The Samsung Galaxy Tab


Behold, the Samsung Galaxy Tab! The arch-nemesis of the infamous iPad!

As many of you know, I'm on the look-out for new portable devices, be it a mobile phone or a portable computer. When I stumbled across this, I thought perhaps it can serve both needs?

I've always wanted something with touch-capabilities, especially on such a large and vibrant screen. (Samsung is good on screens, I've heard) Also this is supposed to be a device with bigger gigabytes than Apple's iPad and thus faster for both surfing the web, and the occational games.

What I'm wondering is wether this device can serve as a phone or not? If it could, that'd be awesome. If it can't, it's still a good replacement for a portable computer or a netbook -- right?

Apple's devices often lack flash, is this true with the Galaxy Tab? I'd like to use flash-games and browse YouTube natively, and not just through some app.

Anyways, please tell me what you think about this device! Will it fit my needs?

  18. I've read about this thing a few days ago
    it looks awesome and his so many features the iPad won't see in years... not to mention it's actually worth its price not like the iPad or any apple product for that matter
    still I'm not going to buy it :D
    it's nothing like an expensive toy

  24. Looks good and already beats the ipad in terms of features a such. Not sure about whether or not it can be used a a phone but since that is one of those big features now then I would assume that is a the case.
