Samsung invites commuters to ‘tube test’ Galaxy Tab

Samsung is inviting selected members of the public to be the first in the UK to get their hands on its hotly anticipated Galaxy Tab, ahead of the UK launch on 1 November.

Ideal for commuters, lucky Londoners will be invited to ‘tube test’ the Samsung Galaxy Tab before it hits the shops so they can experience how it could transform their daily journey to work.

The portable device is small enough to fit into a suit pocket or handbag so it doesn’t weigh you down and can be used one-handed, great for those mornings when you can’t get a seat. Add to that its entertainment and communication and the daily commute will never be the same again.

From Monday 18 October 2010, a limited number of Galaxy Tabs will be available for loan over a two week period from one of four London tube stations: Liverpool Street; Balham; Highbury & Islington; or Ealing Broadway.

Each device will be lent for 48 hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. People wanting to get involved should apply by sending an email to or speak to a member of the Galaxy Tab team outside one of the four tube stations.

Simon Stanford, managing director, mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “The portability of the Samsung Galaxy Tab is one of its key features; you can literally fit it in your pocket or your handbag so it’s great for people who spend time commuting to and from work each day.

“At Samsung we thought what better way to showcase this than to give Londoners the opportunity to test the Galaxy Tab for themselves before they can buy them in the shops. We’re keen to hear what they have to say.”

The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be available in the UK from 1 November across all major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online such as Carphone Warehouse, Dixons Store Group and T-Mobile.
