Japanese operator, KDDI has added a new Samsung tablet in its portfolio and surprisingly, it’s not the same as Galaxy Tab. The SMT-i9100 looks different and features some different specs. It runs the same Android 2.2 OS with a 7-inch WSVGA (1024×600) screen, 512MB RAM but has an Ocean Observation UI instead of TouchWiz, a downgraded 2MP camera with no front-facing camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 2 hour battery life.
Additionally, the 450 grams tablet has Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, 4GB flash storage, microSD card slot (up to 32GB) and 2 hours of continuous battery life with standby of 12 hours.
The SMT-i9100 tablet is slated to release early next year.
Japan will also get the Galaxy Tab tablet from NTT DoCoMo.
