Galaxy Tab could be announced on Verizon as early as Thursday
Samsung is doing with its 7" Froyo tablet what it did with the US carrier versions of the Galaxy S. After the leak that it will be available in the AT&T's stable, an internal document uncovered the Galaxy Tab in Verizon's lineup as well. The snapshot from Big Red's announcement clearly states that the tablet's "upcoming launch" will be unveiled on Thursday.

That coincides with Samsung's big event announced for September 16th in New York City, where it also plans to introduce its Media Hub market for movie rentals and purchases. It will be great to have the 1GHz Hummingbird goodness both in smartphones and in tablets on the major US carriers, and seems exactly the plan Samsung will use to entice us to its best Android devices. Now, we can't wait for the Q3 and Q4 financial results of Sammy to start pouring in, so we can see how this massive launch strategy has paid off worldwide.

Phone Arena, you are start to suck the big one. No where in the story does it state the Tab will be out Thursday. Only that it will be out some day between now and the end of time.

haha, agreed.. information gathering crew in phone arena surely don't know how to read carefully.. in BGR, it said Samsung is holding an event on Thursday, not the GalTab coming to VZW on Thursday..

yeah, looks like samsung will be staging the event to announce the tab will be coming to verizon, att and i've also heard sprint. nothing for tmobile for now, but seeing what they did with the galaxy s, probably all of the big four will get one. wonder how much this will be? if verizon ties me up with a two year contract, no way!

PA never said it is being released thursday, the headline clearly reads "Galaxy Tab could be announced on Verizon as early as Thursday". to put it in terms you people will understand, samsung could be announcing the release date for verizon on thursday. you all comprehend text as well as android works...horribly.

derp, you are the idiot. PA has changed the headline. The original stated "galaxy tab coming to verizon on thursday" PA changes stories, headlines, etc when they are WRONG, but you can't see that.
