Maybe we’ll get to see silly people holding giant phones (tablets) against their heads to make phone calls afterall. Droidlife got a sneak peak at the user guide for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Tab and discovered that it was capable of making phone calls despite reports that the U.S. version of the device would not have this feature. Whichever the case, I’m sure the more determined users will find ways to look goofy and make calls through hacks or other VoIP applications.
Another thing to note in the user guide was the mention of Google Search. Verizon definitely has some type of deal with Microsoft since they have now replaced the default Google Search engine with Microsoft Bing in a few phones already – like the Samsung Fascinate and LG Vortex. So it’s nice to see that Google Search will still hold its ground on the first major Android tablet device.
Of course, what Verizon-branded device would be complete without the Verizon app suite. Yup, that’s right, the Samsung Galaxy Tab will also have VZ Navigator and VCAST Music and Videos. Also making an appearance is the Kindle app, ThinkFree Office Suite, NFL Mobile, and Slacker. I guess since the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be launched on or around November 1st on most major carriers, they need to try to make theirs stand out some way or another.
