Samsung Loaning Out Galaxy Tabs for Two-Day Periods in London for Two Weeks


Samsung’s back at it in London. First, you guys got the chance to become “Mobilers” and got to keep a free Galaxy S just by walking around and using it. Now, Samsung’s setting up shop to hand people some Samsung Galaxy Tabs to do the same. You don’t get the added cherry on top of keeping it this time, though, as they want their merchandise back after 48-hours. I still wouldn’t give up a chance to walk around with one of the hottest devices of the upcoming holiday season. (Let’s not think about the price here, folks.)


The Promotion starts in 4 days – that’s October 18th – and you can find it at a London tube station on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. Those stations would be Liverpool Street, Balham, Highbury, and Islington or Ealing Broadway. I recommend you guys wake up early because you might have some nasty competition. Read on for the full details.


Samsung’s tablet device available for 48 hour loans before it hits the shops

London, UK, October 14th, 2010 – Samsung is inviting selected members of the public to be the first in the UK to get their hands on its hotly anticipated Galaxy Tab, ahead of the UK launch on 1st November. Ideal for commuters, lucky Londoners will be invited to ‘tube-test’ the Samsung Galaxy Tab before it hits the shops so they can experience how it could transform their daily journey to work. The perfectly portable device is small enough to fit into a suit pocket or handbag so it doesn’t weigh you down and can be used one-handed, great for those mornings when you can’t get a seat. Add to that its incredible entertainment and communication and the daily commute will never be the same again. Just make sure you don’t miss your stop!

From Monday 18th October 2010, a limited number of Galaxy Tabs will be available for loan over a two-week period from one of four London tube stations: Liverpool Street, Balham, Highbury & Islington or Ealing Broadway. Each device will be lent for 48 hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. People wanting to get involved, should apply by sending an email to [email protected] or speak to a member of the Galaxy Tab team outside one of the four tube stations.

The Galaxy Tab offers a world of possibilities, and Samsung wants to encourage the ‘tube-testers’ to try something new and escape the daily grind. Download or stream films and TV to watch on its TFT-LCD screen, edit the pictures you have never got round to looking at or use the Readers Hub to read books or magazines – perhaps try a different newspaper by getting it delivered daily directly to the Galaxy Tab?

Whether you want to read a newspaper, a magazine or book; check your emails; surf the web or play a game on the way to work, the 7 inch Galaxy Tab offers it all (Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash Player 10.1). It’s the perfect travelling companion, keeping you entertained on the tube or bus and even helping you find your way when you arrive using Google Maps.

It’s not all about entertainment, the Galaxy Tab is practical too and if you’re keen to get your work started early, you can use the Galaxy Tab to share and edit documents.

Travelling in a taxi or waiting on a station platform and need to contact someone? The Galaxy Tab is your perfect partner a you can contact friends or colleagues via voice and video calling, e-mail, instant messaging, SMS/MMS and access to all your favourite social networks.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “The portability of the Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of its key features – you can literally fit it in your pocket or your handbag so it’s great for people who spend time commuting to and from work each day. At Samsung we thought what better way to showcase this than to give Londoners the opportunity to test the Galaxy Tab for themselves before they can buy them in the shops. We’re keen to hear what they have to say.”

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available in the UK from 1st November across all major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online such as Carphone Warehouse, Dixons Store Group and T-Mobile.

Registration opens from 8am Friday 15th October.

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.

  1. They are doing the samethings that crack dealers do….give you a try for free and then make you buy it haha. Good marketing plan because you will pay whatever the $ amount is to get back what you had already.

  2. Cool – I work in Downtown Dallas and I am staring at where that lady was photographed out my window. How’d I miss that?

  3. Smart move Sammy. Try it before you buy :)

  4. Now this is the real deal.

  5. Why us it that when I see images/video of it up close it looks quite good but when I see images/video from a distance it looks so small. I can see why people say their phone is sufficient, a tablet really has to be at leasy 10inches for it to justify the cost.
