AT&T, Verizon and Sprint to carry.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab will be revealed to the world on September 16 in an event in New York City's Time Warner Center, reports the WSJ. The manufacturer has already settled deals with Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel and AT&T to carry their new slate. The Tab is expected to cost between $200-$300, retail, varying based on individual carrier subsidies.

Samsung hopes to ship ten million units and take a third of the global tablet market by next year. This is a lofty goal, and one I honestly don't see them achieving. The Galaxy Tab is a neat device, but it lacks too much when compared to the iPad. The display is smaller (but still too large to fit in a pocket) the battery life is at least 30% less and, subscription fees included, the Tab will work out to be much pricier than the iPad.

When you add all that into the fact that Google themselves does not believe Android 2.2 is suitable for tablets, you've got quite a wall for the humble Tab to vault. I'm not saying it won't sell well, but expecting to own a third of the tablet market is a bit unrealistically optimistic.
