With just a 7-inch screen the Samsung Galaxy Tab is small enough to comfortably fit into a suit pocket or handbag and thanks to its package of Google’s Android 2.2 operating system FroYo and a 1GHz processor the app-packing tablet device is a perfect commuter’s companion.

The Galaxy Tab’s commuter credentials are further boosted by its available eBook reader, internet browser, email manager and ability to handle video calls, SMS/MMS and, for those looking for more entertainment uses, a music player and the coveted Flash 10.1 integration.

Available for collection from four London tube stations, Liverpool Street, Balham, Highbury & Islington and Ealing Broadway, commuters looking to put the iPad challenger through its paces should register their interest by sending an email to galaxytab@tubetest.co.uk or speak to a member of the Samsung staff at the participating tube stations.
