O2 has announced that it will be stocking the Samsung Galaxy Tab - and offering the 7-inch device on both voice and mobile data contracts.

That's good news for anyone who's unsure whether they want to use the SamTab as a massive phone.

The network has also announced that, like its iPhone and iPad plans, Galaxy Tab users will also have access to plenty of Wi-Fi hotspots, free of charge, as a result of its partnerships with The Cloud and BT Openzone.

"The Samsung Galaxy Tab, striking the ideal balance of portable size and power, is leading the way in a new category of devices", said Steve Alder, O2's general manager of devices.

"At O2 we love offering customers a range of experiences, and the Tab, bringing together Samsung and Android technology, will let customers access their content in a whole new way." 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available online at and in selected O2 shops on the big launch day - 1 November.

O2 has yet to divulge its pricing yet, although it states that this information will be available before the launch.
