T-Mobile has managed to beat Verizon and Sprint to picking up a certain tablet from Samsung and offering it with their 3G services. The Froyo-run Galaxy Tab is going to hit T-Mobile on November 10, which is a day earlier than Verizon and four days before Sprint starts extending it to customers.
Sporting a 7” WSVGA multi-touch display that’s capable of rendering 3D-like visuals and coming pre-installed with Adobe Flash Player 10.1, the device lends support to T-Mobile’s HSPA+ mobile broadband network as well as Wi-Fi. It accommodates up to 32GB of expandable microSD memory, Microsoft Exchange e-mail, contacts and calendar. Additionally, Samsung Media Hub shelves a huge array of entertainment content including TV programs and movies for rent or purchase.
“Customers want richer, deeper interactions with entertainment and online content through connected, portable mobile broadband devices that are small enough to carry and big enough to share with friends and family,” remarked Jeremy Korst, director of broadband products and services, T-Mobile. “T-Mobile’s unique offerings on the Galaxy Tab paired with the power of T-Mobile’s new network allow us to bring a truly differentiated portable entertainment offering to market.”
The tablet’s front facing camera can be used with Qik Video Chat and users even have the option of leaving Video Mail with the Qik utility when a contact is unavailable. For those who love radio, there’s a free Slacker customizable internet radio app with more than 130 DJ-programmed genre stations and a functionality that lets user make their own stations. The Kindle for Android app can also be downloaded onto the device by those who rather fancy it as an e-reader too.
The tablet’s going to be sold with T-Mobile’s monthly 5GB or 200MB webConnect mobile broadband plans or the newer prepaid mobile broadband schemes.
