Default Samsung Galaxy Tab

http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/02/s...y-tab-preview/
  • Android 2.2 running TouchWiz 3.0
  • 7-inch TFT LCD with 1024 x 600 resolution (WSVGA)
  • Weighs 380 grams
  • 1GHz Cortex A8 processor
  • 16GB or 32GB internal storage
  • microSD expansion for up to 32GB additional storage
  • Front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera and rear 3 megapixel camera with flash
  • 4,000mAh battery
  • 3G data / voice (there's a speakerphone and Bluetooth for phone calls, but no earpiece)
  • 5GHz dual-band 802.11n WiFi
  • Standard back color is white, carriers might offer different colors
  • Full HD video playback
  • There's a 30-pin dock connector on the bottom that allows for HDMI, USB, and docking accessories (a car dock at least is planned)



Do want. I hope there is a WiFi only model. So far, the reviews/previews are overall quite positive.

I haven't seen any pricing mentioned anywhere or potential release dates, but it looks like it's a pretty decent size. At 7 inches it looks to be slightly more portable than the iPad while offering almost all of the same functionality including Flash. I like that it has Amazon's Kindle functionality built-in so if you have a Kindle you read books on, you can use this and keep your collection going, even syncing between using the Kindle software on a desktop versus your Galaxy Tab. On top of that it still browses the web, offers Android Market and pretty much acts like a scaled up Galaxy S phone.



I REALLY want to play with one and see what it's like. But I already am pretty sure this will be a "must buy" for me.

I'm really feeling it's a must buy as well. While I like the smaller form factor of phones, I'd love something like this that's bigger but not too big.

The biggest things I'd want out of something like this is the eReader capability, with the Android Market apps and web browsing as bonus features. Sitting on the sofa, pulling up the occasional Youtube video or surfing the web, then going back to reading a book, sounds like it will be the perfect device.

That's why I'll buy some sort of Android tablet
