Samsung Galaxy Tab

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will make its British debut next month. Samsung UK has confirmed that its Android tablet will officially go on sale November 1 on all major networks and in all major shops.

UK consumers will have the choice of purchasing a SIM-free Tab or sign-up for a tariff that gives 3G data for “a range of attractive price packages” — a range of prices that Samsung conveniently still refuses to list. Though we have seen third-party retailers list the Tab for a wide range of prices, there is no official word how much the device will cost in full or with a network subsidy.

Whatever the cost, the Galaxy Tab will feature Android 2.2, a 7-inch TFT-LCD screen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, and a front-facing camera to make video calls. While the device will not have the Media Hub feature available only in the U.S. version, it will have the advantage of being able to place voice calls, a feature missing from the U.S. Tab slated to debut later this year.
