Samsung takes on Apple with new Tab teaser video

Company mocks iPad 2’s lack of flash capabilities in new video

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an Android tablet take a jab at the Flash-less iPad, but it is a first for Samsung. In a teaser video released today, the company shows off what their newest tablet can do, yet still manages to slip in a nudge at Apple.

The 2 minute video shows off some highlights of Samsung’s newest tablet, which will supposedly replace everything we use (if the video is to be believed). In addition to running Flash and replacing cookbooks, the Galaxy Tab will apparently also put firemen out of business by rescuing cats from trees. And while the iPad 2 isn’t actually named in the video, it’s a bit hard to miss the ruffling Smart Cover.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 10.1 is set to hit the streets this Friday, and comes with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1” screen with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels and Android Honeycomb 3.1. The tablet is currently up for pre-order starting at $500; however, it will have to be seen whether Flash support will be enough to best the iPad 2.
