“The clip doesn’t provide more than was already known but confirms the front camera for ‘video calling,’ 720p playback and Android 2.2 out of the box,” Electronista reports. “A formal launch is now penned in for September 2, just ahead of the IFA show in Berlin. The device is now expected to have a seven-inch, 1024×600 display, carry both front and back cameras, and hold 16GB of internal storage.”

Electronista reports, “The company has strongly hinted at a US launch and, combined with our sighting in Australia, is now believed to be planning the same kind of worldwide launch that it had for the Galaxy S in a bid to thwart Apple before it cements its control of tablets with the iPad.

Samsung’s “Galaxy Tab” teaser video:

MacDailyNews Take: Why is the screen 7-inches? That’s probably the only way they’ll be able to claim “close to,” similar to” or even “better than” Apple iPad’s battery life.

Apple leads. The rest of the world follows at a distance.

  1. It’s not a iPad clone because it can’t run the 225,000 apps the iPad can. Still, I’m sure someone will buy one or two… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Anticipation, I think there will be 2 lines that will be longer than the one for that turd. One line will be going through the door marked “Men” and the other marked “Women”.

    What do they believe people will want that for other than to say, it is not an Apple product. It will have no battery life because it isn’t a low power A4 CPU, little to no apps, will not work with 75% of the college student’s Mac laptops, … And Flash will suck the battery dry!

  3. Is Apple the only company that doesn’t throw in a ton of sound, video and animation effects into their commercials to make the product look more exciting?

    Some of these commercials try to make their products look extremely high tech, which would seem to turn away consumers who are afraid of tech gadgets.

    Apple’s commercials strike just the right note with consumers, a high tech product that doesn’t require any technical abilities to use.
