Samsung has confirmed that their Android tablet device, the Galaxy Tab, will be shipping in Q3 of this year. The Galaxy Tab has been rumored for some time now, and is very similar in design and function to the Galaxy S line of phones – which our own unboxings show are some pretty gorgeous pieces of kit.

As you can see, the tab truly does look like an oversized Galaxy S. While it’s certainly not ugly, the Tab doesn’t quite seem to pull the look off as well – this is a case where simply being blown up just doesn’t quite work. Perhaps it’s the bevel, or the fact that it just looks like a cartoonishly oversized phone – it’s hard to say. Still, I would absolutely love to get my hands on one of these. The specs are said to be:

  • A8 CPU, clocked at 1.2GHz (presumably a Hummingbird)
  • 16GB storage, upgradable to 48GB with memory card
  • Android 2.2
  • GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • 3G
  • 2 Cameras (1 front, 1 back would make sense)
  • 7'” AMOLED Screen

Those are about all the details we have at the moment, but they’re plenty enough to keep us on the lookout for more details.
