Samsung Galaxy Tape launch next month

We heard rumour that it was coming to retailers in September, a story backed up by news of an official launch next month for the Samsung Galaxy Tape or Tab. Who knows - we might even know the correct name by then.

The news of the launch comes from Korean news agency JoongAng Daily. Quoting a 'high ranking official' at Samsung, the statement reads, in translated form: 'We will showcase our latest Smart TV and interchangeable lens camera models at the show. We will also showcase our tablet PC for the first time officially.'

So far we've been stuck with a stream of leaks about that tablet PC or Android tablet, which is said to be similar in looks to the Galaxy S Android smartphone and  running Android 2.2 at launch. It also has a 7-inch super AMOLED display, 16GB of storage (expandable to 32GB), a fast 1.2GHz A8 processor for speedy web browsing, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

A previously-rumoured launch event never happened, but this rumour does have more weight and a good amount of logic too. Whether it will be on the shelves within weeks and days of that launch isn't clear - but it's a good bet to be around before Christmas.
