I just got this unit today and have waited a long time to make my comments after owning the Apple iPad for some weeks as well till date. I can summerise my opinion in one sentence; This is the ideal tablet.
I have read people who don't even own the ipad write about the screen size - I can tell you right now that the 7" is the ideal screen size, Its an amazing discovery.
The swype input is nothing short of a masterpiece a very serious convenience especially with writing a review like this one.
The tablet comes loaded with everything an average user would ever need; news, maps and very importantly an email software that makes you even abandon the inbuilt google mail software.
Now to even know that you can send SMS messages, subscribe to and renew your 3G access and even make calls is simply mind blowing. Ipad is a complete waste of money, and I understand why this is more expensive than an ipad. This is a total tablet and a total communications solution while the ipad is an oversized handicap for any one needing a communications solution.
Please buy this; I have both this and the ipad and this is freedom while the ipad is simply a handicap and an oversized bondage. The ipad is a "special" rubbish while this is a sophisticated communications tool.
I own a HD2 and so I really appreciate the swype, I own the iphone 4 also (that's the only way you can load airtime on the dim to activate our renew a 3g subscription with an ipad)
I regret the waste of time and money on the ipad but the joy of this makes me really happy.
I hope this helps someone.

Apple iPad 3G vs. Samsug Galaxy Tab Video Review
I'm kinda concerned with the battery life of my tab.
Been using it for almost two weeks now and I always have to connect my charger every after 2 days to recharge it.
I recharge it when it reaches 10% battery life and it takes, on the average, 3.5 - 4hrs to fully recharge my Tab.
Here's my average daily usage of my tab:
Games: 15 - 30mins
Voice Calls: 15-30mins
Wifi + Browser: 10mins
SMS: 40 SMS/day
and here are other info:
Screen timeout: 30secs
I clear my RAM (level 2) every time I use an app that consumes a lot of RAM(games, gallery, etc...)
My first time charging: 4hrs
Is this normal or should I contact a local Samsung store to have my battery checked?
Are there any app savailable to help prolong my battery life?

Sadly, nobody seems able to start up the front camera( the one facing the user) for video call. Downloaded skype, which I find great from using on the PC - sadly, did not manage to start a video call - maybe it's me, but all reviews skirt around this issue. Anybody can assist to get the front camera running?

Pratik Manduskar, 03 Dec 2010Hi Guys,

First I would suggest you to think about your usage. If you are a software engineer I would suggest to buy a samsung net book and GT p1000.
Though GT P 1000 has many application and simply amazing tab+phone, Some of the things you cant do in that such as skype call. A net book has more more more features compare to this phone. It will be useful too.
I am not a very good fan of Samsung , but I am going to buy this mobile because of the features, applications and its performance. If you really want to buy it wait till January... you will get offer :-). By the way If you own a Galaxy tab p1000 it is always advisable to buy a samsung laptop or samsung netbook. A samsung netbook would cost only RS 20000 ( May be less than that depending up on location).
Overall i can say it is a nice phone compared to Apple tab ( Though it has a bigger screen it does nt have a phone function).
In Kolkata the price of Samsung Galaxy Tab price is 36,500 after discount. Iam expecting that there will be a drop in price by January.
After a long long analysis on I pad,Iphone 4, Samsung galaxy, Sony ericsson satio, Motorala milestone, Sony ericcson Xperia X10 and Blackberry bold, I CAME TO A DECISION TO PURCHASE SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB P1000 as it simply cannot be compared to other phones or tab.
By the way knowingly or unknowingly I had a samsung net book which gives 1000 % satisfaction for me. :-)
Revert me if you have any questions.
