> In reply to Phoneaddict @ 2010-09-24 14:44 from tu6} - click to readI agree that tablets are now used for both business and pleasure, but I think the galaxy tab is made for pleasure only. The 7in screen is just too small to replace my 10in laptop and I certainly wouldn't take it to clients and appear like I am toying around with one inappropriate gadgetry. Just not good for the business. I'd rather go for an iPad.

Now, for the phone part, I don't think I would want to replace my smartphone with this tab. Even if it fits in an unusually huge pocket like a lot of you are saying here, it's just not a phone, period. That makes the phone feature practically useless. Did I say this tab is made for pleasure only? Well pretty much everything you can do for fun using the tab, I can also do using my smartphone. So why waste money? Other that that, it's not cheap for a practically useless device.

Why the camera's pixel sucks with this size of screen 18 cm it should be at least 8 MP and 720p recording

Tablet is important nowadays. You can use is for business or pleasure. It's portable compared to laptops. This Samsung Tab is a bonus, I would say it's a three in one kind of thing ie. Mobile phone, lap top and a desk top.

PLUS at 380 grams, thats basically the weight of three cellphones. I have tried the ARCHOS 7 in my pocket so thats a far more CREDIBLE point of reference - and it doesn't work to carry around in the pocket. How can you use a book as an example? A book that size is flexible and doesn't weigh as much. I say it's YOU who speaks drivel.

Archos 7 = 203x107x12; Samsung Galaxy Tab = 190x120x12

Samsung recognized that current applications are not optimized for the Galaxy Tab.

Google already made clear a few days ago and now Samsung can not do anything but accept it and confirm it, Android Market applications are not optimized to run on the Galaxy Tab.

The reason that happens is as easy to understand and Google said it a few days ago is because of the Android version that exists today. Android 2.2 is only allowing maximum screen resolutions of 800 x 400 pixels.

Nice it has a graphics chip onboard. This will be up to par with the ipad or even better. The only stuff left is for developers to port games to android so that this wicked graphics chip could be utilized.

IT FIT! and i'm here in asia (whre d people r smaller in avrge). so i guess it'd slide right in to ANY INSIDE JACKET POCKETS of a westrn or a euopean 'n THAT'S A FACT! So, u were saying???
o, n yes u might hv 2 sweep d screen (not scratch, coz it's capasitve touchscreen rmembr?) while browsing d net, but it'd STILL b a whole lot diffrent xperience than browsing on a tiny smartphone screen.
But u'r right about it might not replace my selphone entirely n aftr checking out d archos 101 (tx btw, it's awsome)n i'm either gonna hv this or an archos + a sleek-sexy-bestrated-bestvalue4money-badaplatfor­med-phone, samsung wave, which i now think would b a fantastic combination 4 any gadget mania.

> In reply to JoE @ 2010-09-23 01:14 from Kxc4 - click to readWhat size jacket are you talking about that can fit a Galaxy tab??? Its like and A5 notebook or diary. The outside pockets on a blazer, YES but the inside pockets NO WAY. If I still have to constantly scratch away at the screen to pan across the webpage because the screen is small, then IT IS still like browsing on a phone, same level of inconvenience. And yes there have been 7 inch Netbooks, the first Netbook, the original Asus EeePC was 7 inch but the industry standard is now 10 inch, just go to any computer store. IPad is the size of a magazine, any messenger bag or student backpack will swallow it up happily. You like it because its like a phone - but it CANT replace your phone totally unless you are gonna answer EVERY call on your headset and always pull out that whole device to make a call. You STILL have to carry a regular phone. So whats the point? Now you have this tablet filling one pocket, then the other phone filling another pocket - REALLY??? That should be fun. And consider this - if you have to wear a specific piece of clothing to carry this around, how is that different form having to carry a small messenger bag across your chest? Sure it fits in the jacket (side pockets only), but what if you wanna wear a t-shirt? Not so portable now hey? The portability "advantage" of 7 inch over 10 inch simply doesn't exist. It's shrinking down the experience for no REAL benefit. Again I'm no fanboy, I'm just talking comfort for the intended use.
