Hence, I could not add this device as emulator device. The problem is that Samsung SDK is not available as default SDK Add-on in Eclipse. Here you could see the snapshot of Eclipse’s SDK Manager.

I don’t know what the problem is, but looks like the process stop in fetching.
So, again I googled another way to do it.

As instructed, I download the file, extract, and copy into Android SDK Add-on directory. In case of my PC (Win7), the directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\add-ons\
And voila, Samsung Galaxy SDK and Emulator is available.
Hope this help whoever is needed.
I welcome for any critics or comments.
