Samsung to sell Galaxy Tab on big four – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile & Sprint
Samsung wants to leave no stone unturned to make the debut of its Android tablet a massive success. In the same bid, the company today announced the deals with all four top US telecom operators to sell Galaxy Tab in the country. The Samsung Galaxy Tab portfolio of mobile tablets from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless will be available in the coming months. Considering that tablet is going to four different operators, expect some tweaks and differences in carrier-wise models.
Samsung has also announced that an Wi-Fi only model will also make way to United States soon. So, those who do not want 3G models, just wait for sometime.
One major difference from the original Galaxy Tab and US version is the voice call capabilities, US version will not have phone feature, so it is just a tablet for you in US.
The company’s TouchWiz interface will apparently be changed for the US — it’s losing the Euro version’s Reader and Music hubs, but it will be coming with a new Media Hub and social networking integration.
“The addition of Galaxy Tab to the Galaxy product portfolio is a powerful proof point of Samsung’s commitment to bring new and innovative mobile experiences to U.S. consumers. The 7-inch display and thin, lightweight design, combined with premium content and productivity tools makes the Galaxy Tab a true mobile tablet that is as comfortable to use standing on a crowded train as it is relaxing on the couch at home. The Galaxy Tab is perfect for watching a movie, reading an e-book or catching up with your favorite TV shows or chatting with an old friend. Plus, the Tab’s design makes it completely pocketable in your pants or jacket,” said Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile, in a statement.
