NTT Docomo announced Monday that it will begin selling a Japanese-market version of Samsung Electronics Co's GALAXY Tab smart media device nationwide in Japan on Friday.
The GALAXY Tab provides an all-new way to experience Internet browsing on the go. The large 7-inch screen allows full Flash-compatible browsing and displays images in PC-quality 600 x 1,024-pixel resolution. It is an exceptionally portable tablet device that can be held easily in one hand, measuring just 12.1 mm in thickness and weighing only 382 grams.
The device is compatible with an e-book distribution service that Docomo is currently providing on a trial basis. Powered by the Android 2.2 operating system, the GALAXY Tab is also compatible with a large variety of applications available at the “docomo market” mobile portal, as well as Android Market and Samsung Apps. The GALAXY Tab supports Docomo’s sp-mode service, which enables smartphones to access i-mode email accounts.© Japan Today
