London, UK, October 1st, 2010 – Following last month's global launch at IFA, Samsung Mobile today announces the Samsung Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000), will be available in UK stores from Monday 1st November.

Representing a new category of mobile products for the company, the Galaxy Tab features a 1GHz processor, Google's Android 2.2, Froyo operating system, a front facing camera for video calls and a 7-inch TFT-LCD display. It can be used for everything from watching films and TV, viewing pictures, reading e-books and sharing documents, to talking to friends and colleagues via voice and video call, e-mail, instant messaging, SMS/MMS or social networking.

The light (380g) weight of the Samsung Galaxy Tab means it is extremely portable, with its dimensions easy to grip and use, it is perfectly sized for life on the go. Supporting the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.1, the device allows people to quickly and easily surf and view pages on the internet.

The 'Readers Hub,' Samsung's unique e-reading application, provides easy access to a digital library, featuring everything from classical literature to the latest bestsellers and reference materials. In turn, films, videos and music are available via 'Media Hub' and 'Music Hub' applications, whilst all personal contact details, e-mail, calendar, social networking and instant messenger accounts, can be combined in the 'Social Hub'.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab brings a very unique proposition to the tablet market and from 1st November, gives consumers the ultimate in connectivity and portability that they have been waiting for. It can be enjoyed by anyone - commuters, students, parents, businesses – who want to experience a complete range of entertainment, whether that be watching movies, listening to music, reading newspapers, or simply making a phone call plus much more besides."

They really need to release a WiFi only version in the US that's not tied to a carrier. :(

Bad day for AC writers it seems.

On topic, can't wait for the onslaught of Android tablets to really begin.

Isn't it like a grand....think they would have tried to beat Apple in pricing since so many people complained about the iPad price.

StuRoid says:

Hmmm, I'm interested to see what prices the carriers come out with for the Tab. My current contract just expired that I've been using my unlocked Desire on so considering dropping that to a 30 day contract much cheaper and then get this too. Decisions, decisions....
