The Galaxy Tab and the Samsung Galaxy S II smart phone will be able to take advantage of the Samsung televisions' second tuner, which will turn them into a portable television to carry around the house. This would happen by connecting to the TV through a wireless network. So you'll have to be near the TV to make this work. No traveling around town with live television.

However, this new feature doesn't work with all models. Only the forthcoming D7000 and D8000 models will be able to offer this feature.
