Samsung Galaxy Tab in the flesh!
Spotted in the wild is this Samsung Galaxy Tab, probably the first few units in the Philippines. That means it should be out in around 2 weeks from now. See photos and video after the break.
The device is a little bit thick and feels plasticky but still solid. It feels light though and could probably fit in a large pocket or inside a jacket pocket which is nice since it’s not as bulky as the iPad.
There’s no physical buttons on the front except for that standard touch panel at the bottom end. The are a plethora of ports, buttons and sockets around the side — from the microSD slot, SIM card slot, and a proprietary USB port by Samsung.
The TouchWiz UI 3.0 on the Galaxy Tab is similar to the one on the Galaxy S although it’s positioned on the right side instead of the bottom.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is almost as thick as the iPhone 4 with the rubber case on. Too bad I didn’t bring my Galaxy S with me.
See video clip of the Galaxy Tab below.
Still no word on what the retail price would be but my guess is that it will be north of Php35k.
