Houston We Have A Problem, The Galaxy Tab Runs Windows!

Update: Honestly, I don’t know how some of you aren’t catching the fact that this isn’t really real…its an obvious mistake, the Tab still runs Android.

If this were a little closer to April, I’d say this was just someone’s idea of an April Fool’s joke but instead it’s likely a case of poor editing. According to the T-Mobile homepage, the Galaxy Tab runs wait for it…Windows 7 Home Starter Edition! Of course we know this will get corrected soon (and we’ve alerted someone to the mistake) but I’m sure someone is going to feel pretty bad about it. What’s puzzling is how nobody caught this, as even we didn’t, an eagle-eyed commenter did! Rest assured it’s less than two weeks until you can own your very own Windows 7 Home Starter Edition based Tablet, complete with Android!

    If only. I guess we are stuck with a non-tablet Android OS.

    • j

      this is so obviously photoshopped to stir things up

  • mantus

    Looks like they just changed the dimensions and name from the Dell mini10 specs and put it up as the Galaxy Tab… Lazy!!

    If you notice the 3G info, it mentions Huawei. Perhaps these are Huawei Ideos tablet specs?

    • Cheato

  • abel2fresh4u

    some one is getting fired. =x

  • Noel Barcellos

    That is actually for a dell.. if you check the asterisk for battery life it says..

    * Based on Dell Lab testing. Battery life varies by configuration, operating conditions and other factors. Maximum battery capacity decreases with time and use.

  • kendrix_myrealname

    I would leave T-mo if that was true lol. my heard damn near stopped

    • calvin

      Here of spell check much? Lol. Obviously someone messed up. I highly dpubt to see a winmo tablet any time soon. And Samsung and T-Mobile both in press releases already said would be android. Just no voice capability. I still like the hd7 though. Netflix streaming.

      • VibrantOwnr

        you spelled doubt wrong..spell check?

      • Vibrant addict

        You spelled hear wrong too. And it’s proof read, not spell check

      • jesus

        Hahaha , Total spell check FAIL! @calvin

      • BlackHawk

        Sarcasim is a true art, only recognized by those who understand it. +1 Calvin, I got the joke.

      • Cheato

        I hate to say it, but I don’t think he was trying to be clever.

      • kendrix_myrealname

        I suggest you proofread your posts next time before you try to correct me calvin. And of course it was a mistake. I was just stating my feelings against Windows products.

  • fatboy97

    Oooops… did I click save on the Production Server!?!?

  • Eddie Android

    Lol, I noticed that yesterday.

  • sos


    • fatboy97

      If the iPad ran the latest Android OS, and had a microSD card slot, and was lighter… maybe.

    • Yyevo

      I’m confused … did you mean BETA as in testing or did you mean BETTER?

      Either way, I’ll get my tech recommendations from someone else.

  • luckydog

  • jkache

    Why is everyone still commenting and writing about all the mistakes they made? Its already been published and commented on by about 45 people. Still continuing to repeat the same thing that dave posted in the article!

  • Michael

    Can we please stop with all the WHO THAT WHO THAT stuff? It is worse than the “first” comments.

  • mtnman

    Perhaps these are the specs of the Dell or BB tab coming up?

  • mingkee

    Epic Fail!
    There’s NO WAY W7 can run on a machine which has 900mA/h battery. The power will jump from 100% to 0 with ONE SINGLE CLICK!
    Who wrote the info should be fired the next 1/100000000000000000000000 second!

  • Brandy
