Samsung Galaxy Tab shipping with Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ and 1.2 GHz CPU?

Samsung is really bringing their A-game when it comes to Android devices these days, and if rumors are true, we’ve got a lot more to look forward to. Samsung’s upcoming 7-inch Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab is said to be running Android 2.2 OS “Froyo,” as well as a 1.2 GHz processor.

With the Samsung Galaxy S not even released yet – although the launch may not be too far from now – the promise of an Android tablet from Samsung keeps looking better and better. Vietnamese site Tinh te is claiming that a highly reliable source is saying that the Galaxy Tab will hit market with Android 2.2 OS (Froyo), as well as a 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 processor. With that bit of hearsay, one of the most promising Android tablets that may materialize in the near future is all of a sudden taking on a whole new shade of awesome.

The Galaxy Tab will run the S Life UI, which is pretty much a TouchWiz-like interface with some “S” widgets thrown in. If you’re a fan of the Samsung S Life stylings on the Android-powered Galaxy S, then you’ll be very surprised as to what the Tab might actually be bringing us.

From what we know at this point, it looks like the Galaxy Tab will come in multiple sizes, in 7-, 8- , and 10-inch variants. While they won’t be adorned with a Super AMOLED display, the updated software and snappy processor certainly soften the blow. We’re not exactly sure when we can expect these devices, as software tweaks like the S Life UI usually require a good bit of time to get all the kinks worked out.

If we end up seeing the Galaxy Tab this year, I’d think the 7-inch version would be the prime candidate for most – not too small or big, and weighs less than a pound. The larger options are nice to have, but who knows how much of a price differential you will have to pay for an additional inch or two?

We’ll definitely be keeping you up to date when more information comes our way.
