Samsung Tablet Still Galaxy Tab, Coming Q3; Galaxy Beam Gets Dated; T-Mobile Galaxy S Hits the FCC

There’s a nice big pool of Samsung news to be had this morning. Firstly, those rumors we heard yesterday were not true: the Samsung Galaxy Tab has not been renamed to the Galaxy Tape, as “trusted sources” would have it. The news was confirmed by JK Shin, president of the South Korean company’s mobile division, who also gave us a launch window we could remain confident in.

We are planning to launch a table computer called “Galaxy Tab.” It will be launched no later than the third quarter of this year.

Next up, Samsung’s Galaxy Beam – a device they haven’t been too talkative about – has finally gotten a launch window. Singapore will apparently be the first country to see the first Android-based mini-projector device (they’re getting all the goods first lately) and should happen this July. The phone should also still be seeing a launch in most of Europe and Asia shortly afterward.

If you need a refresher on specs, this phone will have a 3.7-inch Super-AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.1, a nice 1800 mAh battery, and all of the video codecs you would need to take full advantage of the device’s video-out functionality.

Finally, the FCC just approved a version of the Samsung Galaxy S that’s compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G bands (and also happens to have a model number of T959). After all of the evidence we’ve seen pointing to the launch of this device on T-Mobile, it’s pretty much a given. All we’re waiting on is pricing and availability which – thanks to this newfound FCC love – could be headed our way very soon.

    If that Moto Milestone XT comes to Tmo as well, they’ll have pretty competitive Android lineup.

  • cooMANDINGO

    @cwalker30 agreed. that 6-19 thing is a waste of time. also i have inside sources sayng that tmobile USA is getting the IPHONE! so this ear were going to have the choice of the galaxy s and the ip4(coined by this haitian right here)(iphone4).im thinking should i stic with android r trying something which is the iphone. which would you choose on tmobiel. the fully supported (non jailbroken) ip4 orthe samsung galaxy s?

  • ricknexus

    @cooMANDINGO, I am def going with the sgs when it drops. If they do get the ip4, which i doubt will happen this year, than yeah i will be switching to that asap.

  • Eli

    Noooooooooooooooooo
    I want Verizon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cwalker30

    @cooMANDINGO that a very good question..i’m a android fan at heart. but that front facing camera does it for me! i think i would still go with the galaxy. because of the screen size and i know the dev at xda is going to root this bad boy soon after it release. but i do want to see whats the fuss is all about(apple fanboys). good question if that was the case~!

    The SGS has to come to everyone, including t-mobile. That way it will be a standard for game developers so that they can take advantage of hummingbird and its other capabilities.
    Beam seems very niche but I guess it will be a hit with the impromptu sales guys.

    galaxy s also has a front facing camera.
