Samsung's Super AMOLED Tablet Said To Be Called the S-PadLast seen in the mid-range Wave S8500 phone, Samsung's SUPER AMOLED screen is said to be used in their S-Pad tablet, which will have embedded 3G connectivity and ebooks galore when it supposedly goes on sale this August.

That display does sound intriguing. Samsung's super AMOLED screens are said to be five times brighter than the average LCD, and will perform 20 per cent better when used outside. Anyone who's struggled when reading a text outside will know how crucial Samsung's technology could prove.

The S-Pad is firmly in rumor-camp at the moment, though South Korean network SK Telecom is said to be offering it exclusively in the country. It'll measure 7-inches, and the ebooks will come from Kyobo Books, which is South Korea's largest chain of bookstores.

These rumors come after the Australian marketing manager for Samsung accidentally let slip that a tablet would appear later in the year, blabbing he thinks "the legs need to be far more powerful, for example an Atom-based product which has far greater flexibility, not to mention inputs and outputs."
