Samsung Electronics is poised to unveil its first tablet PC offering at the IFA electronics show in Berlin, Germany early next month. The rumored nickname for the new device is the “Galaxy Tab,” a la the company’s new Galaxy S smartphone series. Moving further, Samsung has released a teaser video for its upcoming Android based Tablet yesterday.

The 7 inch device which is set to get launch in Berlin on September 2, looks like a direct extension of the Galaxy S series of phones Samsung is currently selling. We’re big fans of the Galaxy S handset, as you can see in our hands-on review of the Galaxy S Captivate.

In addition to a 7-inch multi-touch screen, the Galaxy Tab video also notes that the tablet will ship with Google Android 2.2, a.k.a. Froyo. This is the latest Android variant and the first to include official support for Adobe Flash. The Galaxy Tab teaser also notes the ability to do video calls, which indicates that the device will be equipped with a front-facing camera.

Pricing and detailed technical specifications aren’t available at this time, but with any luck, the Galaxy Tab might just prove to be the first Android tablet with an actual shot at rivaling Apple’s iPad. Apple has already been challenged by many other strong competitors like RIM (BlackBerry) , Microsoft, LG and Dell who are gearing up to launch their own tablets in next few months.

While Microsoft is working closely with Intel to launch Microsoft Tablet, RIM has already announced the launch of “BlackPad” in October. A recent bold statement by LG towards LG Tablet has already served much to Apple for which company would be working with upcoming iPad strategy for sure.

It would be interesting to see next few moves by Apple to counter such detour attacks on iPad market share. What do you think about Samsung and other Tablets’, scheduled to be launch, success. Do let us know in comment section.
