Samsung launches its new GALAXY Tab – TechRadar.com & Australian PC Authority review PressReader

Hey…psst…we haven’t formally announced this yet, but just between you, me and the World Wide Web, did you hear about the latest PressReader app pre-installed on the world’s newest, most highly anticipated tablet?

If you haven’t, here’s a little something that’ll hopefully wet your beak… :).

Earlier this month at the IFA 2010 trade show in Berlin, Germany, Samsung announced the launch of its GALAXY Tab, powered by Android Operating System 2.2.

The device marks Samsung’s first foray into the tablet market and if early reviews are any indication, the Tab promises to give the iPad and other tablet-like devices a run for their money.

With a PC-like web browsing experience, 7” touch screen, continuous communications via e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS and social networks and easy access to news, books and multi-media content, Samsung is banking on the GALAXY Tab offering users more capabilities while they’re on run.

And with PressReader an integral part of the Tab’s ‘Readers Hub’, users will benefit from an immensely popular news application that delivers immediate access to over 1,700 full-content publications from 92 countries in 48 languages in their truest form.

TechRader.com, in their assessment of PressReader went as far as saying, “The newspaper viewer is an interesting one … One nice feature is the ability to tap on any story and see it presented on the screen in its own right – making viewing a newspaper in the way you want much easier.  Samsung claims the Galaxy Tab will ‘play an important role in the digitization of printed material’ and if newspaper subscriptions all look this good on the Tab then we can see why.”

Happy days!

John Gillooly in his review of the GALAXY Tab for Australian PC Authority says the device’s, “16:9 screen is particularly well suited, and PressDisplay, for example, reflows stories to fit the screen when text is selected.”

Get a glimpse of John previewing PressReader on the GALAXY Tab at around the 2:55 mark of the video embedded in his article.  Great stuff!

So remember, whether you’re a casual news reader or an avid newspaper junkie reading online, offline, at work, at home or on the go, we’re confident PressReader for GALAXY Tab will help quash your appetite for full-content daily news ;).

Cheers,

-Michael

    Does this mean an Android app is coming or is this a Tab exclusive?

    Yeah, I am looking forward to the android app too. I really like the larger screen on my Evo phone android more than I do my iphone. I expect it will be easier to navigate around on the slightly larger screen. Hope it comes out soon. And I am still hoping that you add the feature of “bookmarking” articles or allow me draft an email with an article when the radio to the phone is off (ie, I am out of reception) because I lose articles I am reading if i can’t remember where they were.
