Samsung Electronics Co. is unveiling a new tablet PC named Galaxy Tab as the latest device meant to rival Apple Inc.'s popular iPad.
Samsung Europe executive Thomas Richter said Thursday the device will offer users "a new galaxy of possibilities" with features such as mobile video conferencing and a video chat function.
The thin tablet device weighs 13.4 ounces (380 grams) and has a 7-inch (18-centimeter) touch screen. Richter said it comes with Google Inc.'s Android 2.2 operating system and Adobe's Flash Player.
Samsung said at a Berlin consumer electronics fair the price of the device will depend on telecommunications operators through which it will be available starting next month.
