Samsung’s tablet is widely known as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but latest reports indicate Samsung will launch its tablet in South Korea under the name Samsung Galaxy Pad. With the iPad already available, RIM’s BlackPad right around the corner, maybe it makes sense to market all touch screen tablets as a “Pad.” However, Samsung may choose to market the Galaxy Pad under a different name when it is released in the European and American markets. In addition, OLED-Display is reporting Samsung will launch two devices of the Galaxy Pad — a 7 inch display version and a 10 inch display version.
The 7 inch display model should be on display at IFA this year, meaning a launch should follow shortly thereafter. Interestingly, Samsung plans to price the 7 inch model similar to the price point of the Galaxy S smartphone (I am going to assume this means the unsubsidized price as opposed to the $199 on contract). To recap the Galaxy Pad real quick, the device features either a 7 inch or 10 inch display, runs Android 2.2, 5MP camera, WiFi, 1GHz processor, and 16GB internal memory expandable to 48GB with a 32GB microSD card.
