Samsung Galaxy Tab Video Demo Out; Features Revealed

September 24, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A video demo of the Samsung Galaxy Tab has been released. The nine minute video, which is being called their ‘official live demo’, reveals some of the main features that will be coming with the much-anticipated tablet.

We have seen a lot of videos of the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab in the past. But those were just demonstrations of the tablet’s hardware and not so much about the software other than a few looks at a few apps.

The new video, which is claimed to objectively present the Froyo tablet’s capabilities, starts with the reminder that it doesn’t contain any graphic effects. That dialogue is probably aimed at Apple who has earlier been criticized for making their device look faster in advertisements, than it is in real life.

The demo starts off showing the device powered on, unlocked and then a quick run through the scrolling menus. It looks quite smooth and the screen seems to work well with the tablet.

Then the tablet is seen in all its glory. That includes the Keyboard Dock in action, Samsung’s custom apps (including email and calendar) and Flash playback in the browser.  There is also some time being spent on wireless HD streaming. The video shows off just how elegantly Google’s Android mobile operating system translates to tablets.

But it has to be seen whether the tablet can become a real threat to the iPad. You should not forget that a 10-inch version of the Galaxy Tab is expected to arrive in 2011.

If you are still confused thinking whether you should buy the tablet or not, just take a look at the video below and then decide.
