A video has found its way onto the internet, courtesy of a South Korean website (dt.co.kr) that not only gives us some footage of the Galaxy Tab in action, but also shows it playing happy families posing for a photo with an iPad and it’s younger sibling, the Galaxy S. We have to say, it looks much smaller than we expected. It seems then, that the Galaxy Tab may not quite be the competition to the iPad we’d been expecting, instead, it seems that Samsung is hoping to beat Apple to the punch with the rumoured iPad Mini.
The video isn’t of the highest quality, but does allow us to see quite a substantial insight into what to expect from the Galaxy Tab and we’re pained to say that, if the video is to be believed, that the Galaxy Tab will be incredibly iPad-esque. In that, apps appear to be listed in an almost identical fashion with side scrolling screens. We can take some solace though, in the fact that there is an on-screen ‘Home’ button below the application grid pointing towards the fact that, although not seen on the video, the Galaxy Tab does retain the usual Android customisebale screens found on the Galaxy S and what we’re actually seeing on the video is merely the app drawer.
Interestingly, the video shows the Galaxy Tab to be a 3G connected device. Although, we’re going to hang on to our hopes that a Wi-Fi only version will be available too. The video also shows us the dialer, browser, a calendar and a maps application as well as an application which appears to allow the Galaxy Tab to pick up TV programs.
