Why did Samsung make a 7” Tablet—because we’re into mobility and know that people are looking for compact communication and entertainment devices they can slip in their pocket and bring on the go. The Galaxy Tab is always connected, lightweight and smart. Its exceptional screen is designed for reading books and magazines, watching movies and playing games. The Galaxy Tab builds on the rich content experience provided by the Galaxy S line of Android smartphone.
With 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth® 3.0, the Galaxy Tab takes mobile communication to a whole new level. By combining Samsung innovation with the Android 2.2 Platform, the Tab is truly a communication and entertainment tool. Its large battery (4,000 mAh) provides more than 7 hours of movie viewing time and because it’s powered by a Cortex A8 1.0GHz application processor, it’s designed to deliver high performance.
