[Rumor] Samsung Galaxy “Tape” to Launch with Froyo, First Specs Revealed


Vietnamese tech site Tinh te’s claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be launching with Android 2.2 whenever it’s due out. More specs have apparently been uncovered, to boot. Their trusted source says it’ll have an ARM Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, a 4,000mAh battery, 16GB of on-board storage and the option to have more thank to the addition of a microSD card slot (expandable to 32GB to make a possible maximum of 48GB).


At least for the 7-inch variant, we’re also hearing it’ll have Samsung’s Super AMOLED display which should make for a really nice viewing experience. Finally, it’s apparently going to undergo a name change before it hits the market: meet the supposed Samsung Galaxy Tape. I have my reservations about the name, but we’ll just leave it at that.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
