortunately, most online retailers are listing it around the £600 mark.

Samsung re-iterated its plan to sell the Tab not only through retailers but also mobile phone networks, though neither Vodafone nor Three have yet to say what they'll charge for the tablet when bundled with airtime.

Carphone Warehouse and Dixons stores will be selling the Tab too.

Samsung also said the Tab will contain three key apps: Readers Hub, Media Hub and Music Hub - which pull together, respectively, e-book, video and music sales sites. A fourth app, Social Hub, integrates the usual-suspect social networks.

Not all the Hubs will be available in the UK. The Music Hub, powered by 7digital, probably will be, but the Media Hub appears for now to be US-only. ®
