August 31, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

News about the Samsung Galaxy Tab has been circulating the web for quite sometime. Now, a leak has revealed that the tablet is headed for Verizon. The leaked screenshot shows the device in Verizon’s inventory system. But the revelation has not come as a surprise to many since there were rumors that Verizon was planning to introduce an iPad rival.

The still officially unannounced tablet will be running Android 2.2 Froyo. It will also come equipped with a 7-inch display and a 1.3 GHz processor. It will have both front as well as back cameras.

There are also unconfirmed rumors that the Tab will have 512 MB of RAM and that the battery life is about six hours. One of Samsung’s online portals also revealed some accessories for the Tab, including a dock with HDMI video and audio ports, as well as a keyboard attachment, and a leather case.

There are also reports of a 10-inch Motorola tablet, which could be running Android 3.0. The model is thought to be coming with a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 250.

There is no official confirmation on the date of launch, although both the tablets are expected to be launched by Verizon by the end of the year with a price tag lower price than the $499 iPad.
