A 10 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab
In an interesting development, a 10 inch device show cased at the Samsung camp at the on going FPD International trade show in Japan has led rumor mills going overboard in claiming it to be the 10 inch version of the Galaxy Tab. The highlight of the alleged 10 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab is its 10.1 inch LCD display panel that features a super thin construction, measuring just 1.8 mm in thickness. The display right now can boast of a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 250 nits of brightness while also covering more than 50 percent of the NTSC color gamut. However, the particular LCD panel does not look to reach production ready status within the next 2 to 3 years though its only next year that we have been assured of a 10 inch Galaxy Tab.
T-Mobile reveals Galaxy tab pricing
Also, here is one more way of getting your hands on the popular Samsung tablet – walk into any T-Mobile store that is currently offering the Galaxy Tab and walk out with the thing. But of course, not before you have parted with $599 of your hard earned money, the cost of the Android tablet in its unlocked and sim free state. Also, things will be a lot more easy on your pockets if you don’t mind bringing home the tablet with a T-Mobile sim already pre-loaded. Price then will come down to $399 for a two year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. And if you think that’s still a bit too heavy on your pockets, well T-Mobile has devised a way out for that as well. For the 7 inch tablet can also be availed of at a quite affordable monthly payment of $30 after a one time down payment of $250.

The Android Froyo has popped up on the Nigerian tech scene with Etisalat as the carrier of choice.
