Samsung Galaxy U Samsung recently announced and launched their new Galaxy phone, they made this announcement in Korea. Phone is speculated to have been priced at $680 dollars and is set to be released in Korea only, it might be launched in USA at some further date. Samsung Galaxy U is pretty much similar to Galaxy S, but with a smaller display screen.The 7-inch handheld tablet was officially debuted earlier this month with the announcement that it would be headed to Vodafone in the United Kingdom, but nothing more about carriers elsewhere.

The Galaxy Tab definitely looks like a cool device, and arguably could be an iPad killer, if you don’t want to tap into the 250k+ apps available on the App Store. I’m holding out to see what the price will be, if you’ll be locked into a contract, and also what it will drop to around holiday time. For now, though, you can enjoy the video of the Tab in action below, and fantasize about how it’s going to change your life.

But according to the leaked screenshot above first posted by Engadget, it looks like the Galaxy Tab will be introduced on Verizon in the United States. This could potentially set up a battle royale between Samsung’s tablet entry and the iPad over on AT&T, depending on pricing and availability - neither of which won’t be announced for awhile. (Unless the Galaxy Tab really does go to more than one carrier, similar to the Galaxy S smartphone series.)

Telstra responded to queries today via its Exchange blog, announcing that customers could expect to see the much vaunted Samsung Galaxy S land on Telstra's network by 21 September.The telco also said that HTC Desire customers can expect to be updated to Froyo software over the air or via USB connection within the next month, thanking customers for their patience while it tested the Android update.

The first guess, which is a pretty logical one, is that Samsung will be showing off its Galaxy Tab. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a 7-inch Android (2.2) tablet that will do video conferencing, Flash, Augmented Reality, and just about any other thing you’d want it to do. What’s unknown at this point, though, is which carriers will carry it, and how much it’s going to cost.

The latest speculation from The Wall Street Journal puts the Tab at Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, and AT&T, and Engadget seems to have unearthed proof that it will definitely launch on Verizon, speculation is no longer needed. As of this writing I’ve only been able to confirm that “testing” is occurring at Sprint and that it seems to run most Android apps without issue.
