Even though we have to deal with 100-degree summers and 15-degree winters, hobos on the subway, and slow-walking tourists, sometimes it really pays off to be a New Yorker. Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Tab 10.1 won’t hit stores nationally until June 17, but a few lucky New Yorkers, and possibly some smart-shopping tourists, will be able to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as early as… → Read More
The comments on yesterday’s post concerning the Xoom’s bungled launch stated loud and clear that people want inexpensive Android tablets — or at least that the high MSRP was the Xoom’s undoing. The thought is that if you’re going to spend over $500 on a tablet, the iPad is the only choice, which therefore makes the $800 Xoom a no-sale. I sort of agree with that even… → Read More
During CES, Samsung said the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab (P1010) would come out Q1 of this year. Well, Q1 is almost over and we haven’t heard, nor seen anything about a price or shipping date. Those across the pond have recently found the P1010 up for pre-order on Amazon UK with an estimated ship date of March 31 and price of $477.

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of war. Better choose your side soon, too. The tablet wars are going to get nasty. Apple’s army is prepped, already backed by over 3 million zealous iPad owners. But the Google Android horde is quickly banding together and will soon offer countless weapons from several major CE houses and dozens of smaller camps. Google is also quietly forming the… → Read More
When we first heard about the Samsung Galaxy Tab, we had a great deal of excitement thinking of the features and UI and how useful it would be in the day-to-day. With all the great things the Tab will have over iPad (front and rear camera, smaller form factor, Froyo, massive 4,000mAh battery and a microSD slot), one couldn’t help await a test unit. → Read More
I’ll be the first to stand up and shout that hardware specs alone do not make or break devices — especially tablets. However, a rumor is circulating that states the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet will share most of the same specs with the Galaxy S smartphone including the 1GHz CPU and screen resolution. That’s bad news bears. That would mean the 7-inch tablet would have a nasty 480 x 800… → Read More
Samsung is conducting a lesson in Brand Identity 101. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet is basically a gigantic Galaxy S i9000 in the same way that the iPad is an oversized iPhone. That’s a good thing.
We’re not entirely sure if the Galaxy Tab was supposed to go official yet, seeing as the pic and announcement came from the Samsung South Africa Twitter feed, but here she is. Seven inches of… → Read More
