Samsung Android Tablet To Land At Verizon Wireless

Samsung's forthcoming Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab, may well end up at Verizon Wireless, which is Vodafone's network partner in the US.

The tablet, which will be announced at the forthcoming IFA consumer show in Germany, has apparently appeared on Verizon's internal stock system according to the usually spot-on BGR.

The 7-inch tablet should be launched on the 2nd of September and will come with Android 2.2. There was a teaser video posted by Samsung which failed to reveal much.

Earlier rumours point to a 1024x600 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, a 1GHz Qualcomm based processor, support for SWYPE, a 3-megapixel camera plus a front facing one.

The Galaxy Tab will come with a built in 3G modem and the fact that it has already appeared on the internal system of a mobile phone operator points to the probability that the tablet will be available on a pay monthly contract (i.e subsidised).

The device will be part of a trio of Galaxy devices either available already or set to launched by Samsung in the next few weeks; a media player will join the fray soon and the Galaxy S smartphone is already with us.
