Sprint outing the Samsung Galaxy Tab this fall, while T-Mobile will make its move in time for the Holidays
If you've been wondering when is the Samsung Galaxy Tab going to be released by your carrier, we might have a few details that might just happen to grab your interest. Well, it's not to say that we're swimming in an informational pool here, but at least can tell you that Sprint will be looking to out Samsung's first tablet as soon as this fall (a bit of a flexible term if you ask us), while T-Mobile US will make its customers happy in time for the Holidays.

In the meantime, Verizon already announced that availability for its Galaxy Tab version is scheduled for the “coming weeks”. AT&T, on the other hand, is said to join the party sometime this Holiday season, similarly to T-Mobile. Honestly, we understand why AT&T is not in a hurry to launch this one – it already kind of has a tablet to offer in the form of the Apple iPad.

Of course, all versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will have uber-cool features such as 1GHz Hummingbird SoC, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, 3MP main camera, Android 2.2 with Flash Player 10.1 support and built-in Microsoft document viewer and editor for all those productivity freaks out there. How much is this going to cost you is still a mystery though, but we presume it won't be cheaper that your premium smartphone.

For those of you who would love to see PhoneArena's Samsung Galaxy Tab Hands-on from yesterday's announcement, what are you waiting for? Still not enough to satiate your thirst for the Galaxy Tab? See how the press-event went off then.

A few things that turned me from "I WANT ONE" to "I should just wait and see": 1. Google itself claims that Android 2.2 is not optimized for Tablet usage. It is better to run Android 3.0. Most likely this tablet will not get any updates in the future. 2. Video Call over Wi-Fi Only, not on 3G. 3. Main camera could be better 4. Some Market Apps cannot be installed. Some are installed off-scale due to resolution not optimized for the Galaxy S Tab. Overall this tablet is still very nice and sexy that maybe eventually I still get one for myself, LOL.

First of all, Wifi restrictions are a mere app away from solving that problem, not to mention, if you can root your phone, you can root this thing, and damn would this be sweet if it were rooted. Custom ROM's, Emulators, overclocking...Freaking sweet. But Ill be getting mine on Verizon, I dont want to invest in Sprints.

At&t + limited data = fail

Only complaint that I've got is that I would've liked to see a 5MP or 8MP camera on the rear with at least 720p video recording.

hey bobby, some people may want to not have to carry another device. if your going to pay probably 500-600 off contract or 200-300 on contract, and it has a camera, it might as well be a GOOD camera. Most people dont bring an actual camera around anymore, they use their cell phones.. so quit callin people fags for actually wanting good hardware to be in their new expencive equipment.. ya fag!

Although I agree I wouldn't want to point and shoot this giant thing for PICs Its still nice to have, and a 3 mp is pretty lame, but at least it has one. Bobby apparently likes to be the guy with a fanny pack that has his camera with a separate SD and phone with a separate SD and his Tab with a separate SD card....Wow your life is in order Bobby good for you, what are you going to do next, juggle all your devises like a circus clown?

I'll get one if it can be had in the $500-600 range off-contract. I'm already paying for service and data plan for my phone, and there's no way I'm going to get chained to a second data plan for this thing.
