Samsung is planning to unveil a luxury Galaxy Tab model that comes with a leather case and Bluetooth headset, and will set you back €749 or about $1,000. First shown off at Millionaire Fair, a European expo that shows off expensive toys and gadgets, the luxury version will reportedly be a limited time offer that lasts through January, according to TG Daily.
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.
