Samsung has released details of the host of accessories that will accompany the launch of its Galaxy Tab.
The tablet will hit the shops on 1 November and tout a 7 inch screen, 1GHz processor, Android Froyo OS and front-facing camera, but it seems Samsung has taken a leaf out of Apple's book and is maximising the device's accessory potential.
The keyboard dock is the priciest offering at RRP £69.99. It is a full-sized keyboard with a built-in docking station that holds the tablet in a portrait position and also has connections for the charger and audio output. The Carphone Warehouse will be the only supplier until 6 weeks after launch- wrapping up the Christmas shopping period.
A cheaper stand (£39.99) also charges the tablet while in use and includes speaker outlets and mini HDMI socket.
As expected there will also be a wide variety of cases on offer, including a case-come-stand made of leather, slimline leather slip case and D30 silicon/gel case, all costing in the region of £20 to £30.
Portable speakers, headphones, Samsung MicroSDHC cards, a travel adapter, spare USB data cable, TV-Out cable and in-car charger kit will also be available from the launch date and even more accessories are planned.
Simon Stanford, MD of mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland said: "This range of accessories aims to complement the Galaxy Tab's features and improve the experience the device offers - whether that's listening to music, watching video content, playing games or editing documents."
