|Additional Technical Informations|
Samsung's 7-inch Android tablet is a serious contender to the Apple iPad, boasting two cameras, Flash compatibility, and a more convenient size.
The Tab behaves more like a supersize Android phone than a Netbook alternative. The Android OS and its apps aren't yet optimized for the larger screen. Depending on your plan, you may be in for a two-year contract and a commitment to monthly charges.
The Galaxy Tab is a beautiful product with features that will make iPad owners envious, but its in-between size and possible carrier commitments hold it back from broad appeal.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab, introduced in October by Sprint (also now available through Verizon and other carriers), was the first serious competitor to the Apple iPad. But this one uses the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system, which has several advantages over the iPad's proprietary Apple software, especially allowing the use of the Flash video player that iPad and iPhone devices don't support. The Galaxy Tab has a comparably bright and beautiful color display, but the screen is 7 inches in diameter, compared with 10 inches for the iPad. That makes the Galaxy Tab smaller and easier to carry around, which is the main reason I chose it. I like to take it with me wherever I go. Most of the cool apps (applications) that are available for the iPhone and iPad are also now offered in the Android Market, which can be accessed from the tab either over the built-in Wi-Fi or through a Sprint data connection. The Sprint data connection costs $30 a month for up to 2 gigs of data, or $60 for 5 gigs. No contract is required if you pay full price for the tab ($499 at Sprint and Best Buy). For $299, though, the Galaxy Tab comes with a 2-year contract for at least the $30-a-month Sprint 3G data service. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Tab is not configured to use Sprint's new Wi-Max 4G data service. Overall, this is a great Android tablet with decent battery life and bright, crisp, clear high-definition video playback. For people already using the latest Android phones, the best description I can give is that this essentially is just a large-screen version of your smart phone without the phone service. It can send and receive text messages, however, and there are third-party apps that can add voice calls. For me, it has eliminated the need to carry a laptop wherever I go, and there is even a keyboard dock available for it that adds a full-size keyboard when you need to do serious writing. Major disadvantages: Some apps are not yet optimized for the tab's larger screen, which means that they show up the same size as the smaller phone screens. But app developers are working on this, and the Weather Channel app, for instance, has been upgraded in the past few days to fill the tab's screen. The tab does not run the new Android Honeycomb operating system that was designed specifically for tablets, and there has been no word as to whether an upgrade to Honeycomb would be available or even possible on the Galaxy tab as it is now configured.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000)(Sprint)
and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this somewhat expensive tablet. The Samsung Galaxy Tab features a 3.2 megapixel primary camera with a single LED flash on the rear and a forward-facing 1.3 megapixel camera for video chatting. The 3.2MP camera did a good job with most photos I took, and it was best at taking shots outdoors. Some indoors shots had poor white balance. The Galaxy Tab's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly two days of regular use.
I'm a big fan of the Galaxy Tab for two reasons: I like the Android operating system, and I like the Tab's smaller, more pocketable size. It won't fit in regular pockets, but it's easy enough to slide the device right into a coat pocket. It's also less cumbersome to take out at a dinner table and show somebody something. But the smaller display comes with some setbacks when it comes to app support.
Battery life was just fine for me. I typically don't complain if I can get a full day of use of an gadget before the battery dies. My biggest issue with the device is that it doesn't offer a whole lot more than a high-end Android smartphone. In fact, many of the features are the exact same. And some Android smartphones have better cameras.
The price is also a bit too high for me. I don't see why the Tab should cost much more than a smartphone simply because it's bigger. I'd be much more interested in purchasing the Tab if it was priced in the $199-$249 area.
If you're considering a tablet purchase, I highly suggest testing both a Galaxy Tab and an iPad to see which meets your needs more. While I prefer the Tab's size, the iPad offers more tablet-oriented applications and a larger feature set, which makes it my tablet of choice.
Samsung Galaxy is the first competitor of the Apple iPad, a tablet in the mobile market, almost all the features and usefulness have in common, and the following are some advantages and disadvantages that will discuss about the features and explanation of the Galaxy Tab
1. In terms of the size of the Galaxy has an advantage because the smaller size and lighter than the Apple iPad
2. Storage capabilities that rival its competitors namely Notebook, with storage capacities ranging from 32Giga Byte up to 64 Giga Bytes.
3. Camera used: Home - 1.3Megapixel for video conferencing, Rear - 3 Megapixel camera that comes with "LED flash".
4. Galaxy has a good media support, because it can open video formats like DivX, Xvid, and WMV, where IPAD is not able to support file.
1. Display screen is less than the maximum because it can only display 1024x600 screen resolution, as we all know the standard application used to make the 1024x768 resolution.
2. Supporting applications that are still relatively small compared with the iPad, because not many developers who create programs Android Applications.
3. Battery capacity is less durable than its competitors (Notebook). Notebook can hold up to 10 hours, Galaxy can hold up to 7 hours.
At Samsung Galaxy uses Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 technology to support performance and give you an edge on this gadget. Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 technology is the basis for selection of touch-interface, as well as the placement of widgets on the screen. It is also responsible for the haptic feedback on Tab Galaxy (ie, a small vibration that recognizes when you've touched the screen). Tobol will light up just below the screen, Menu, Home, Back, and Search and will issue a response to the vibration when you touch the buttons.
In addition to software features discussed above, the Samsung Galaxy has several devices that can be used as a complement of this gadget, that is, the HDMI connector used to connect to the screen for a larger size, Jack audio-output used to connect through the voice of the speaker to enlarge the existing players in this Galaxy, MicroSD external memory card slot as an addition to the external data storage capacity as well as the microphone used as a supplement at the time of recording video.
I have nothing more to say than EXCELLENT!! This Tablet is the Perfect size for on the go. Fits in most Jeans, for men, and purses for woman, who want to take there daily lives on the go with them. People ask me, why did i buy the Galaxy Tab if i had an android phone that could do pretty much everything. I told them, Because It's like having a mini Laptop on the Go, with MORE Features than what a cell phone has, and the bigger screen!
The picture quality is excellent, Battery Lasts 2-3 days with mild usage. Easy to Handle and use.. Overall Rate it a 10/10!!! Must Buy!
This is The Best Tablet i've ever used at the best price and Cheapest Monthly Fee.
If you were thinking about buying this Samsung Tablet or the new IPAD, Don't double think like i did! Just buy the Samsung Tablet. Better price, plan, and Smaller/thinner size where can fit in alot of places opposed to the big bulky Ipad.
Very satisfied with this product and I don't really like touchscreens. This beats apple products hands down. Very fast and responsive the capabilities seem to just keep expanding. It just proves itself useful again and again. Tons of free apps. the swipe keyboard is lighting fast when you get the hang of it.
The internet runs great even on weak or slow connections.
the size is good not quite pocket size yet not really a pain to lug around.
cons: battery life (but that's no surprise)
some software is finicky and its difficult to keep track of multi-tasks.
all around Samsung has got a grade A piece of hardware complemented beautifully by Google's Android.
