It’s pretty much official now. We’ve gotten word direct from Samsung that it’ll be unveiling the 7-inch “Galaxy Tab” Android Tablet on September 2nd.
The YouTube video above briefly either showcases or mentions the following:
- Swype keyboard input
- Android 2.2
- Augmented reality
- Video calling
- Rear facing camera
- HD movie playback
- “PC link web” (likely desktop media streaming)
- “Full web browsing”
- Flash support
There are very brief shots of what looks like dual-paned e-mail and instant messaging, but I managed to grab the stills using state-of-the-art budget video editing software.
Notice the riveting conversation that Cash Warren and Bobby Brwon are having in the far-right IM pane.
The rear-facing camera is also shown pretty blatantly, though a front-facing one is much harder to detect. Seems like video calling might be a bit tricky without a front-facing camera so let’s hope it’s there somewhere.
Samsung has also set up a website for the Galaxy Tab at galaxytab.samsungmobile.com. The only thing there is the same video from up above, though. Expect there to be more info on September 2nd.
