Samsung Galaxy Tab UK release date revealed

Tablet, Tech Digest news

Samsung have just announced the UK release date for their long-awaited Galaxy Tab tablet device. The iPad-battler will be winging its way into UK shops on Monday 1st November.

The 7 inch Android 2.2 device wooed the crowds at the recent IFA tech show in Berlin, and counts full Flash 10.1 support and a front facing camera among its list of Apple-bothering features.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “At Samsung we recognise consumers want to experience life without limits. The Samsung Galaxy Tab brings a very unique proposition to the tablet market and from 1st November, gives consumers the ultimate in connectivity and portability that they have been waiting for.

“It can be enjoyed by anyone – commuters, students, parents, businesses – who want to experience a complete range of entertainment, whether that be watching movies, listening to music, reading newspapers, or simply making a phone call plus much more besides.”

Samsung’s tablet will be available in the UK across all major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online with Carphone Warehouse, Dixons and T-Mobile.

Expect to pay around £600 for an unlocked Galaxy Tab, and a fair bit less for one tied into a network contract.
