Japanese carrier KDDI has confirmed it too will be getting a 7-inch Samsung tablet, though it’s not the Galaxy Tab we’ve seen until now. The Samsung SMT-i9100 is obviously from the same family as the Galaxy Tab, with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and Android 2.2 Froyo, but it loses the 3G connectivity, has a lower-resolution, 2-megapixel camera and a redesigned casing.
There’s also less onboard storage, just 4GB, though you get the same 512MB of RAM. KDDI’s interface is different to what we’ve seen on the Tab before, too, thanks to a collaboration with Ocean Observations.
As for accessories, the only thing Samsung has confirmed is a desk cradle (which you can see in the gallery below). No word on pricing for the KDDI SMT-i9100, but it’ll apparently arrive on the Japanese network in February 2011.
