A new concept of mobility for media:
As a new category of device, the Samsung GALAXY Tab brings a wealth of mobile experiences. Its striking 7-inch TFT-LCD display delivers exciting mobile experience for watching films, viewing pictures, e-reading or sharing documents. In design, its light (380g) build provides perfect portability, with its svelte dimensions making it easy to grip and use. Supporting the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.1, the Samsung GALAXY Tab fully supports swift, seamless viewing of every single page of the web.

Digital Library:
The 'Readers Hub,' Samsung's unique e-reading application, provides easy access to a vast digital library - from classical literature to the latest bestsellers and reference materials. At the same time, Samsung unveils 'Media Hub,' a gateway to a world of films and videos, and 'Music Hub,' an application giving access to a wide range of music tunes.

Powerful, always-on communication
With 3G HSUPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0, the Samsung GALAXY Tab enhances users' mobile communication on a whole new level. Video conferencing and push email on the large 7-inch display make communication more smooth and efficient. For voice telephony, the Samsung GALAXY Tab turns out to be a perfect speaker phone on the desk, or a mobile phone on the move via Bluetooth headset.

Multimedia:
Powered by a Cortex A8 1.0GHz application processor, the Samsung GALAXY Tab is designed to deliver high performance whenever and wherever you are. At the same time, HD video content is supported by a wide range of multimedia formats (DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264 and more) which maximizes the joy of entertainment.

Camera:
While a front-facing camera allows for face-to-face video telephony over 3G, a rear-facing camera captures still images and video that you can edit, upload and share, all without any hassle. As online content and creativity explodes, the Samsung GALAXY Tab is the best portable solution for every lifestyle that needs a constant connection.

Hardware:
Processor: Cortex A8 1GHz Hummingbird. Internal memory: 2GB plus a 16GB microSD card, 802.1b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3-megapixel camera on the back, and several sensors (accelerometer, automatic lighting, etc.measures 7.48" x 4.74" x 0.47" and weighs 13.58 ounces. The capacitive touch screen is WSVGA TFT (600x1024), and seems about as bright and sharp as the iPad

I would ignore the other review, this tablet is the best on the market at the moment and blows the Ipad out of the water for several superior reasons;

Ipad and the Galaxy share: 1ghz processor, multitasking, bluetooth, 30pin dock, ebooks reader.

Galaxy is superior: more customisable Operating System with thousands of free aps, a task manager and better use of screen. 3.2mp rear camera, 1.3mp front camera. acts as a phone on bluetooth or speakerphone, has flash support for web browsing, is lighter, more portable. double the RAM (short term memory). expandable storage up to 32gb. videocalling over wifi or 3G. Video playback includes DivX, XviD etc. no sync needed with itunes. copy and paste from any PC. HD video 1080p playback (raw bluray files). HDMI Out screen to HDTV. has GPS navigation (ipad only over 3G network, not 'official' GPS!). Cheaper. Useable Office programs - edit word execel, open PDF, on-the-go email, outlook sync and many more android adaption options.

Ipad is superior: larger (if you prefer), resolution : 1024 x 768 (galaxy is 1024 x 600 - barely any different). 64GB onboard storage in larger model. Arguably more stable system.

My view: Clearly despite fanboy popularity and "loyalty", Galaxy Tab is the superior tablet. HD video output to a HDTV, working on business documents, conference calling, on-the-go always-on internet, plays more file types, more free applications available, more customisable, upgradable storage option, phone option, drag and drop with any PC... I can't see how this is not the choice for business or leisure. Having used both the Ipad and the G.Tab, the screens are about as bright and sharp as eachother and given the amount the Galaxy can do I enjoyed the experience far more.

Recommended - apple has a lot to do to catch up with this beast, but 4 Stars because the price is rediculous. Curry's had it at 429 quid, earler this month, wait till January for the sales!

 Stunning

Before i begin, can I point out (re the review giving this 2 stars) Samsung have never said that this tablet was being aimed at the business user, and neither is the iPad to be fair. Why 2 stars though... very weird.
It's an amazxing peice of technology for it's 7 inches, and whose price is starting to reach affordable levels (shop around as i have seen it online for less than 430 UK sterling). This tablet makes the iPad seem dated already. It's much more portable than the ipad too. You don't even need a stupid mini/mico sim card, just input your sim from your phone (data web should be part of your phone contract)
An ideal size to read the latest paperbacks as it's about the same size as one. I could go on for far too long about his little beauty but don't listen to me just go to your local retailers and try one. and no I do not work for Samsung

 The best

Really good device with all those apps to choose from. It appears that it can do almost anything. Wifi, bluetooth, GPS,SIM card, Micro SD card, two cameras.The only small downside is the buttons on the side are easy to catch (better when I get a case)

 AAAAMAAAAZING!!!!!!!!!

It's okay for games and as a diary I wouldn't recommend this if you need a business tool though.
