DivX and Samsung Electronics recently announced at the IFA trade show that the GALAXY Tab is the world’s first DivX Certified® tablet. The Android-powered GALAXY Tab will now power DivX HD video playback at home or on the go.

Available to consumers first in Europe late September 2010 and soon after in the United States and Asia, the GALAXY Tab has a large 7-inch TFT display, which delivers an unrivaled screen quality for a better viewing experience. Weighing in at only .84 pounds (380g), it includes 16 GB or 32GB of internal storage and 32 GB MicroSD expansion.

The GALAXY Tab features a TouchWIZ user interface, WiFi, GPS, rear and front facing cameras and also acts as a mobile phone. In addition, as an Android-powered device, the GALAXY Tab provides access to various applications from Android Market.

To enjoy high-quality DivX video on the Samsung GALAXY Tab with no file conversion needed, consumers can load their video libraries of both standard definition and HD movies in the DivX format on the internal and external memory and then watch their collections anywhere they choose.

The GALAXY Tab will also connect directly to other DivX Certified devices, such as HDTVs, turning it into a powerful entertainment gateway in the living room. It will also support the secure playback of major Hollywood titles in the DivX format from leading studios.

“DivX has become a must-have feature on every kind of consumer electronics device, and we’re excited to enter the burgeoning tablet market with Samsung’s GALAXY Tab, a great product that offers an incredible experience to users,” said Matt Milne, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, DivX, Inc. “Now consumers throughout Asia, Europe and the United States will be able to enjoy their DivX movie collection on a breathtaking 7-inch screen.”

“We are extremely proud to debut our first tablet at IFA 2010 with leading multimedia partners like DivX,” said Younghee Lee, Senior Vice President, Samsung Electronics. “The GALAXY Tab is truly a ground-breaking product, and we know that our customers will especially enjoy the ability to enjoy their libraries of DivX HD video at home or on the go.”
