O2 is set to stock the Samsung Galaxy

People who have decided a tablet device rather than a traditional mobile is right for them may wish to recycle their phone and splash out on the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The innovative handset, powered by Android, will shortly be available through the O2 network, the company has announced.

Samsung's model, which acts as a portal for accessing files and browsing the web while on the go, features a seven-inch touchscreen.

Those who rely on an internet connection could find the product is perfect for them, as it comes with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as services such as Google Maps.

"At O2 we love offering customers a range of experiences and the Tab, bringing together Samsung and Android technology, will let customers access their content in a whole new way," says the firm's general manager of devices Steve Alder.

O2 was in the news recently after revealing it will link the world's most popular brands with their customers through a unique mobile marketing scheme.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "Tablets are becoming increasingly popular, and there are lots of good quality, high specification models available. If you want to upgrade to tablet technology, why not trade-in your old phone for cash?"
