by Reads (12,166)

Update: The Korean site The Digital Times has posted an extensive preview of the Samsung Galaxy Tab along with a video. The translated text confirms the Samsung Galaxy Tab will sport a Super AMOLED display similar to the smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy lineup. However, the Galaxy Tab will have a 16:10 ratio and an 800 x 400 pixel resolution. Also, in addition to running Google Android 2.2, the tablet computer will support b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and WCDMA 3G. It also has a “video call camera mounted on the front” (front-facing camera).

The translated preview also suggests the Galaxy Tab will run the same 1GHz CPU and TouchWiz UI as the Galaxy S, and sport an SD/SDHC card slot. The unit could also come in two versions: a 16GB Galaxy Tab and 32GB model.

In the movie industry, this is what we call a teaser.

Samsung today officially previewed their Google Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, in a 20-second video. We won’t go so far as to call it an unveiling, but onlybecause the Samsung set the official reveal date for September 2nd in Berlin.

That’s right, IFA, where TabletPCReview will have boots on the ground.

While short on specifics, the clip does reveal– or rather, confirm– what we already know about the potential iPad killer. It will have a seven-inch screen and run Google Android 2.2.

Other features include Swype text entry, HD movie playback, full web browsing, Adobe Flash support, “PC link web,” navigation, “augmented reality” and an eReader application.

Congrats Samsung, youve piqued our interest. Now lets have some real specs, like processor type, screen resolution and cellular support information.
