Verizon snags Samsung Galaxy Tab?
Remember the other day when we reported on Verizon's roadmap for the remainder of the year? We gave you information about a Samsung produced tablet called the I800. According to a screen shot of Verizon's computer systems, the I800 is the Samsung Galaxy Tab. This dove tails perfectly with the picture we showed you recently of a CDMA version of the tablet.

The Galaxy Tab has generated quite a buzz with an introduction of the device set for Wednesday in Berlin. Android 2.2 will be powering the tablet at  launch which means that out of the box, the unit will be able to run Flash in the browser. We are expecting a November release of the Verizon model of the Galaxy Tab, which will have a 1.3GHz processor under the hood, offer 512MB of RAM and carry a 7 inch (Super?)AMOLED screen.

While Verizon fans are probably excited about this news, the carrier's roadmap mentioned a Motorola built tablet with a 10 inch screen running Android 3.0. The tablet, code named the Z600, is also expected to launch in November. If Big Red customers are getting a headache trying to decide which one they would like to buy, we would suggest taking two tablets and seeing the Doc in the morning.

Hopefully things will play out like the ipad and you wont have to sign a contract to get one. Maybe the option for a subsidized price would be nice?

After owning one for a while now I have to say that that is a serious annoyance...Easy to remedy(most times) but still annoying!

Exceptionally better ui than the ipad, id go with an android tab over an apple tab any day - but battery life is going to be an issue i presume - especially if it has an AMOLED screen lol
