Samsung Galaxy Tab is first DivX certified tablet
Looks like getting decent certification does not only apply to us human beings (when it comes to work, professional qualifications, etc), but it also trickles down to the gadget world as well. We’re talking about the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab Android-powered tablet device that looks primed to go up against the iPad from Apple, but one advantage that this puppy has would having received DivX certification recently, making this the first of its kind to do so. With that certification, you can be guaranteed that the recently revealed Galaxy Tab will be able to handle DivX HD video playback with aplomb regardless of whether you are at home or on the go.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab will arrive on European doorsteps later this month, where it will hit their friends across the Atlantic as well as select countries in Asia after that. For those who are not in the know, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will feature a generous 7-inch TFT display that is capable of delivering an unrivaled screen quality for a better viewing experience. It is pretty lightweight as well, tipping the scales at just 0.84 pounds (380g), where you have a choice of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. Just in case that is not enough, you can always expand that further by another 32GB thanks to its microSD memory card slot.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab will come with Samsung’s own TouchWIZ user interface, Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS support, rear and front facing cameras and doubles up as a cellphone as well. We don’t suppose considering the fact that it runs on Android, this could very well be a smartphone (albeit a very large one). Take that, iPad! Since it will be Android-powered, the Galaxy Tab can access various applications from Android Market where applicable. Hopefully the battery life of this thing is going to last at decent levels, since it would definitely be a bummer to view your favorite movie halfway only to have it die on you.
