Samsung may launch a 7-inch Android tablet based on its new Galaxy S line of phones, in a few weeks at the IFA 2010 consumer electronics show in Berlin.
The tablet, which may be called the P1000 Galaxy Tab, is reported to have a front-facing camera for video calls, something lacking in Apple’s iPad, but available on the iPhone 4. It’s not yet clear whether the Samsung tablet will go on sale first in Europe, when it will be available in the United States, and what its cost will be.
The Samsung Galaxy Tablet was first revealed to the public sometime ago by a Samsung South Africa PR rep – and since then we’ve heard various rumors about the tablet and seen some sightings of it, allegedly. However, no news about the tablet actually coming out, however.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 is expected to arrive with a 7-inch Super-AMOLED screen, powered by a 1.2-GHz-Cortex A8-Prozessor, running Android 2.2, dual cameras, and support for 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi.
The Samsung tablet would also support Adobe Flash, which is used to watch Web videos and animations. Apple has resisted using Flash for the iPad and iPhone, citing issues with battery drain, security and stability.
