Samsung are tipped to be readying a 7-inch Android tablet for release in August, with the so-called Samsung S-Pad using one of the company's Super AMOLED displays.  The company has previously confirmed its tablet plans; this new leak suggests there'll be 3G and WiFi connectivity, together with a partnership with Korean carrier SK Telecom, but there's no sign of the rumored 4G access.

Meanwhile there'll be a desktop dock similar to what's offered for Apple's iPad, though Samsung have said that they envisage the tablet will have far more connectivity than its Cupertino counterpart.  Major Korean bookstore Kyobo Books are tipped to be powering an on-device ebook store, while the Samsung Apps store will provide extra software.

Of course, it's not the first time Samsung have dipped their toes in the UMPC waters, having been a headline partner with Microsoft on the "official" UMPC project.  No word on what sort of price tag the Samsung S-Pad might carry.
