Review Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch Tablet/MID

 

Mini Tablet. After Apple set off the tablet craze with the iPad,

Android 2.2; Multitasking Enabled; Supports Swype Text Input; Sim and MicroSD Card Slots are Well Placed; HDMI Output via Micro USB Cable; Various Accessories; Telephone/VOIP Supported; Convenient Digital Camera; Screen-Side Camera for Video Chatting;...

Bulky Case, Hardly Fits in Pocket; Glossy Scratch-Prone Case; Inconvenient Automatic Brightness Adjustment; Screen Freezes every Now and Then; Battery Not Easy to Remove; Somewhat Slow Landscape-View Adjustment

The currently best-known alternative would be the Apple iPad, even though its 10-inch screen should put it in a different class altogether. Dells Streak 5“ is the closest to measuring up to the Galaxy Tab, although it's still only available with...

Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi

 

The Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi Android tablet offers a bright, responsive 7-inch screen, GPS, Bluetooth, and full access to Google's suite of mobile apps, including Android Market.

This Galaxy Tab is an Android 2.2 tablet living in an Android 3.0 world, and bigger and better tablets are priced in the same ballpark.

Samsung's 3G-free version of its 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab, offers an appealing mix of price and horsepower, but it's overshadowed by the wave of inexpensive Android 3.0 devices.

Samsung Galaxy Tab (AT&T)

 

AT&T's version of Samsung's Android tablet does little to distinguish itself from the others.

It almost feels like AT&T released the Galaxy Tab on its network just so it wouldn't feel left behind. While it's nice that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is now available on all the major carriers, there's nothing that truly distinguishes AT&T's version from...

Samsung Galaxy Tab - The AnandTech Review

 

The iPad started shipping in April, and since then it has basically had the tablet market to itself. Literally, in the six months after the iPad's release, it didn't have a single direct competitor. Dell launched the Streak shortly after the iPad, but...

Samsung Galaxy Tab (US Cellular)

 

The U.S. Cellular Galaxy Tab is physically identical to the Sprint model, except for a U.S. Cellular label on the back. The specs are the same, too. Just like Sprint's device, this is a slab of shiny white plastic with a black bezel surrounding its...

No bloatware. Inexpensive low-data plan. Carrier gets great subscriber ratings

Expensive service plan for moderate data users. Questionable upgrade path with the 'Honeycomb' Android upgrade coming in 2011

U.S. Cellular lives up to its friendly rep with a squeaky-clean version of the best Android tablet, but it charges pretty high rates for moderate-to-heavy data users.

Samsung Galaxy Tab (Verizon Wireless)

 

Editors' note: Due to the changing competitive landscape, we've lowered the Tab's overall score to 6. Check out CNET Tablet page for our latest tablet reviews.

Samsung's 7-inch Android tablet is a serious contender to the Apple iPad, boasting two cameras, Flash compatibility, and a more convenient size.

The Tab behaves more like a supersize Android phone than a Netbook alternative. The Android OS and its apps aren't yet optimized for the larger screen. Depending on your plan, you may be in for a two-year contract and a commitment to monthly charges.

The Galaxy Tab is a beautiful product with features that will make iPad owners envious, but its in-between size and possible carrier commitments hold it back from broad appeal.

Samsung Galaxy Tab

 

Remember how cynics called the iPad an oversized iPod Touch? We all know now what a ridiculous assertion that was. But the comparison is more apt for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the second consumer tablet PC to become available from all four national...

Fits in an inside jacket pocket ; 7-inch screen has perfect aspect ratio for widescreen movies ; Android 2.2 Froyo OS ; Long battery life ; Snappy Web browsing

Poor 3.2 MP camera with no zoom, HD video recording ; Little Android optimization for larger screen ; No Wi-Fi-only versions available ; Screen washes out at off angles ; Proprietary dock connector instead of microUSB ; Overpriced

Samsung's new Galaxy Tab challenges the iPad with a smaller, Android-powered design, but comes up short on value, and feels like a supersized phone without the phone.

Samsung Galaxy Tab (T-Mobile)

 

T-Mobile's version of Samsung's sleek tablet throws in free text messaging and Wi-Fi sharing, making it a good choice for heavy data users.

T-Mobile doesn't do much with software or packaging to make its Galaxy Tab stand out from Verizon and Sprint's offerings. However, the carrier's data plans clearly favor users with either a huge appetite for mobile broadband or a desire for a few short...

Samsung Galaxy Tab (Verizon Wireless)

 

Verizon's version of this 7-inch Android tablet offers strong 3G performance, free mobile hotspot functionality, and an economical price over the long run.

With a good selection of tablet-optimized apps, access to the Android Market, and a brilliant high-res screen, the Galaxy Tab is the only real iPad competitor on the market right now. What we like about the Verizon version in particular is its textured...
