Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000, More Than Just A Large Android Handset?


The Apple iPad has been in need of some ‘wing clipping' for some time now. Even though it might not be available here legitimately, it's still one hell of a popular device. Samsung's highly anticipated Galaxy Tab actually managed to get itself here...

I’ve become quite the fan of the Galaxy Tab and tabbing in general even though the web browsing or gaming experience was nowhere near as fluid as the iPad’s. However the Rs. 38,000 (MRP) price tag is a bit unnerving. As well rounded a device as the Tab...

Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab preview: First look


Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab is Samsung's move onto the tablet warfield and luckily we are right here in the battle fray to give you first-hand scoop from the announcement event. Some might argue that it's rather a step down from laptops but...

Form factor: Tablet ; Size: 190.09 x 120.45 x 11.98mm, 380g ; Display: 16M colors 7” TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA resolution ; OS: Android 2.2 Froyo ; CPU: 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU with PowerVR SGX540 graphics accelerator, 512 MB of RAM ;...

Lighter and smaller, easier on the pocket ; Telephony (including 3G video calls) ; 3.2 MP camera with D1 video recording @ 30 fps and LED flash ; Android OS v2.2 Froyo ; Proper multitasking (though the iPad is getting that too in couple of months) ;...

The Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab is one pretty sleek device that suits its intended purpose perfectly. It's not running a proper desktop OS so those of you that hoped to throw away their laptops or netbooks after purchasing the Galaxy Tab are in no luck.

Great Internet browsing experience; HD video recording; good for reading e-books; good speakers

Too bulky to use as a phone; many applications not optimised for Tablet form; 3-megapixel camera isn't greEndat; expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Tab certainly lives up to the expectations of those who are seeking a speedy Tablet that offers web browsing, e-mail and HD video playback.

15 personal experiences with Samsung GalaxyTab 7"


When I considered the GalaxyTab I did not even know it is so much fun using it, but now I don't even leave the house without it. Although late, I believe there are couple of interesting notes to consider and have more fun with it. ...

Size, convernience, battery life

It loads and keeps many apps in the memory

Samsung Galaxy Tab with Verizon 3G: Don't leave home without it!


For someone who doesn't carry a giant purse around with them and thinks Apple has enough money already, the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab is the ideal tablet. I have been using my tablet daily for the past three months and I don't have a twinge of ...

Fast connection, Clear picture, Tons of free apps available; Expandable microSD slot

Kind of buggy with Hotmail; A little heavier than other tablets; Camera isn't great

The Only Android Tablet Worth Considering


Samsung has been a busy bee lately. While getting their Galaxy S lines of Android phones ready for distrubuting on almost every carrier in the US (as well as the rest of the world, I'm sure), their eggheads were working on a 7" tablet using the same...

Nice size, relatively quick, Swype keyboard, good speakers, high pixel density

Can be sluggish at times, slight blemish on screen, photo and video quality

Consumer review by:

Snazzy, but not very useful


I bought this hoping it would serve some basic functions while traveling: simple video editing, simple document editing, presentations, etc. I bought it at the same time as my Droid X. I replaced an iPhone due to signal and battery reliability issues.

Wow factor with your friends

Doesn't really do anything more or better than my android smartphone
