Today Samsung started to promote the long awaited Samsung Galaxy Tab which I presented you earlier in this blog. They also launched a website for it, you’ll find it here. So I decided to update the specifications I already collected.

The Wall street Journal already had a little hands-on. See their video here:
Another video comes from the androidcentral.com:
And this long video is from hdblog.it:
And another funny video of mobilereview.com (tablet stacking!)
The Galaxy Tab looks convincing and pretty cool (maybe beside the glossy screen).
I can’t wait to have one in my hands. But the price stays a big question: Samsung says “attracrive and competitive”, heise.de says that it costs 800 € (1024 $) without a contract and the Wall Street Journal has heard of 200$ – 300$ dollars, depending on the carrier… That is pretty high.
Let’s wait for Samsung’s official price… and let’s see what the price for the Toshiba Folio 100 tablet will be…
