Vodafone may get the Samsung Galaxy Tablet very soon if a screen capture that shows the backend of mobile phone network's inventory system is to be believed.
Engadget published the picture which shows two "Samsung Galaxy Tablet Contract" entries which seems to indicate that there may well be two versions of the tablet or at least the same one available on two different contracts.
Equally likely is the fact that the tablet may be 3G enabled and may be launched in Berlin next month during the IFA event, the equivalent of the Las Vegas CES and the world largest trade fair for consumer electronics.
Details are scant for now; the rumours that we've heard include a worldwide Q3 launch, a 7-inch AMOLED 800x480 pixel capacitive touch screen, Android OS 2.2, a Samsung Hummingbird processor clocked at 1GHz, Wi-Fi, FM Tuner, Bluetooth, GPS, front and rear camera and 3 buttons plus some features that the current Galaxy S9000 smartphone sports.
And in a clear nudge to Apple, Samsung may release an iPod Touch version of the S9000, one without telephone capabilities. This would mean that Samsung may well use the same underlying hardware architecture to power three different devices.
At what price do you expect the Galaxy Tablet to be pitched? Would you even consider buying a 7-inch tablet?
