Real Rival against iPad - Samsung's Galaxy Tab
Apple's hot-selling iPad now has its first real competitor in the tablets market: the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Samsung Galaxy Tab is to be competitively priced with iPad. The Galaxy Tab uses Google's Android OS, is a good-looking slate with a vivid color screen that can handle many of the tasks typically performed on a laptop including email, social networking, web surfing, photo viewing, and video playback. It also can run a wide variety of third-party apps.
The Samsung Tab has a 7-inch screen vs the 9.7-inch display on Apple iPad. It seems to be a small difference, but the numbers are deceptive, because screen sizes are always described using diagonal measurements. That's a disadvantage of the Samsung Tablet, it allows the entire unit to be much smaller and lighter, and thus more comfortably used in hand.
Samsung Galaxy Tab contains the two most-wanted capabilities missing in the iPad: camera and the Adobe Flash support.
The Galaxy Tab is a rectangular slate about two inches shorter and three inches narrower than the iPad. It is also a bit thinner. It weighs less than a pound, compared with 1.5 pounds for the iPad. While its screen is smaller, it has similar resolution with the iPad.
The Galaxy Tab screen is sharp and generally responsive to touch, though a bit slower than the iPad's screen.
Samsung Galaxy Tab's battery can last up to 8 or 9 hours with Wi-Fi on. However iPad has about 10 hours battery life with one charge for regular usage.
The Tab has a 3-megapixel rear camera with flash and a 1.3-megapixel front camera mainly for video calls.
The Tab uses the latest version of Android, and it generally worked very smoothly with the tablets from Samsung.
