The wait is over, the Samsung Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000) has finally been unveiled at IFA 2010, officially outing what was probably the worst kept secret in tech.

That said, we now know that the Galaxy Tab will officially be a 7-inch tablet with a TFT-LCD display, it will be run the latest Android 2.2 firmware and is exceptionally light, weighing just 380grams.

The Galaxy Tab will support Flash 10.1, offering e-reading functionality and both a media and music hub. This will allow owners to consume videos, photos, music and other multimedia, streaming or downloading on the go via a 3G or WIFI connection.

Its hardware specification is very similar to the Galaxy S smartphone range. The Galaxy Tab has a Cortex A8 1.0GHz application processor, 512MB RAM, 3 MP Camera with Auto-Focus and LED Flash, 1.3MP front camera for video calling, a gyroscope, 16/32GB internal storage and apparently boasts 7 hours battery-life when in continual use.

We won’t go on too much about the tablet, instead we will embded some official press shots and Samsung’s very first TV commercial advertising the Galaxy Tab:

The Samusung Galaxy Tab will be released mid-September in Europe, with the US and other countries getting it later in the year. The million dollar question is, the Galaxy Tab or an iPad?
