More information on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, er, Tape
Seriously, the “Galaxy Tape?” Samsung’s upcoming tablet deemed the S-Pad then the Galaxy Tab has now supposedly been renamed once again to the Galaxy Tape. It’s like they’re not even trying anymore with these names. You get the feeling that there’s a dartboard with random words Post-It noted to the numbers and Samsung marketing is playing a whole lot of cricket. Is there another good explanation as to why Samsung would name their new high-tech tablet after something that has been phased out three times already (videotape, cassette tape and Scotch tape — although there’s probably never any beating Duct tape. That stuff will always be a pinnacle technology)?
Moving away from our branding quandary we did get some new information on the tablet itself today. According to a source from the Vietnamese stie Tinh te the Samsung Galaxy Tape will use a 7-inch Super AMOLED screen and have an A8 1.2GHz processor. It will come with 16GB of storage with microSD card storage up to 32GB. The Tape will have a 4000mAh battery and weigh around 13 ounces. Perhaps best of all, it will be shipping in September with Android 2.2 intact and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
Most of this backs up the previous Samsung Galaxy Tab rumors except now we’re talking about a September release instead of an August one. There’s also rumored to be additional sizes, including an 8-inch version shipping in November and 10-inch in December.
