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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
