conclusion:Pass on it

This is not a bad tablet, and if you really want a 10-inch Android tablet, you could do a lot worse. But for the same price, you can get an iPad 2, which has a wider selection of apps, a greater range of accessories, and a clearer upgrade path, making it a far better option for the vast majority of users.

Slimmer than the iPad, it's far and away the nicest Honeycomb tablet to date, and one Android fans shouldn't overlook.

Sleek, sexy, and light, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 gets as close to the iPad 2 as any Android tablet before it.

The Wi-Fi–only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest Honeycomb tablet available, and it's very capable, but its Touchwiz UI means Android updates are in doubt.

Those trying to decide between the iPad 2 and a Honeycomb tablet would do well to give the Tab 10.1 a hard look. I have not run across anything I wanted to do on a tablet that I cannot do with the Tab, so it is a viable alternative to the iPad 2.

Yes, it lacks the ease of wired connectivity other Honeycomb tablets offer, and it doesn’t have a clever battery-equipped Keyboard Dock like the ASUS, but the vast majority of the time it’s bulk – or lack of – that makes the difference. Samsung has made a tablet that feels like a tablet...

If you're not into the locked down app store mentality of Apple, where only the saintly apps are approved, or just prefer the Android OS to anything out of Cupertino, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is your best choice in an increasingly crowded market.

I think this is the first truly attractive looking Android tablet. Sadly, the version of Honeycomb on this tablet is rather buggy and feels rushed (Samsung claims it's running stock Android 3.0 -- but some weird bugs between this and a colleague's Motorola Xoom make me think there's been some...

I wanted to submit my review after owning my Galaxy Tab 10.1 for a while. Now that I've used it for a sufficiently long time for the purposes for which I bought it, I'm ready to offer my opinion: I love it! I was looking for a tablet for one main reason: I wanted to read with my wife. My wife...

A finer piece of hardware than the acclaimed iPad 2 with a thinner and lighter design along with a better processor, better cameras, and a better screen. The still-buggy Android 3.1 Honeycomb software is the only detractor as app selection is much less than on the iPad. Still, the Tab 10.1 shows...

First I have to preface this review. I have had the device for just shy of 1 week so it still has the new car feeling. Additionally I am a bit of a google fanboi. With that said I really did try to speak on this device without Bias as I have used both the iPad and iPad2 for work and they are...

It comes with Android 3.0 which is okay, I have no problems with it. Sometimes it freezes on me though and I have to reset it. But all in all, it's pretty responsive and the browsing is excellent. Using Pulse and the Engadget, Gmail apps are great. The only quarrel I have with it is you can't...
