Samsung Galaxy Tab is official, will launch on September 2nd in Berlin

At this point, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has been rumored and leaked for almost as much as the product it’s trying to compete with, Apple’s iPad.

Months and months have passed, and we slowly got a lot of details about it.

The latest rumor regarding its official unveiling mentioned the beginning of September as the time frame for that, and was right.

For today Samsung USA have uploaded a teaser video on their official Youtube channel, which states that the Galaxy Tab will be launched on September 2nd in Berlin (at a pre-IFA event, I guess).

Some of the rumored specs of the Galaxy Tab have also been confirmed. Its screen size will be 7 inches diagonally, it will run Android 2.2 Froyo and will have two cameras, one on the back and one on the front for video calls.

It may also come with augmented reality browser Layar preinstalled, as there is a mention of augmented reality in the video, and Samsung have delivered many of their recent Android-based smartphones with Layar.

Here’s the video:

The name of the tablet (at least internationally, for it may be a different story in South Korea) will definitely be Galaxy Tab. It also just got its very own teaser site, but as of now the only thing on it is the video embedded above.

So, next week will see the official announcement regarding the first Android-powered Samsung tablet. That is also certainly when we’ll find out all the remaining details about it, most important of which are price and availability.
