O2, UK Mobile Operator disclosed that they will be selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab on November 1st in its shops. Samsung’s first tablet PC, The Galaxy tab, runs Google’s Android 2.2 OS know also as Froyo and is considerably seen as iPad’s biggest rival.
The Galaxy Tabs biggest advantage over iPad is that it will allow end users to view websites with Adobe Flash content and download freely whatever they like without having to pass through Apple’s app censorship committee of born again Christians, retired colonels, Daily Mail readers and nuns, giving users full discretion on the contents they access.
It will arrive with unlimited access to thousands of BT Openzones and The Cloud WiFi hotspots, engineered into all of O2’s mobile broadband tariffs allowing end users to surf and browse to the internet and access videos using the Tab’s 7” touchscreen with no limits.
O2 said the device will also have an integrated Google, Facebook and Outlook calendar and services like Google Maps including navigation.
O2’s General Manager of Devices, Steve Alder confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Tablet will be officially launched online at www.O2.co.uk and in chosen stores beginning 1st of November which is a Monday.
We noticed though that O2 has not mentioned of pricing, no confirmation from them as to how much approximately would the device cost. Some say that for the Galaxy Tab to compete with the iPad it should cost less compared to Apple’s tablet device, which is known to be the market leader currently.
Samsung did not set a fixed amount to its tablet PC; they have freely given suppliers the ability to charge whatever they like which accrued in Verizon’s stint to charge the Galaxy Tab only $30 less than the iPad. Analysts believed that this is far too costly no matter how good the tablet might be.
