The video is boring. I’m not exaggerating. However, it happens to be the most complete demo of a polished Android tablet without any marketing bull. It’s just some dude running through the major apps. That’s it. It actually does a fine job of prove Android as a practical tablet OS. It shows the mobile operating system as responsive, well suited for the tablet format, and overall usable — all items that cannot be said about the HP Slate after watching its video demo from earlier today.
Of course the demo is probably highly scripted and not likely to show any downsides to to the product. But that’s fine. This video at least shows that Samsung knows that it must show off the Tab’s raw capabilities. That’s what’s going to sell tablets.
