DOCOMO Getting Galaxy Tab Late November, Galaxy S Late October


Hello, Concrete!


Last week we told you that NTT DOCOMO was poised to get the Galaxy S in late October and the Galaxy Tab in March 2011. Great news: NTT DOCOMO has issued a press release (what’s more concrete than that) announcing the Galaxy S in late October and Galaxy Tab in late November.

I’m sure Japanese Phandroids are delighted at having Samsung’s high powered Androids on their up-and-coming list. And to hear the company is beating rumored Tab dates by 4 months and in time for the holidays? Sweet.

UPDATE: Pricing revealed via Bloomberg

The Galaxy S mobile will sell for about 30,000 yen ($359) and the computer for about 40,000 yen, both with a 2-year contract, President Ryuji Yamada said in Tokyo.

  1. If you read the info in Japanese on the Docomo site, it says the Galaxy S will be available on Oct 15th, and reservations are available now. The tab doesn’t have a set date yet that I could find, it just says late November.

  2. “announcing the Galaxy S in late October and Galaxy S in late November.”

  3. Epic pbrush work there. I just found out these guys are going all-out with wireless charging research. Woo!

  4. I think it won’t have a success : Android (the iShit too) isn’t adapted to the unique Japanese market ! What about Mixi, DVB-S and all things we don’t have in occident !

  5. so samsung cant even so much as let the people who already have a galaxy know shit about froyo and that one is launching with it. WOW, way to drop the ball on it sammy. if people thought you guys were unreliable before, after this is all said and done you guys will not ever sell another single phone, at least not to my dumb ass

  6. I think samsung is going to dominate the phone market in 2011,because now it has the best screen on the market “super amoled” even the retina display of the iphone4 could not beat it,also the humming bird processor which has 1Ghz of speed with the best 3d gaming graphics that even beats the upcoming nokia n8 dedicated gpu,in 2011 samsung will introduce phones with break resistant super amoled screens and the powerful Orion processors which only samsung haters will try to resist.
