i was surprise that this is a big phone..
specifications are nice but the physical size, i think its not that handy...
this phone might be a phone that can be compared to iphone if the size is somehow just the same...
I think samsung should come up with a smaller version, a handy version of this.. =)
How many hours is the battery power?
If Samsung use OLED ... am sure it will be longer right guys

the Apple hate is getting outta control , it gotta stop
why can't you people accept that Apple made something good once in your life ? Don't like iPad\iPhone , so what , don't buy Apple products , stop bad mouthing apple & get a life
it's seems that y'all forgat that Apple changed the commenication & entertainment industries with iPod in 2001 , iPhone in 2007 & iPad in 2010
do you remeber what the phones looked like in 2007 before the iPhone came out & the bad repation that the touch screen phones had (incluading samsung) ?
& no before you start talking back , I'm not an Apple fanboy , I'm a MileStone user , but I gotta say the Galaxy tap isn't so bad , the spec. Needs a litte boost
what's the point of the rear camera ? (so as the front it's gonna launch with Froyo ? As I recall Android OS doesn't support Video calls yet & Gingerbread isn't finished yet !!!)
there is a line between a Phone & a taplet shouldn't be crossed , Dell did that with the Streak & got lucky (5" screen is kinda acceptable compared to 7" +) , but you can't think you gonna be lucky every time (my family is saying : my 3.7" MileStone is too big)
When I saw the ipad for the first time i dreamed about an slightly smaller, lighter, more portable, cheaper and including a phone, camera and memory card slot ipad.
And now this is called Samsung Tab. exept for the price which is still a mystery.
So thank u Samsung, but i blame them for 2 thing: the camera must be up to date with at least 5 mp resolution and HD video, and the display why they didn't include their great Amoled display, although i can understand about the display for power concerns , but i cant find any excuse for the camera.
whatever they used to do great work with something missing like the Galaxy S which lacks a camera flash!!!
I am waiting for it
hahaha always the same reaction of those Fanboys "nothing will beat apple".
Geezzz wake up. Don't know why a device too big, too heavy, no USB, no microSD, no camera, no Flash-support, no phone, no DLNA, no real multitasking (the list goes on forever :))) should beat a device like the Galaxy Tab which has all these features.
dindey, 10 Sep 2010where'd you get ur info about the 300usd? is that on-contract price? that would be good news though.I got it fr gsmarena blog 'samsung plans to sell 10mill of g-tabs'. n by tht price i must say, if they distribute right, 10mill of d tabs will b sold b4 d end of d year. n i think by now, no1's going to buy an ipad

It's great. Thank you Samsung. Down apple.
Needs a better camera, though.
Hv u guys read d news? it's gonna go for only 200-300 USD! FOR REAL!!! d dreams r finally coming true... so by this, i guess it's fair to declare that the ipad is officially, history!
EAT THAT, APPLE!
This is a TOP OF THE RANGE PHONE...1 of its kind,u need to try it out guys,IT ROCKS..................
I fink this tab would be one of the best devices 2010. It contains everything you need in a device up to now. All we have to wait is the price, if the price is lower than US$600, It'll be the best seller when it comes to the market.
Okay, i have got both of these devices, and in the end it is very hard to make up my mind. but i do have tyo say that i like the Samsung better, Sleeker look. faster. and easier to use in general..... i think the ipad sorta rushed the job a bit, with all the errors i get.... =/... im unhappy Apple.
i think it won't have a great market because of the weight and size...too huge!
The portability itself is just sweet! i can simply take it anywhere i want. full web browsing xperience is going to b max in this tablet. it has an office feature too, removable storage, video calling on a 7" screen and a pretty nice camera that also shoot a pretty nice video (though not an hd but it's alot bettr than nothing right?) + full phone functionality all in ONE gadget. sweet. it's gonna make me proud to hv one. u can't possibly mistaken one with an ipad.
