Galaxy Tab Samsung was launched last year in early September, and many specialized publications and bloggers have written that he found iPad godfather, embodied in this small tablet (190.1 x 120.5 x 12 mm), which looks like a book and weighed as a soap (380 g).
A first difference between Samsung Galaxy Tab and iPad is size. iPad is two times higher, but much thinner. True, for a notebook, iPad thickness (1.3 cm) is ideal, but for a device that supposedly keep him more in his hand is too big and your hands will get tired quickly.
From this point of view, Samsung Galaxy Tab is perfect. It is large enough to read a book on his screen and small enough to fit in your back pants pocket or jacket pocket.
In terms of brightness and color Tab Samsung Galaxy makes its debt with a vengeance. We compared the iPad and I managed to figure out if there are major differences between the two types of screen.
Samsung Galaxy Tab works with Android OS 2.2, which means that in terms of applications do not know anything in addition to any smartphone that runs on this operating system.
I have a HTC Legend, 500 Mhz processor, and the only difference that I found it between him and the Galaxy Tab is the speed of response which the tablet is, in terms of CPU, at least two times higher and I can not complain. Galaxy Tab has not frozen at all, even if I open at the same time, five to six applications.
As with any device with Android, Google services that go greased. Gmail is very easy to install, it’s fast, efficient, simple. Like other services: Google Maps, Contacts, Google Reader, Google Search, Latitude, Google Talk.
YouTube seems to have been created for Samsung Galaxy Tab. Videos can be seen more than decent. In fact, Tab Galaxy is ideal for watching movies when you go on a journey. I had no time feeling that I miss your eyes, as happens when I watch a video on the smartphone. On the other hand, unlike a smartphone, I kept at a sufficient distance from the eye without feeling that we lost any bit of image quality.
Diversity of applications that can be installed on Samsung Galaxy Tab is limited only by the number of applications available in the Android Market.
Connecting the PC was not so easy as I expected. In general, operating with Android phones, when you connect to your PC immediately appears a list with several options, including why the phone to be seen as a memory device. The Galaxy Tab are different, it meanders through the settings to the device.
Galaxy Tab has two cameras, one front has 1.3 megapixels and can be used for video calls, the rear has 3.15 megapixels. Galaxy Tab can and shoot at a resolution of 720×480. For these configurations, Galaxy Tab is reasonable photos, as well as the videos.
We are left with the feeling that the Galaxy can not replace a notebook tab. By the way, Internet pages are loaded into the mobile version, even if your device is able to run Flash.
So it can not replace a laptop, because it is limited, but can not replace any smartphone, because, although it can be used for phone calls, is too large and you comes in handy to use it for that.
Galaxy Tab is still a premium product, available to those with disposable income. But if everything will be the year 2011 PC tablet, which will have provided an explosion of offerings in this segment is likely to end up and almost anyone can afford.
