Last week I was mailed a Samsung Galaxy Tab via @samsungmobileus to test and review mainly because of a tweet sent by @HarrietCammock asking would I recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
@marioarmstrong @chipperd @BrothaTech @urbanreporter @waynesutton @SoldierKnowBest Would u recommend te Galaxy Tab frm Samsung
My response at that time was from what I read about the Samsung Galaxy Tab it seems like a great device but I don’t think nothing can compete with the iPad do to the usability and the apps. Now after using the Samsung Galaxy Tab for a few days my opinion has changed. The Galaxy Tab being at 7 inches running Andriod 2.2 is a great device for reading, browsing the web, checking email and being productive on the go. In terms of the applications, it’s comes down to what is available on Apple’s iTunes app store vs Google’s growing Android Market place. There’s also the data coverage options and cost but I will leave that up to you and will stick to comparing the device.
I’m still getting use to the Samsung Galaxy Tab and will post more reviews about it over the next two weeks before I have to return the device to Samsung. In the mean time, here’s my Samsung Galaxy Tab unboxing video that makes my iPad sad.
Do you own a Samsung Galaxy Tab or another Android powered tablet? If so what are your favorite apps? Also if you have any questions about the Galaxy Tab let me know in the comments.
