NTT DoCoMo may have secured exclusive rights to release the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Japan, but that doesn’t mean other carriers in the country won’t be carrying Android 2.2-based Samsung tablets soon. Rather, in a sort of anti-climactic fashion, we are getting our second Froyo tab from the Korean manufacturer, the SMT-i9100. What could easily be a repackaged, rebranded Galaxy Tab for KDDI is actually slimmed down in the spec department.


The SMT-i9100 features a 7-inch, 1024×600 resolution touchscreen and 512MB RAM like the Galaxy Tab, but offers no front-facing camera, a 2MP lens on the rear, and only 4GB of internal storage. Also gone is Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, replaced with an interface by the name of Ocean Observation.

The SMT-i9100 will go on sale with an open price model in February 2011. No word if it could be coming to other regions around the globe.
