cd command in terminal will work as oneway of doing this.
If wanting right click open terminal here in nautilus (not sure if you are using nautilus).
[SOLVED] add "Open terminal here" to Nautilus right click menu? - Ubuntu Forums

In Linux, commands are usually installed in /bin, /usr/bin, or /usr/local/bin, depending on how important it is / how it is installed.
For a terminal, you probably have xterm installed (probably /usr/bin/xterm), which is the most basic terminal. If you're using Ubuntu, you also have Gnome Terminal (/usr/bin/gnome-terminal) available.

The Samsung Galaxy isn't like an iPad, it's an Android smartphone. I have one.
If you have Ubuntu, you can run a terminal from Applications/Accessories/Terminal. I assume you're trying to root your Galaxy, and you need a little more than Terminal for that, but it's a start.

To the OP: You weren't very clear in your description above. If you are running a Galaxy Tab with the original Android OS, then there are a couple of CLI utilities that you can use. I have the Mesmerize, a Samsung Galaxy S phone, and I've installed an application called "Terminal Emulator" from the Android Market. As noted above, unless you root your device, you will only be able to do things as the user. I have another app called "ConnectBot" that allows connection to another system (possibly the Ubuntu you are referring to) via SSH (Secure Shell). It does not require rooting of your phone.
If you have actually managed to install Ubuntu Linux onto your Galaxy Tab, then you should be advanced enough to know how to open a terminal session or download a terminal client using apt-get.
