Samsung launches new iPad rival

Dubai, September 2, 2010

Samsung Electronics, a global leader in mobile technology, today announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The Apple iPad rival is powered by Android Operating System 2.2 and is the first of the company’s tablet devices.

The Galaxy Tab brings together all of Samsung’s leading innovations to provide users with more capabilities while on the move. Consumers are able to experience PC-like web-browsing and enjoy all forms of multimedia content on the perfectly sized 7-inch display, wherever they go. Moreover, users can continuously communicate via e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS or social network with the optimized user interface.

“Samsung recognises the tremendous growth potential in this newly created market and we believe that the Samsung Galaxy Tab brings a unique and open proposition to market. There is a new and emerging consumer demand that Samsung can satisfy since mobile is in our DNA. This demand continues to grow and develop as users tap its limitless potential,” said JK Shin, president and head of mobile communications business, Samsung Electronics.

“The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been designed to enable consumers to maximize their online experience wherever that may be.”
As a new category of device, the Galaxy Tab brings a wealth of mobile experiences. Its striking 7” TFT-LCD display delivers exciting mobile experience for watching films, viewing pictures, e-reading or sharing documents. In design, its light (380g) build provides perfect portability, with its svelte dimensions making it easy to grip and use. Supporting the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.1, it fully supports swift, seamless viewing of every single page of the web, said a statement.

The ‘Readers Hub,’ Samsung’s unique e-reading application, provides easy access to a vast digital library – from classical literature to the latest bestsellers and reference materials. At the same time, Samsung unveils ‘Media Hub,’ a gateway to a world of films and videos, and ‘Music Hub,’ an application giving access to a wide range of music tunes.

With 3G HSUPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0, the Galaxy Tab enhances users’ mobile communication. Video conferencing and push email on the large 7-inch display make communication more smooth and efficient. For voice telephony, the device turns out to be a perfect speakerphone on the desk, or a mobile phone on the move via Bluetooth headset, it said.

While the front-facing camera allows face-to-face video telephony over 3G, the rear-facing camera captures still images and video that you can edit, upload and share, all without any hassle.

The Galaxy Tab will be launched in Europe in mid-September, and in other markets including Korea, the US and Asia in coming months, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
