Samsung’s first tablet computer, the Galaxy Tab, a lighter and smaller alternative to Apple’s iPad, has been unveiled at the IFA conference in Berlin.

Weighing in at 380g and featuring a 7-inch (18cm) screen, the Galaxy Tab is smaller and lighter than the iPad, but offers the ability to make voice and video calls with the device, on top of the movie, music and book media you can usually consume on the iPad and similar tablet PCs.

The Galaxy Tab will be powered by Google’s Android operating system, and come with a storage capacity choice of 16Gb or 32Gb, which can be expanded by a further 32Gb.

The device can connect via 3G mobile networks and offers Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity options.  Music and videos will be accessible through Samsung’s “Media Hub” and e-books through its “Reader’s Hub“.

The Samsung tablet can play Flash videos and supports streaming content to an external TV.  Samsung called it “the first of the company’s tablet devices“, indicating newer Samsung tablet models will be released in the future.

The Samsung Galaxy Tablet release date will be confirmed by Vodafone who will be distributing the device in the UK from October 2010.
