Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet is starting to take shape

Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet is starting to take shape
Courtesy of a leaked firmware build for the expected Android 2.2-based Samsung tablet, a couple of more details about it receive unofficial confirmation.

First off, the Galaxy Tab will have the same Hummingbird chipset that is found in the Galaxy S, which includes the blazing PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing unit.

We are finally receiving the first confirmation on the resolution -  the 7” display will come with a 600x1024 pixels WSVGA res. It looks like an AMOLED display in the pictures, but we won't know for sure until Samsung announces it. The tablet also functions as a phone, will have GPS, 3G and Wi-Fi b/g/n chips, as well as a 3.2MP camera plus a front-facing one for video calls.

On the software front, it should arrive with what we've come to expect from Samsung's Android handsets lately – Swype text entry method, DivX playback out of the box, SRS in headset mode, as well as something called Reading Hub, which will probably be what it sounds like.

The Adobe Flash Player 10.1-enabled Froyo tablet has been spotted in internal documents for Vodaphone UK, Orange, O2, AT&T, T-Mobile US, and SK Telecom, and is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2010 event next month.

Keep your bluetooth earpiece in your right pocket of your cargo shorts (with a d-ring rubber and without the hook), Then slide your tablet into the left pocket. When your tablet rings just use your bluetooth to take the call. Whip out your tablet for everything else. Thats what I do now with my Galaxy S. Hurry up Samsung! I want one today please! Phoenix87 is right on. My phone is too small and the ipad is too big. Long live Android!!!!
