As we near fall and ever closer to the all too important busy holiday season, there will naturally be a big push for tablets – and the Samsung Galaxy Tab plans on being part of the festivities. Packing similar hardware to its baby brother, the Samsung Galaxy S, the tablet is expected to compete head-on with the Apple iPad. Since the first wave of news regarding the Tab jumped onto the scene, we've rarely gotten the opportunity to see the handset in live form. However, the device in question was recently spotted being used by an employee of Australia's Telco operator. From the captured video, it's shaping up to be the device we all know about since it matches up to its description of being a 7” tablet. Additionally, you can quickly gather that it can be held with one hand and doesn't appear to be large in size when compared to the iPad. When asked about the device, which was being tested live in Sydney, the employee said that it was “awesome” and clearly described it as “different” to the iPad. Since it's being tested in the field right now, it could point to the reality that we could see the tablet very soon with a variety of network operators around the world speculated to offer it.
With a 7" display, the width of the tablet is measured to roughly 5". A person like myself can grip a 5" device on my palm no doubt, so it is not fake.
Sinaps is right. It is not a 10" display device that you were probably thinking.
