We had a chance to look at the “work in progress” user guide for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Tab this morning and some interesting things really stuck out. The first thing was the multiple mentions of phone capabilities which we had all assumed were removed from the U.S. version of the device. While our sources have confirmed it indeed WON’T make calls, my hopes were high for a good 3 minutes that it would. (Tease!)
The second thing to stand out was the mention of Google Search on more than one occasion. If this UG holds up at all, the Tab might actually find the ranks of the Droid franchise and not sport Bing, although the screen shot of a Bing app pre-loaded is enough to not keep us crossing our fingers.
Oh and the preloaded app suite should look something like this: VZ Navigator, VCAST Music and Videos, Kindle app, ThinkFree Office Suite, NFL Mobile, and Slacker.
Will this device actually see that November 1st launch date we mentioned earlier?
Some of our best videos.
