Galaxy Tab accessories

It seems as if Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been leaked more than Motorola's Droid 2. Pictures, videos and information seem to pop up every day about the device that is set to be introduced September 2nd at the IFA Conference in Berlin (we'll be there!)

The rumors that have crept up this time deal with accessories and possible networks. 

Accessories for the tablet device that have been spotted online in the past couple of days:

  • HDMI docking station
  • Leather case
  • Bluetooth keyboard
  • Bluetooth Stylus (that can be used with multiple devices)
  • USB adapter
  • Screen protector

It would be great to see all of these officially confirmed by Samsung on Thursday, particularly the HDMI and USB adapters. I think many of us have been skeptical that the only plug in/out of the tablet was what looked like a proprietary plug only compatible with one device.

The next bit of speculation deals with possible networks that the tablet will be released on. New pictures show a CDMA sticker on the device. Don't get too excited about a possible Sprint or Verizon release just yet (though we're not ruling out either), because remember that CDMA is still prevalent in Samsung's home base of South Korea. The fact that it is being introduced overseas though, where GSM is ubiquitous, makes us think that Samsung will try to release the tablet on as many carriers as possible, like its Galaxy S phone. 

All of these rumors and speculation will end on Thursday in Berlin, as Samsung will finally announce the device. Remember to come back as we we will be in Berlin reporting on everything about the device, from look and feel to networks and accessories.

Probably gunna be waiting a while...

Those obviously show the Old Mock up of the TAB. Those buttons on the bottom arent there any more. They are the more conventional 4 buttons in a row.

These must have been taken a while ago.

Good to see they are trying to go all out though. I just need a couple of reviews. Engadget then AC --

I just hope these will be available unlocked and unsubsidized, with optional data packages that can be added on-demand, like on the iPad... Otherwise it really is nothing more than an oversized phone.

I'm about to travel far from my home country, getting one before I go (or once I'm abroad), and using it on any carrier when needed, or with wifi, would totally rock.

(ok so I'm not in the US so this verizon thing doesn't affect me, so I'm not referring to a CDMA Tab)
