The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be officially shown off at next month’s IFA gadget gathering in Berlin. That’s the word from a “high-ranking official” at the Korean tech titan and puts previous tittle tattle about a 11 August release in doubt.

Speaking to JoonaAng Daily in Korea, the insider said that as well as touting a new Smart TV and interchangeable lens cameras, “We will also showcase our tablet PC for the first time officially.”
