Updated Galaxy Tab 10.1 Reviewed; Includes Honeycomb

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/revi...tm_campaign=rss

"When it released the original Galaxy Tab last year, Samsung became one of the first mainstream hardware vendors to deliver an Android tablet. With its new Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung kept the Galaxy Tab name and branding, but the new device has little else in common with its predecessor. Don't let the "10.1" fool you-this is all new."

The Galaxy Tab has proven itself to be one heck of a product! But it get's even better with the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 which includes Honeycomb! Check out this comprehensive review of the new Tab and let us know if you will be purchasing it!

Engadget Reviews The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: You Should Buy One

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 03:00 PM

http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/08/...ab-10-1-review/

"When we met with Samsung in late May, company representatives didn't seem entirely sure that the company would meet the rumored June 8th ship date here in the US, but lo and behold, it's done just that."

That's just a down right sexy piece of kit if you ask me. I have no regrets purchasing my Xoom but wow does this baby look nice. After reading the review I'd highly recommend any of you going through a mid-life crisis trade in your old tablet for a younger, thinner model. ;) Though when you really get down to it I'd rather have the Asus for its really awesome keyboard dock. But that's just me. What Android tablet do you guys want?

Samsung Announces Two New Galaxy Tabs

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android Software" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.mobilityminded.com/12603...MobilityMinded)

"The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 will feature Samsung own TouchWiz User Interface on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb platform. The Tab 10.1 weighs 595 grams and is 8.6 mm thin. The Tab 8.9 will weigh 470 grams and is also probably 8.6 mm thin. These Tabs will support HSPA+ and will have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity. Both Tabs include a 1GHz dual core processor."

Samsung has two nice looking tablets on the way. Due in June, one is 10.1" and the other is 8.9" and both have dual core processors are very thin. They will have some form of TouchWiz on top of Honeycomb. I'm not sure I like that but I don't think it would keep me way from them either. The models start with an 8.9" 16GB WiFi only version for $469. Make sure you follow the "Read" link for all the information. Are you interested in one of these new Tabs? My hunch is they'll be more popular than the Xoom but who knows what patches could come out for the Xoom by June.

Defend Against Scratches With the Otterbox Defender For the Galaxy Tab

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 05:30 AM

"Otterbox is well known for its protective cases for a lot of devices. One of the latest additions to the Defender Series is a Defender case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab. I have used several Otterbox products before and I must admit when my device is protected by a Defender case I don't have to worry it gets damaged or suffers any influences from outside."

Still looking for a case for your awesome Samsung Galaxy Tab? Well, check out this review on the Otterbox Defender. The case fully encloses your Tab (not waterproof though) without blocking the ports and buttons to protect it from bumps, small drops and scratches! Plus, it includes a build in stand for those moments when you want have both hands free for grabbing popcorn while watching a movie on your Tab. Sounds like a pretty sweet case to me!

Samsung Galaxy Tab Review: Best of the Android Bunch

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 12:30 AM

http://www.maximumpc.com/article/re...laxy_tab_review

"The Galaxy Tab is the most refined Android tablet we've tested, in large part thanks to its "Super TFT" screen. At 1024x600, this 7-inch display exceeds Android 2.2's maximum screen resolution of 854x480. While Android apps built to that standard spec will be "upscaled" on the Tab's screen, we didn't notice any ugly pixel interpolation during testing."

Still the best of the Android bunch, the Galaxy Tab does a great job taking Android where it wasn't really meant to go - yet. The inevitable comparisons to the iPad go on and on, with this generation of Android tablets still coming up second best. I'd love to get a Galaxy Tab, but, at about $600 off-contract, I'll have to wait until the new year. Do any of you readers think that a non-Apple competitor to the iPad will appear in 2011?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Now With More Nvidia: Will Tegra 2 Be then Next Snapdragon?

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 01:00 PM

http://blogs.barrons.com/techtrader...ge-tegra-order/

"Shares of Nvidia (NVDA) are up 13 cents, or 0.9%, this morning at $14.70 amidst buzz that its "Tegra" chip is gaining ground. I reported earlier that the Asian electronics trade pub DigiTimes did a report quoting anonymous sources saying the Tegra's second version, Tegra 2, may show up in numerous tablet computers next year."

This is some interesting news and quite surprising at that what with previous talk of Samsung working on their own dual core processor. According to rumors, Samsung has just placed a very large order for Nvidia's Tegra 2 CPU. So will we see a Tegra powered Galaxy Tab 2 or then next Galaxy S phone? The other tasty bit of news that might explain Samsung's actions is that Tegra 2 might be be the reference design for Gingerbread. 2011 is going to be a good year for Android.

A Million Galaxies Among Us

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 12:00 PM

http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2010/12...0-estimates-50/

"Samsung said it had moved one million Galaxy Tabs less than two months after launch and less than a month after its U.S. launch on T-Mobile on November 10."

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is on the fast track to becoming a household name. Samsung has reported that it has sold over one million Tabs and projects it will sell over 1.5 million by the end of the year. Not too bad for a device that has been on sale for less than 2 months!

The T-mobile Samsung Tab in the US can make and receive phone calls if you flash it. The ability to make phone calls would make this one handy device! Would you consider flashing your Tab to have the ability to use the phone?

Where in the Galaxy Will the Tab Go?

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 04:00 PM

http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2010/09...verizon-sprint/

"The latest news regarding Samsung's Galaxy Tab is no more solid than the price (which has, in another's words, been pinpointed to somewhere between $200 and $1200), but if these "people familiar with the matter" are to be believed, we'll see a multi-carrier rollout on September 16th."

The latest rumor has the Samsung Galaxy Tab making deals with three carriers - Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. And we still haven't heard a definitive price on the tablet either. The truth about the Tab's carriers and costs, are still out there, floating in the Galaxy.
