BEIJING, Sept. 6 (Xinhuanet) -- Samsung displayed its tablet computers in Berlin's world leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances IFA.

It is aimed to compete with Apple's iPad, accordng to Bloomsberg news Monday.

The Samsung tablet is the first serious contender to challenge the dominant Apple's iPad based on the established order.

Sources say it uses a 7-inch display 1024x600, similar to that of iPad. While the iPad runs a version of Apple's iOS, the Galaxy Tab will run on its primary mobile OS competitor - Android.

A board member of a German-based company Deutsche Telekom AG which will offer the Samsung tablet said that the Samsung's Galaxy Tab will be more favorably priced than the iPad. He said "somewhat above 50 percent, 60 percent to 70 percent of what the iPad cost."

Berlin's internationally-known electronics and home appliances show IFA officially opened its door to public last Friday, highlighting new trends of digital products of tablet PCs and various tech gadgets.
