In a move either planned all along or perhaps partially spurned by all the other recent unofficial leaks, Samsung has officially spun the hype machine into overdrive by releasing its own teaser video of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab. Discounting the fact that the first leaked image was from an official source (Samsung’s South African Twitter page), the new teaser is the first official confirmation of the Galaxy Tab and firmly validates many of previously rumored details including the name, size, and Android 2.2. Other snippets of information include GPS navigation, a Swype soft keyboard, support for augmented reality features, video call capabilities, Flash support, e-reader functionality, HD movie playback, and a rear facing camera. A few question marks on specifics remain such as the type (AMOLED or LCD?) and resolution (WSVGA or WVGA?) of the screen and the resolution of the rear facing camera, previously rumored to be a 3.2MP unit.
But perhaps the biggest new bit of information is the official date when all will finally be revealed at IFA Berlin. Mark your calendars for September 2nd! I don’t know about you but I’m very much looking forward to the launch of what is fast becoming one of the most anticipated Android tablets this year. Analyze the teaser for yourself after the break and let the discussion begin in the comments!
