Unlike Motorola XOOM, it will not upgrading with Android’s latest version Honeycomb, but coming with out-dated Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. The 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab features a 7-inch TFT touch display with 1024 x 600 WSVGA resolution and the device is also equipped with 1.3 Megapixels front-facing camera for video calling support along with a 5 Megapixels camera with LED flash.
