Verizon, AT&T and Sprint to sell Samsung Galaxy Tab

Word from The Wall Street Journal is that the three largest carriers in the U.S. have signed on with Samsung to carry the newest tablet on the market.  The Samsung Galaxy Tab will essentially be an enlarged version of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

"Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Galaxy Tab in the U.S. market at an event at New York City's Time Warner Center on Sept. 16, two people familiar with the matter said."

The Tab will be competing directly with the Apple iPad.  It will be running Android 2.2 which isn't yet optomized for tablet devices.  The Tab will have three features that will set it apart from the iPad, these include; Flash 10.1, and will have two cameras (1.3 megapixel front facing camera and a 3 megapixel rear facing camera.

No word yet on prices, but rumors say that if it is subsidized prices could range from $200-$300.  This along with those additional features could make it more attractive compared to the iPad which currently is priced from $500-$830.
