Samsung is betting on enterprise interest in their Galaxy Tab to give sales a shove, with Mobile Comms SVP Lee Don Joo expecting the Tab's compact form-factor and software flexibility to make the Android slate a hit in hospitals and insurance companies. "There will be pretty big demand" as staff look to replace laptops and paper documentation, the exec suggested.
If you have picked up a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Tab the first thing you need to do before you scratch it all up is to get a protective film on the screen. Wrapsol has been peddling films for a while now and the company has announced that it has a new film that is precision cut just for the Galaxy Tab.
Today we talk about, believe it or not, methane powered computers! Better hope you don't get too close to a heat source. Uh oh. Then there's a Berlin showing of some fantastic looking color e-paper, sponsored by Bridgestone, Epson, and Samsung, but made by an unknown producer. Then PALM throws down the gauntlet saying they'll reclaim their smartphone "birthright" soon, and BYD Alice Tegra 2 Froyo tablet wants a chomp of the tablet market too.

Tablet's may be fashionable among tech fans right now, but it seems actual sales may not match the hype. According to Rodman & Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar, Apple's iPad production is set to top out at under 2m per month by the end of the year (where predictions of over 3m per month had been made), while Samsung is tipped to have "dramatically revise[d] down production volumes" after "poor sell through" of the Galaxy Tab.

While Verizon and AT&T may be opting to keep the Galaxy Tab as contract-free devices, it looks like US Cellular is taking a bit of a different route. The company has just officially announced that the Galaxy Tab, the tablet device from Samsung, will be heading to their network beginning November 19th. The first thing that some may notice is the distinct difference in pricing for the US Cellular version, versus the competition's. You'll have a two year contract to thank for that.
Despite the fact that we've already reviewed the Galaxy Tab for Verizon, just today, it looks like AT&T wants to go ahead and make it official that the carrier is indeed launching the Galaxy Tab tablet device. We've been waiting for the announcement, so if you've been trying to guess when the Tab would launch on AT&T, November 21st has been chosen as the day of days.
You can't accuse Samsung of lacking ambition with their recent mobile device launches.

PLUS: Dual Core dreams in Galaxy 2. Now all we've got to do is plug our fingernails into our kneecaps as we wait and see if Android 2.3 Gingerbread is released today at this years Web 2.0 Summit.
