Samsung Galaxy Tab released – AMOLED screen on the way

Samsung's Galaxy Tab has hit the U.S. market

The theory that the Galaxy Tab could become the first genuine challenger to Apple’s iPad in the media tablet marketplace is about to be put to the test with Samsung’s 7-inch offering going on sale in the U.S. this week. At the same time the possibility of a Super AMOLED screen on the next-gen Galaxy Tab has also surfaced with Samsung Mobile Display showing a 7-inch AMOLED screen at the International Flat Panel Display forum in Japan.

The Galaxy Tab runs on Android 2.2, has a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and two cameras – a 3.2-megapixel main camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. The unit weighs 380 g and measures 190 x 120 x 11.9 mm (7.4 x 4.7 x 0.47 inches).

T-mobile is selling the Galaxy Tab for US$400 on 2 year contract (with a $50 mail-in rebate) while Verizon has it at $600 with data plans starting at $20 per month for 1 GB.

Sprint will release the Galaxy Tab on November 14 at a price of $400 (also after a $50 rebate) with data plans starting at $30 per month for 2 GB. A release fromAT&T is expected later this month.

The first-gen Galaxy Tab has a 1024 x 600, 7-inch TFT display but it looks like the rumored AMOLED (or possibly Super AMOLED) display could appear on the next version with Samsung Mobile Display showing a 7-inch panel in Japan.
