Galaxy Tab ships in Romania with a porn button

Written by Nick Farell

Lost in translation
Translators for Samsung Galaxy Tab will probably have to clear out their desk and collect their P45s after a cock-up on the interface for the Romanian version. In Romanian the word for “start” is “Pornire” so the translators seem to have thought it was OK to shorten that to “Porn”.

So users in Romania will start their tabs by hitting the porn button. We know that the Internet is for porn but it is a little embarrassing that Samsung seems to think that it should stick a porn button on its tablet.

This information, which seems to be an unintentional mistake of the UI translators, was found by the folks of Mobilissimo.ro as they checked out the tablet during a promotional tour of the device in the Eastern European country.

Samsung should apologise for that mistake. It's realy embarrassing for a company like samsung to do such a mistake
Probably my opinion is subjective because i'm from Roumania

I'm from Romania and I think all tablets and smartphones should get a Porn button!

Hahahahaha! After reading the title I suspected as much... anyway, if its signal doesn't drop while holding it with one hand (think iPhone 4), I assume people won't mind. After all, the button is named after what the device will be used for.

It's not a mistake, it's being honest. Come to think of it, browsers should change "new tab" to "more porn".
