Samsung Galaxy Tab commercial makes iPad owners drool. Battle of the tablet commercials

The Samsung Galaxy Tab was officially announced last week and first impressions is that it’s a worthy optional tablet compared to the iPad. Note I didn't’ say it was an iPad Killer as I don’t believe any future tablet will be an iPad killer as the iPad has way to much of a market share along with the thousands of apps via Apple’s App store. The iPad is here to stay. As we wait for the iPad to receive the iOS 4 upgrade, front and rear cameras, the iPad may be unstoppable to compete with. But until then the Galaxy Tab is making it’s case as the alternative must have tablet.

First there was the ipad + "Eye of the Tiger" music video preformed with the iPad and now we have the iPad Orchestra. The iPad Orchestra video features four musicians representing the Clarinet, Cello, Flute, and Violin which they are playing via the iPad and their awesome T-Shirts. They're playing "Sweet Dream" performed live for an audience on August 20, 2010 composed by Ilya Plavunov. Take a look.

As I stated in the iPad Eye of the Tiger video post, how amazing it would be if artist could use the iPad to preform shows instead if traditional music equipment. Well, it seems like that time [...]

Video: New Apple iPad app commercial shows Twitter but wait, there’s no official Twitter iPad app released yet

Take a look at the new Apple iPad is Delicious commercial below. It shows a variety of new and old iPad apps. Flipboard is featured along with a variety of other apps showing iPad gaming, drawing, and calculating capabilities. If you look at the 19 seconds mark it shows the Twitter "website" then the words friendly. The only problem is there is no official Twitter iPad app yet. I know the video wasn't necessarily about Twitter but it seem to be about iPad apps. Was it that important to show the iPad "tweeting" even though there is no official Twitter iPad app available yet? #justsayin
