"Samsung Electronics announced its much-anticipated Android consumer tablet, due to ship in Europe in mid-September. The Samsung Galaxy Tab runs Android 2.2 on a 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor, and offers a seven-inch, 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, a three-megapixel camera, a front-facing videocam, 802.11n, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, and 3G with voice telephony, says the company.

"The Galaxy Tab will debut in Europe this month, and launches are also set for Asia, the U.S. and other markets in the coming months, says Samsung, which did not reveal pricing. Speculation that Verizon will offer the tablet appears to have been confirmed by a BoyGeniusReport post this week of an internal Verizon inventory screen showing the tablet.

"The Samsung Galaxy Tab is equipped with a 1GHz, Cortex-A8 system-on-chip (SoC) with a PowerVR SGX540 3D graphics accelerator, says Samsung. (Previous leaked reports had listed a 1.2GHz processor instead.)"
