Android Apps on the Samsung Galaxy Tab look just fine

Just as Google was stating that their Android 2.2 OS was not built for devices with a larger than 4-5 inch screen, analyst Rob Enderle of Enderle Group has said that Android Market apps simply will not look pleasing on the device because they were built for smaller screens. However, how well does an opinion stack up with actual knowledge of the device? Android community had gotten their hands-on the device at the Samsung Tab Event last Thursday, and real world tests in this case do not stack up with the "expert opinion."

Samsung Galaxy Tab coming to A&T, Verizon, and Sprint this month?

While news of the upcoming Galaxy Tab from Samsung is hard to come by these days, if “people familiar with the matter” are correct we will be seeing a multi-carrier rollout in just a few days, starting September 16th. Samsung is said to have made deals with these three carriers to launch to a broader audience and hopefully offering flexibility will result in more sales. This is a competitive strategy, Samsung is already estimating they will sell ten million units this year alone, and with a multi-carrier rollout this is very possible.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pricing And Full Spec List

Samsung has been hush-hush on pricing since the Galaxy Tab was announced this morning. Probably, because they are working with carriers to get it at subsidized pricing. This has not kept some stores online from putting it up for pre-order though. The pricing looks like it will be ranging from €699 ($890) to €799 ($1,020) in Europe. In the UK, the retailer Expansys is taking pre-orders at £680 ($1,050). They are saying that the tablet will be available around the 11th of October, and we are thinking that pricing seems a little rich for our blood. It is a little more money than the iPad but, we are really thinking that Samsung is focusing on working with the carriers to get it at a cheaper rate. Anyways, we are still glad to see that it is being sold as a stand alone device and not just as a subsidized device. No mention on the US info yet but in due time we will know. If you would like to see the specifications they are listing about the tablet, hit up the gallery below. [via Android And Me] [gallery]
