Samsung certainly has been busy with the production of the Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was only recently announced and today the 22nd of March they might be unveiling their latest Galaxy Tab; the 8.9″ variant.

If you head over to Samsung’s Facebook page you’ll see an image with the Galaxy Tab followed by the numbers “78910”. The numbers might seem cryptic at first but there’s a high possibility that it denotes the different display sizes of the Galaxy Tab; 7″,8.9″ and 10.1″.

Finally the highly anticipated 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab has been officially launched yesterday and the good news is Maxis will be the first Telco to sell the device.

The tablet will be powered by Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS and has a sim slot allowing owners to make voice calls and send text messages. Pretty sure most people will be pairing it with a bluetooth headset or a handsfree kit to make calls; unless you like holding a 7″ device against your face.

The Tab comes with a 3MP camera with autofocus and LED and is also equipped with a front facing camera for 3G video calls. The letdown with the Tab is the screen is a capacitive TFT display (1024×600) unlike it’s smaller brethren the Galaxy S that uses a Super AMOLED display.

The Tab comes with all the goodies you would expect out of an Android powered device such as support for Adobe Flash 10.1, Google Mail, Google Maps and other Google services.

The tablet comes with 16GB and supports up to 32GB via its external memory slot. Powered by the Cortex A8 1.0 Ghz processor you’ll be happy to note that it has enough processing power for even the most demanding users.

Now to wait and see what applications are going to emerge to take full use of the extra real estate of the 7″ tablet.

Based on news from people who attended the launch yesterday, The Samsung Galaxy Tab is retailed at RM 2,699. Users can also sign up for a 12 or 24 month contract with Maxis for RM 1,849 and RM 1,749 respectively.
