Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet Comes With 1.2GHz SoC, Android 2.2

Vietnamese website Tinhte has published details of the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet device which should be available by the end of the year and whose picture has been recently posted on Samsung's own South African Twitter account.

The tablet, which we know will come with a 7-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, will apparently sport an ARM-based Cortex A8 processor running at 1.2GHz, 16GB internal storage, upgradable to 48GB (via an optional 32GB microSD card).

At 370g, it will be lighter than the iPad as well although it is nearly a third heavier than the Amazon Kindle reader with its 6-inch screen.

Surprisingly, Tinhte says that the Galaxy Tab Tablet will come with a 4000mAh, which is significantly more than some netbooks we've encountered and should give it a more than decent battery life.

Last but not least, the Vietnamese source says that the tablet will sport Android OS 2.2 and an integrated eBook reader software. Tinhte also confirms that the tablet will come with magazine content developed exclusively for the tablet.
