Home wifi is terrific for internet radio using Pandora and connecting to the internet using Google is ok but nowhere near my laptop/desktop, however connecting outside the home wifi such as Starbuck, Panara and even hotel wifi is easy but once connected surfing the web is poor and unreliable at best. At hotels where many use the wifi connection can be unreliable depending on how many people are connected. I connected to Southwest Airlines website for checking in but was fortunate because when I tried again the website was extremely slow and unstable and I was not able to connect. Graphics such as meteorology models for long range prediction come in great at home but outside my home wifi it absolutely will not connect. The bottom line is home wifi works great but elsewhere I would not recomment. Instead subscribe to a telephone line.
I was disappointed I could not find an online manual to learn how to navigate. Apple has terrific instructions online for their products and Samsung should provide and online manual. Otherwise the tablet is good for emails but only when using the home wifi.

I am using my Tab P3100 Since August 2012 and faced may problems with it:
1. Working slow.
2. Camera hanged, clicking black pictures.
3. going on standby when picking call or opening camera.
4. screen light flicking even auto adjust and power saving off.
5. Auto backup is not working in samsung account it stops after 60%.
I took support 3 times from Samsung service center and they deleted all of my stuff everytime.
I think I waste my money 19245 INR...
If anybody have any opinion please let me know.

ART CRUZ, 06 Dec 2012by the way, im from philippines.
Jb is not yet available here, but official jb from vodafon... moreHey Art,
I'm a fellow kababayan too. I just received an OTA Jellybean update just this afternoon (I think around 12nn, December 7, 2012). Just check for software updates, I think they might be rolling out those now. :)
I own this tab and have just received an official OTA software update (Jelly bean) from Samsung when I turned on my mobile data network connectivity (I'm from the Philippines, by the way). So far, so good. :) though I must say that I miss the old UI where in the status bar is located at the lower right side and the home/back/task manager buttons are located in the lower left side. The tablet now looks like a big phone (due to the orientation of the new UI being implemented in JB). But other than those small irks, I can say Samsung has made a great job updating this tablet to Jelly bean (though it's in 4.1.1 and not 4.2) :) All-in-all, it's a good tablet which is really worth its price coz it also serves as my secondary phone (from time to time)
