Samsung tabs partnerships with Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Hulu

Samsung's answer to the iPad--the Galaxy Tab--will hit the ground running when it is introduced later this year thanks to partnerships with Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC-WI), Hulu and Adobe.

The top two cable operators will make their content available on the new tablet and Samsung connected TVs which will be able to show programming without a set-top box. They will also let subscribers use the Galaxy Tab as a remote control. Hulu will make its Hulu Plus service available on the tablet and Samsung phones and Adobe said that Samsung connected TVs will support Adobe Flash.
