Samsung and WoodWing announce cooperation for GALAXY Tab

The first results of the cooperation will be demonstrated to the public during the IFRA Expo in Hamburg, Germany, held on October 4 – 6, 2010.

Samsung, a global leader in mobile technology, and WoodWing Software, a supplier of innovative cross-media publishing solutions, today announced a cooperation to bring digital publications to Samsung’s brand-new smart media device, the GALAXY Tab.

GALAXY Tab
Available to consumers in Europe starting in October 2010, and soon available in the United States and Asia, the GALAXY Tab has a large 7-inch TFT display, for an exciting mobile viewing experience. Weighing in at only 380g, it includes 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and 32GB microSD expansion. The GALAXY Tab features a TouchWiz 3.0 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 numerous applications from Android Market.

Things are speeding up in the tablet publishing space, as expected.

Tools like Woodwing will become increasingly important, because they can support authoring content once and then distributing it across multiple tablet devices with multiple operating systems.

I believe the same will be true for content support agencies and service providers that can help clients navigate publishing to many app market places.
