Samsung launches new tablet

Dubai, November 3, 2010

Samsung Electronics, a global leader in mobile technology, has launched in the UAE its Android powered Samsung Galaxy Tab, the first of the company’s tablet devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab (model: GT-P1000) offers PC-like web-browsing and all forms of multimedia content on the seven-inch display, a statement said.

Users can continuously communicate via e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS or social network with the optimized user interface, it added.

“Samsung sees the UAE and GCC as a key market for its mobile division, and we have witnessed tremendous growth since the introduction of our smartphones earlier this year,” said Young Woo Jun, general manager, Samsung Gulf Electronics.

“The Galaxy Tab represents the company’s first foray into this recently established market, and combined with Samsung’s mobile DNA and long history of successful mobile products, we are certain the Galaxy Tab will steer the smart media devices market in new directions.”

Powered by the Android Operating System 2.2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab makes use of the TFT-LCD display that, combined with a 1GHz application processor, delivers HD films in a variety of formats, viewing pictures, e-reading or sharing documents.

The Tab supports the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and offers swift, seamless viewing of the Web, as well as native Arabic language support.

The Galaxy Tab makes use of ‘hubs’ to provide access to any and all content easily and quickly. The ‘Readers Hub,’ Samsung’s unique e-reading application, provides easy access to a vast digital library – from literature to reference materials.

Other newly introduced ‘hubs’ include the 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.

As with other Android-powered devices from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab makes use of the Social Hub, providing always-on social networks connectivity.

“Being in the Middle East, the Tab includes native support for the Arabic language, something that has virtually always been lacking in similar product offerings, while Flash support is a first on a tablet device, allowing for a smoother and richer online experience,” continued Jun.

“A myriad of connectivity features allow users to experience PC-like web browsing, multimedia content and push email support, while still being able to enjoy full telephony support,” he concluded.

With 3G HSUPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0, the Samsung Galaxy Tab enhances users’ mobile communication on a whole new level, the statement said.

Using the Tab’s 1.3MP front camera, users can engage in video conferencing over 3G.

Typing on the large seven-inch display with SWYPE texting makes email communication smoother and more efficient, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab can act as the perfect speakerphone on the desk when used for voice telephony, or a mobile phone on the move via Bluetooth headset, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
