The Galaxy Tab is really shaping up to one awesome tablet, and if this latest rumor from the Wall Street Journal turns out to be true, a lot of people will be able to experience it for themselves.

Apparently, "three people familiar with the matter" told WSJ that Samsung already has deals with Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T that involve a certain 7-inch tablet - deals similar to the ones made for the Galaxy S line of phones. Obviously, this means more people would be able to experience the wonders of Android blown up to a 1024x768 resolution on a 7" diagonal display (although, if you ask Google, there aren't many to be had yet).

WSJ also claims that Samsung will announce these variations of the Tab at their September 16 event which we'll be covering. This would line up perfectly with the writing on the invitation, which teased Samsung's "latest Android-powered device." Now, if Samsung can just load the Sprint version of the Tab with 4G capabilities, consider me sold - I'll be picking up one of the ten million devices they plan to ship this year like clockwork.

    AT&T galaxy tab is pretty much a known/done deal, as far as I'm concerned. Browsing XDA there is at least one report of someone having seen one at an AT&T party he was invited to. Also, samfirmware (a site responsible for tracking/leaking firmwares for samsung deviecs) has already discovered a device called the i987 (as opposed to i897 of the Captivate). All the resources inside (boot animation, apps, etc) are blown up to a resolution of 1024x600. Also, there is plenty of AT&T branding inside
