White Samsung Galaxy S now on sale from Carphone Warehouse, plus 10-inch Galaxy Tab spotted

A new white version of the Samsung Galaxy S has launched, exclusively on Carphone Warehouse, as Big Sam moves in to capitalise on the void left by the white iPhone 4.

The South Korean giant, which cocked a snook at its rival across the Pacific with cheeky ad campaigns mocking the iPhone 4’s antenna issues, is now looking to deal a knockout blow at Apple’s latest delay of the white iPhone 4, now pushed back to spring next year.

Now before you get all excited, the phone isn’t entirely white, as the front remains as black as ever. It’s the back that has received the paintjob and looks rather weird. Best of both worlds, we suppose.

Customers can pick up the Galaxy S from £30 per month on a contract with most operators, including O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, but only through Carphone Warehouse for the time being.

The hot-selling smartie runs on Google’s Android operating system and boasts a capacious four-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz processor and five-megapixel camera with high-definition video recording.

Meanwhile, tech site Wired is reporting that it has spotted a 10-inch Galaxy Tab at the FPD International Green Device 2010 trade show in China, displayed alongside an eReader and a notebook. If this proves to be true, then it seems Samsung may be conceding that Steve Jobs was right after all that seven-inch panels were simply not optimal for a true tablet experience.
