Samsung has released a teaser video showing off its upcoming tablet device that is set to challenge the Apple iPad.

Revealed on a dedicated Samsung Web site, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will run the Android operating system and will be one of the first mass market tablet devices that will compete with Apple's iPad.

The teaser video is light on details, but what we do know is that the device will ship with a 7in touchscreen display, 3G connectivity, the latest 2.2 "Froyo" version of Android and a built-in camera. The Android OS on the Galaxy Tab is likely to be skinned with Samsung's TouchWIZ UI, as seen on the popular Samsung Galaxy S smartphone.

Watch the video below:

Earlier this week, a video of what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab was uploaded to YouTube. The tablet was spotted on a Sydney train and was secretly recorded by a curious observer. CityRail is useful for something after all. Check out the video below:

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be launched at the IFA consumer electronics show on 2 September.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
