Korean Electronics giant Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy tablet will be available in Q3 2010 which ends on the 30th of September and as already reported, will carry the name Galaxy while being based on Google's Android platform.
The tablet form factor is getting more and more crowded as electronics manufacturers like LG, Microsoft, HP and Dell have decided to step in after Apple single handedly made the category cool again.
The Galaxy Tab, which looks a lot like the new Kindle byt without the keyboard, is expected to come with a Samsung Hummingbird Cortex A8 chip, 16GB internal memory, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G capabilities and a whoppingly large 4000mAh battery.
Microsoft and Intel tried before with the MIDs (Mobile Internet Devices) and tablet PCs but failed miserably. Previous rumours pointed to a possible tie-up between T-Mobile and Samsung.
LG confirmed that it will launch an LG Optimus tablet computer by the end of the year, one whole quarter after Samsung.
