KT to offer Identity Tab tablet in South Korea

KT, a cell carrier in South Korea, has decided to spice up the tablet market in that part of the world by rolling out their Identity Tab (what’s up with the Tab naming convention?) – a 7-inch Android 2.2-powered tablet that is somewhat similar to the Galaxy Tab, although it will target those living in that part of the world only. It will ship with a DMB TV tuner that ought to let you enjoy over-the-air digital video in the country, and when attached to KT, will be accompanied by a WiBro (WiMAX) card for 4G connectivity. Other hardware specifications include 8GB of internal memory which is half the amount of that found on the iPad and Galaxy Tab. You might not find it to be that zippy though with a mere 1GHz Snapdragon processor within, but surely a 3-megapixel camera and an SD memory card slot will help close the deal? The Identity Tab has already started to ship today for $250 a pop as an unlocked device, but if you want to stick to KT like a barnacle, then it is free albeit with a $22 monthly 4G plan alongside a generous 50GB cap.
