MTN South Africa has announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet computer at MTN-branded stores this month.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a tablet device positioned to compete with the likes of Apple’s iPad. Some of the key differences are that it has a significantly smaller 7” screen with a 1024×600 resolution and runs Google’s Android operating system (specifically version 2.2, or “FroYo”).

It’s powered by a 1GHz processor, weighs 380 grams, has 512MB ROM, 592MB RAM and 16GB of storage. The device can support microSD cards up to a 32GB in size.

The Galaxy Tab’s built-in 3G modem can deliver speeds of up to 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 5.76Mbps HSUPA. It also has integrated Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and ThinkFree for document viewing and editing.

According to MTN, customers are able to experience PC-like Web-browsing and enjoy applications like YouTube, Facebook for Android, Twitter for Android, Gmail, Google Search, Google Maps, Google Latitude and Google Places.

The device can also be used for e-mail, voice and video calling, SMS/MMS or social networking.

“We strive to bring the latest and greatest technology to our customers. Coupled with the investment MTN has made in its network infrastructure, we can ensure that our smartphone and smartpad users can enjoy the best voice and internet experiences,” said Serame Taukobong, chief marketing officer at MTN South Africa.

The Galaxy Tab is available at MTN Stores on the MTN Internet 300MB contract package from only R369 per month.

MTN SP’s website also lists the following contract pricing. The monthly subscription includes calling line identity (CLI), but excludes itemised billing (IB).
