Today at the IFA event in Berlin, Germany Samsung launched its new Galaxy Tab, an Android 2.2 powered tablet sized smartphone.

The Tab sports a 7-inch 1024 x 600 resolution touchscreen TFT display. With its glossy back and rounded edges, it felt awesome in my hand, and it is sized somewhere between a smartphone and the iPad. I was actually able to palm the 380g (13.4oz) tablet, and its on-screen keyboard was a breeze to type on. The built-in web browser looks good on the large display and has Adobe Flash 10.1 support built-in, too.

During my brief hands on, I noticed that the speakers sounded pretty impressive, and music from the Tab was easily able to fill the small conference room I was sitting in. Speaking of music, the Tab will be available in both 16GB and 32GB flavors, enough storage for plenty of tunes. There's also a microSD card slot for adding up to an additional 32GB of storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is expected to go on sale in Europe in mid-September. Pricing and carrier information has not yet been announced.
