Google generally does not attempt to filter out adult content on its Android Marketplace, but this screenshot of a ‘Porn’ tab on the Samsung Galaxy Tab will probably have some conservative customers doing a double take. However, it is not a cause for concern: after all, looks can be deceiving.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab may be a wonderful device, but it seems that even the best engineers and writers make designs slips every now and then. And while this particular slip below may be nothing more than an honest mistake, it probably managed to fool many into thinking that the Galaxy Tab came with a certain ‘bonus feature’ which would have the family-friendly iOS-based devices reeling.

Of course, there is no way the Galaxy Tab would come with a dedicated button for users to access some rather questionable content. Rather, this little incident came about due to an issue with the translation over at Samsung. Apparently, ‘Start’ is ‘Pornire’ when translated into the Romanian language, and Samsung may have felt that it was too long a word to fit under the ‘Home’ icon. Hence, ‘Pornire’ was subsequently shortened to ‘Porn’, and the result is that most of us get to have s little laugh at Samsung’s expense.

However, whether any heads will roll over at Samsung for this unfortunate slip-up remains to be seen. But for now, it would probably be in everyone’s best interests to remember that the ‘Porn’ button in the Galaxy Tab will only take one back to the Home screen, and not to a secret, private repository of NSFW content.
