Samsung Galaxy Tab(let) is coming to Verizon

August 30, 2010: 9:44 PM ET

The seven-inch tablet due to be unveiled later this week was found in Verizon's inventory management system, meaning that it is likely to land on the carrier's lineup soon.

BGR got their hands on a picture of Verizon's inventory (right) which seems to show two different SKUs of the Android-powered Galaxy  tablet.

That means there is an incredibly high probability that Verizon (VZ) will be carrying the Galaxy Tab within the next month or two.

The Galaxy Tab is a 7-inch screen device with the following reported specs:

  • Front and rear cameras for video conferencing, photos, videos, augmented reality, etc
  • Android 2.2: hotspot, Adobe Flash and super-fast browser
  • 1024x600 widescreen Super-AMOLED display (reportedly)
  • GPS for mapping, navigation
  • Phone calling abilities

This means that the Verizon-Android and AT&T-Apple opposing teams story is still the prevailing narrative in the smart mobile industry.
