Though the gadget is created to play rival to Apple’s iPad, it is a different species in reality. Some call it a bridge between large tablets and smart phones. The small 7-inch LCD screen with 1024×600 pixels WSVGA resolution acts as a proof to this fact. The Tab runs on Android 2.2 and has a front facing camera. The 3 MP camera on the back with LED flash is a bonus. Just pick it up and feel the lightness of the 380 grams device, just 0.47″ thick.
Features include a slim pocket fitting body of 0.47″, 7-inch (1024x 600 pixels) touch screen display. There is a front camera for video conferencing and a back camera of 3 megapixels with flash for fine video quality. Other features include a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16 gigabytes onboard memory and to top it all off, the tablet lives on Google OS. This tablet will also feature the latest version of Adobe Flash (10.1).
The best part of this device is that it is available on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. For the techies, the optional accessories such as a docking station with HDMI port, external keyboard and car dock are premiums. When considering the speed of this tablet you can pretty much compare it to many of the newer model smart phones because it works similar. Comparable to the iPad, the Samsung tablet has a widescreen display, calendar, weather, mail inbox and a few more features. As an addition, it also has video chat, DLNA sharing and Flash not featured on iPads. This will certainly make a huge impact in the market. After looking at all these positive aspects, you might ask if any pitfalls exist. Yes, the price; though it is a novelty item for most of us, the price is still a big question mark in the aspects of affordability. Usually the introductory prices are unbelievable when the product is declared, but it turns out to be less when launched in the market.
Look into the hardware of this device. Users will find that every app is already pre-formatted and will not require any additional coding. This is good news for gamers and web addicts. Similar to the iPad and smart phones, you can read full magazines, interact and chat, create and construct content on your tablet. To give a glamorous touch and protection to the gadget, cases made of leather, silicone skins and rubber are introduced in the market. Keep your tablet protected from dents, scratches and other damage using the original case. Another additional accessory for this gadget is a screen protector. The screen guard is an essential accessory for any screen. It protects the screen from smudges and scratches. The screen protector is clear in color, which does not appear different from the screen itself. Screen protectors are easily replaced and will not damage the screen in any way.
After talking about the brighter side of this tablet, one must accept that there is still room for improvement. If compared to its rival, the company has to come up with more variants in storage capacities. It is true that the Samsung Galaxy stands on the higher side when it comes to features, but Samsung has to rethink its prices due to the sensitivity of the market.
