Japanese carrier KDDI isn’t just outing new Android phones today; there’s also a new Samsung tablet, the SMT-i9100, with some obvious family resemblance to the Galaxy Tab but a few differences as well.  Built around a 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen and running Android 2.2 Froyo, the Samsung SMT-i9100 packs WiFi b/g/n but seemingly lacks the integrated 3G of the European Tab.

It also has a lower-resolution camera, just 2-megapixels rather than the 3-megapixels we’ve seen so far.  Storage is down as well, to 4GB (RAM is still 512MB however), and the only announced accessory is a desk cradle.

The Samsung SMT-i9100 won’t arrive on KDDI in Japan until late February 2011; no mention of pricing at this stage.
