Samsung Galaxy Tab Hits FCC; GSM Radio Frequencies, 5GHz Dual-band WiFi Included

September 1, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung Galaxy Tab has made an appearance in the FCC documents. The model number of the Android tablet is listed as SHW-M180S and the tests appear to confirm support for 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth and 1900 MHz GPRS connectivity.

Information from the FCC suggests that the tablet will have faster and stronger connectivity to both WiFi and cellular networks, when it hits US markets.

According to the information, the Galaxy Tab will support dual band WiFi at 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi capable of speeds up to 150 Mbps. The one that landed at the FCC sports the GSM 1900 radio frequency which means that there is a possibility for an AT&T launch.

The documents point to a 2G standard supported by carriers such as AT&T. There is no reference to a 3G standard. There were rumors that the tablet had arrived in Verizon’s inventory system. But the current information lacks any mention of CDMA support.

There were reports that a “GT-P1000T” and a “GT-P1000L” (each with dual-band WiFi) were spotted while browsing through the WiFi Alliance databases. This suggests that multiple versions might be coming.

The tablet has been confirmed to be formally unveiled, on Thursday, at the IFA show in Berlin.
