Samsung Galaxy S Tablet specs revealed?

Samsung's iPad rival bares just a little more to keep us hooked.

A firmware leak has revealed the specs for Samsung's upcoming Android tablet: the Galaxy S.

Running Android 2.2 FroYo out of the box the Galaxy S looks set to have a 400x800 WVGA screen and has been clocked with a 1Ghz processor. This is surprisingly slower than some expected, but with Android 2.2 it's not expected to be a hinderance. For those with a photographic interest the tablet is set to have a front-facing camera with a resolution of 240x320 (perfect for video calling) and a rear facing camera with a much higher resolution of 2048x1536.

You can also expect it to output 1080p content through a built-in HDMI interface and will be armed with WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, whilst packing in the rather excellent Google Maps as well. Other smaller things to expect will be Java, Flash 10.1 and also Swype; an program that allows users to type quickly on a touchscreen simply by dragging their fingers over the letters they want to use, whilst the program then predicts what you want to say.

Whilst some of the news may already be known, it has revealed some other important information that will surely be a hit with those hoping the Galaxy S tablet can truly be a rival for Cupertino's holy grail.

Will you be trading in your iPad for a Galaxy S Tablet? Or are there things you'd like to change about it; faster processor, better screen? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
