Vodafone Samsung Galaxy Tab Launch in Europe Confirmed, No Word on Pricing but “Coming Soon”

September 4, 2010, By Alex Ion

It didn’t took Vodafone long to make an official statement regarding Samsung’s 7-inch Android tablet. According to a press release, the company is going to introduce the Galaxy Tab to their clients throughout Europe and “other Vodafone markets worldwide”, come October.

“Vodafone’s aim is to offer all customers new and attractive ways to enjoy mobile data, on the move, across a variety of devices,” said Patrick Chomet, Group Director of Terminals at Vodafone. “Adding tablets as part of our device range is a natural next step that gives customers an alternative way to enjoy great content and internet services. The GALAXY Tab is another showcase for Samsung’s innovation capabilities and we’re pleased to be introducing this across a number of our markets,” he added.

Vodafone is confident that the Galaxy Tab can be a hot seller, but they do a great job in staying tight-lipped when it comes to its price — but we’re expected with this level of confusion and secrecy.

DJ Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Sales & Marketing Team of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics, said “I am very excited to introduce Samsung GALAXY Tab with Vodafone. Thanks to Vodafone’s strong promotion and co-marketing with us, Samsung GALAXY Tab can be an outstanding smart media device to lead a new media revolution. With GALAXY Tab, users enjoy full web browsing with flash 10.1 support, reading eBooks, newspapers, or magazines, and watching HD videos on the large enough 7-inch display while on the move. Furthermore, it is still compact enough to carry everywhere.”

Must be said, I’m really curious what Vodafone will sell the Galaxy Tab for, as I think the price will have a  great influence over buyer’s decision.
