While there has been a lot of spates and spikes brewing in the tables of Samsung and Apple right now because of the legal slaying off each other, Samsung never grow weary in popping out new devices after another. While Apple introduces new toys year after year or two, Samsung on the other hand releases three or four times a year, one a better sleeker, thinner device than the other.
Thanks to the ever dynamic OS in the form of Android. The search for the best slate to encapsulate the OS has been a obviously favorable to the consuming public.
Let's see what is new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has to offer under its hood:
First off, at 9.7 x 6.7 x 0.34 inches, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a little wider than the iPad 2 (9.5 x 7.3 inches), although suffice to say, it has the same thickness. In the weight department, the Tab is a hair lighter, coming in at 1.24 pounds to the iPad 2's 1.35 pounds. It's 1280 x 800 WXGA display offered vibrant, popping colors and deep blacks, plus wide viewing angles. The specs is inviting so far, but having no user-accessible MicroSD Card slot means that you are stuccoed with either 16GB or 32GB of memory. It also has 3-MP and 1.3-MP cameras and the rear-facing one can only record up to 720p. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 rocks a 1-GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor backed by 1GB of RAM, which I found snappy enough to complement its WiFi functionality when playing video streaming sources.
At a 20grand price point, the value for money largely depends on the targeted user demographics. I just feel it inadequate for any tab for that matter not to have a phone functionality option. While people just considered a tab as a backup for their standard computing(e.g., laptop, desktop), I want mine to be a backup of both my laptop and a phone. But then again, maybe it's just me.
