Samsung has confirmed that its first tablet, the Android-based Galaxy tab, will be released on Monday the 1st of November in the UK but failed to say how much it would cost.
Simon Stanford, managing director for the mobile division of Samsung UK and Ireland, said in a statement that "The Samsung Galaxy Tab brings a very unique proposition to the tablet market and [...] gives consumers the ultimate in connectivity and portability that they have been waiting for."
He added that the tablet "can be enjoyed by anyone - commuters, students, parents, businesses - who want to experience a complete range of entertainment, whether that be watching movies, listening to music, reading newspapers, or simply making a phone call plus much more besides"
The device comes with a 1GHz (or 1.2GHz depending on whom you're asking to), has 512MB RAM, a 7-inch WSVGA capacitive touchscreen, a front facing camera and 3G connectivity.
It will run on Android OS 2.2 and is therefore compatible with Flash 10.1. 3 UK has already announced that it will have a Samsung Galaxy Tab tariff starting from £10 and the cheapest Galaxy Tab we've seen on the market is from Insight Direct where it sells for £587.49.
