Samsung Galaxy Tab “Porn” button prompts double-take

We're obviously far too mature to laugh at this sort of thing, but we will admit to a sly smile at the sight of Samsung's Galaxy Tab with a "Porn" button in the menus.  No, this isn't the Korean company's attempt to corner the tablet erotica market - that Steve Jobs so memorably said the iPad offered "freedom" from - but a poorly judged design decision on the Romanian version of the Froyo slate.

Mobilissimo spotted the incongruously labeled button on the Galaxy Tab, and handily have an explanation too.  Apparently the Romanian for "start" can be translated as "Pornire", which Samsung's UI engineers have subsequently abbreviated.  Pressing it will, we're guessing, take you back to the Android homescreen, rather than unlocking a cornucopia of illicit thrills.
