Advantages Great size, lovely screen, thousands of apps
Disadvantages Only Android 2.2
I had been looking into getting a tablet computer for some time ever since the Ipad came out. I have been into the shop looking at the Ipad countless times and weighing up the cost against the cool factor and trying to decide if it would be just another gadget that I would buy and use constantly for a week before the novelty wore off.
There was one other big problem with the Ipad for me and that is that no matter how desirable it might be I really didn't want to be trapped into having to use itunes again which I detest with a passion. I also wasn't overly keen on the size as I found it quite heavy and cumbersome when holding it.
I really like the look of the Galaxy tab and actually much prefer it to the look of the Ipad but this will be a matter of personal taste. The screen takes up the majority of the front with a black bezel which is about an inch thick going the whole way round. The back of the tab is completely white which I really like and the white is nice and shiny and really makes it stand out.
Unfortunately the white back is made entirely of plastic and whilst it is solid feeling and doesn't look cheap in the slightest for the amount of money Samsung are charging I feel like they could have used a little more premium materials.
The tab comes with two cameras, one on the back and one on the front for video calling. Neither of these are particulary great though with the front one being 1.3MP and the back being just 3MP. There is a flash and whilst the pictures are not the sharpest it is nice to have the cameras even though I don't use them very often.
My one comes with 16GB of onboard storage but it also has a micro SD slot so that I can load on movies onto that instead of taking up onboard storage.
