The first real competitor the the Apple Tablet enters the United States. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab Android Tablet at the IFA 2010 earlier this month. After a couple rumors, Verizon Wireless now officially announced the Galaxy Tab.

Verizon says that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be shipping in the coming weeks. The carrier has not revealed the pricing yet, which is actually a very important aspect of the Galaxy Tab ability to compete with the iPad.

Equipped with a  7-inch touch screen and a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor, the Galaxy Tab will provide you with a robust HTML Web browsing experience.The Tablet runs Android 2.2 (Froyo) and of course supports Adobe Flash 10.1 Other features include 3MP camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, Wi-Fi, 2GB internal memory, bundled 16GB microSD card and 4,000mAh battery.

Verizon Wireless will introduce the Galaxy Tab with a number of exclusive applications such as V CAST Music with Rhapsody, V CAST Video on Demand, V CAST Song ID, VZ Navigator, along with games “Let’s Golf” and “N.O.V.A.”

Verizon is not the only carrier to offer the Galaxy Tab. According to ZDNet all four major US carriers will offer the Samsung Android Tablet.

This is of course a major advantage of the Galaxy Tab to be available on several carreiers and not just be locked into AT&T like the Apple iPad.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
