Samsung Galaxy Tab gets FCC'd; dual-band WiFi and GSM frequencies?

This Samsung Galaxy Tab is everywhere. It was on a train in Australia, it has infiltrated Verizon's database, and already has a line of accessories to dress up the seven-incher. The only thing we're missing: an official word from Samsung that it's actually launching. Well it can't be too long now, right? Word on the tubes says the FCC has gotten their hands Samsung's new Galaxy device. And it looks like they named it "SHW-M180S" (terrible name in our opinion).

The FFC's documents -- which are available online to the public -- are saying this puppy will support dual-band 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi channels, able to connect to up to 150Mbps.  If your a more on the go type of person, Samsung's got your Android back; the Galaxy Tab will also rock a GSM 1900 radio frequency.

Not to be outdone, Engadget also did some snooping around the WiFi Alliance Database and found that there were two versions of this speedy little tablet in the works. One of them even sports quad-band GSM and HSDPA support.

You got all of that, right? [FCC via Engadget]

  • Buying this would be a no brainer if only it had a 10 inch screen (and if google apps/market etc is included)
  • Hey looks nice but you guys are slipping with this whole moderator thing. What's with the add for clothing and shoes and bag in the comments. For real if they want to advertise on your site shouldn't you get paid for it?
  • Keep quiet or everything we do on AC will require one of those annoying ass captchapta things. I don't know what they are called but they suck. I call um "chapped ass ya"!
  • But what's it doing in a Verizon database if they're CDMA and not GSM. Is "Big Red" holding out on us and planning to launch into the GSM arena too?
  • Yawn. 7" is too small. And proprietary connectors suck!
