Out of the blue Samsung revealed a brand new tablet model, the SMT-i9100, that won’t be reaching Europe or the US too soon. This device was created for Japanese carrier KDDI and it’s not the same as the Galaxy Tab, in case you’re wondering. Its specs are also different, but the OS is the same: Android 2.2.

This 450 gram slate will hit the market in early 2011, while local rival carrier NTT DoCoMo will release the Galaxy Tab at some point in the future. Here’s what the SMT-i9100 is all about:

Display: 7 inch WSVGA touchscreen, 1024 x 600 pixels
Memory: 512MB RAM, 4GB flash storage, microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
Camera: 2MP
Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Battery life: 2 hours, 12 hours in standby
OS: Android 2.2 with Ocean Observation UI
