The high resolution and responsive, accurate capacitive touchscreen add up to a user experience that’s significantly better than a regular smartphone for browsing, multimedia and – thanks in no small part to Samsung’s custom apps – messaging. quote

Its crisp display, compact form factor, touch-friendly software and dual cameras undoubtedly have what it takes to win over the average tablet seeker. However, we still have some reservations right now.

By combining Android's tablet abilities with high performance and 3G capabilities, the Galaxy Tab is the most complete Android tablet available.

The Tab is like a compromise's evil twin, merging the worst of a tablet and the worst of a phone. It has all of the input problems of a tablet, with almost none of the consumption benefits.

With its relatively compact size it can be an excellent hi-tech companion on the go, and I truly enjoyed taking it everywhere with me. However, the Galaxy Tab has some serious flaws in its design that can’t be easily overlooked.

In truth, the Galaxy Tab is no match for the iPad. It's nowhere near as smooth, it's not as polished and remarkably, it's not even a match when it comes to value for money.

Excerpt from one of my many blog posts on this device: The Best Tablet Is the One You Have With You The Tab is roughly the same size as, but thicker than Amazon’s Kindle, which ironically I sold when I got my iPad. Prior to iPad ownership, my Kindle would go everywhere with me because of...

Great device. I wanted a dual core Honeycomb tablet, but I got a steal on this thing. It's faster than I thought. Pretty junk free, which is likely due to the wifi only model not getting molested by a cell provider. Samsung is good about not locking anything, so it's fairly moddable.

Though this is just a magnified version of the Galaxy phones, it's nice to see some of the native apps are designed with a bigger screen in mind. Feels nice to hold since it's as big as a DVD case and can be held with one hand.

I bought the Galaxy Tab 7" 3G from T-Mobile when it was first sold in the US. Feature packed with front & rear camera, GPS, mobile broadband, great audio from the speakers, bright crisp display, and excellent battery life. I've had absolutely no problems with it at all. It gets heavy...

I bought this device and sold it again within a few months (albeit for a similar price to what I paid, so that was good news, and an indication of the ongoing demand!). My first impressions of the device were good, in that it was small, and the build quality felt good. However, it was, and as I...

I might not have been so hard on this tablet if I hadn't already owned an iPad. The Galaxy Tab has many issues in my book, but I found the lack of good apps on the Android market, how fast the battery drained, and the awful cameras the worst. The one thing that I loved about it was the size. I...
