At Thursday's press event, Samsung officially announced that the Galaxy Tab will be available through four mobile carriers in the United States. Samsung also had some demo units on-hand so members of the press could get a closer look at its Android-based tablet.
In this video, a Samsung representative demonstrates how the Galaxy Tab switches smoothly from portrait to landscape mode and showcases how the unit's Adobe Flash 10.1 support allows users to view Flash-laden sites such as Major League Baseball's MLB.com.
The tablet, which has a 7-inch screen and a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and will come with Android 2.2 (Froyo), will also have access to Media Hub, Samsung's answer to Apple's iTunes Store. You can view videos immediately even as they download and you can share purchased content with up to five devices. The Galaxy Tab, which has a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera in addition to a 3-megapixel camera on the back, can complete video calls via Wi-Fi with the Qik.com app.
