Apart from two aforementioned features, the luxury version will be the same as other Galaxy Tab devices sold by several major US carriers. The Galaxy Tab typically costs $650 without a service plan or about $400 with a two-year plan from some carriers.
A luxury version of the Galaxy Tab suggests that Samsung wants to raise its brand awareness amongst those with a little more spending money. Samsung sold 600,000 units of the Galaxy Tab in a month and then broke the 1 million mark before two months passed.
Running on Android 2.2, the Galaxy Tab features a TFT-LCD capacitive touch screen with a 1024x600 resolution, a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor, 512MB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G, and dual cameras for capturing still images, videos, or making video calls. It also has a robust HTML Web browsing experience with Adobe Flash 10.1, as well as support for a number of different formats, including DivX, Xvid, WMV, and MPEG-4.
