Samsung Galaxy Tab to launch with Vodafone in the UK

Vodafone has revealed that it will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Tab in the UK in partnership with the Korean giant.

"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".

DJ Lee, SVP of 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".

The Galaxy Tab will go on sale in October, although it isn't yet clear if Vodafone has the exclusive rights, or merely first dibs.
