Samsung unveiled a teaser site, complete with a video yesterday, highlighting their previously unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab, and showing off some of the features that make the device special, as well as the device itself. The video includes the official acknowledgement that the device will be unveiled on September 2nd here in Berlin, where AndroidPIT is based.
The teaser site is located here, but the only details that can be gathered from the site are on the video. AndroidGuys notes the likelihood that "more details will land next week once the Berlin event is over."
Some of the details which can be gathered from the 20 second video include:
- Android 2.2
- 7" screen
- Video call (implying a front facing camera)
- Augmented Reality
- Full web browsing
- Google Navigation
- Video out
- September 2nd unveiling
The device also appears to have an opening at the back of the tablet next to the camera, which could be a camera flash. There also appear to be four lighted capacitative buttons along the front of the device

AndroidandMe discusses which carriers might be launching the device:
All four major U.S. carriers seem to have a good relationship with Samsung, so it’s possible we could see this tablet on each one (similar to the Galaxy S). The leaked Verizon roadmap suggested they are launching a Samsung tablet in November, but I expect more carriers will also pick up the device. Other rumors also claim that an 8-inch version might appear in October and a 10-inch one could land in December.
AndroidPIT will be at the launch event on September 2nd in Berlin at IFA, since we are a main German Android portal, and based here in Berlin. We may even be able to get some close-up photos, videos, and some hands-on time with the device. We'll keep you up-to-date on the Samsung Galaxy Tab developments.
