I’s late I know , blame my hectic working schedule. But Samsung’s hotly discussed tablet, Galaxy Tab is one worthy stuff to be mentioned here. Of all tablet out there, it is the tablet that could give iPad some of competition to make both a better product.
Alas the spec, I bet you all already knew it. It’s running on Android 2.2, no surprise here. At it’s core is Cortex A8 1 GHz processor (erm, no hummingbird like Samsung Galaxy S), 512 MB of RAM and 16/32 GB internal storage which expandable with memory card.
On the camera, it has 3 Megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash at the back and 1.3 Megapixel Camera at the front which made video call possible (suddenly video call become a must feature, you know why). No AMOLED screen here, but instead is 7-inch TFT-LCD multi-touch display with 1024×600 pixel resolution. Wifi and 3G connection is standard feature , which mean there is no model with wifi only like iPad. Battery can lasted for 7 hours for move play.
HD video content is supported by a wide range of multimedia formats (DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264 and more)
For reading pleasure, Galaxy tab has so called Readers Hub – which consolidates e-reading applications such as eBooks, magazines, and newspapers. As starter, eReaders from Kobo, PressDisplay and Zinio are available to be used in this tablet. Over 2 million books,2,500 titles of magazines and more than 1,600 newspapers are available at launch.
Unconfirmed price is expected to be around $200-$400 with contract to telco. It will be released first in the UK at coming monts

If you already know Droid 2, it is pretty much the same smartphone externally and internally, except the network stuff, GSM vs CDMA.
