why is everybody hooked up with tablets or touch pc's or whatever you may call them, first the ipad, then this??,
now i have seen the new blackberry tablet called "playbook" on their site.
anyway-- which is better form those 3?, i mean, galaxy is just like any android touch phones and is there any other brand releasing a tablet phone or pc??
Well this certainly is the biggest phone, or the phone with the biggest screen ever built. ;D Respect to Samsung taking care of all the opponents offering phone screens of 4.x inches in size... ;D
Samsung galaxy tab needs a battery back-up solution. Hope samsung comes up with something real soon so that I could then really put the tab to good use.

The device is being deliberately not classed as a phone by the networks to use that as an excuse to grossly overcharge. The total cost of ownership for this device is about 2-3 times at the very least over the duration of a contract for a device that almost very close to the same price as an iPhone, offline. I could take my current voice and data activated SIM card and place it in this device with no ill effects. Considering this costs the same price as an iPhone, pretty much, why should I have to pay full price for this when I can get the iPhone for free as upgrade! The only answer I can up with is that is a con of huge magnitude!

Simply changing the screen size does not suddenly chnage what it is. It is just an excuse to bump an item that is already well overpriced IMHO.
Kenny, Just pop over to Johore and go to the nearest Maxis centre and you can get one, although I believe that it is probably going to launch in Singapore in a couple of days or maybe week. It's MYR2599. Good Luck

Any one co... moreI was in Singapore on the weekend and was checking out the computer stores on level 2 at Suntec city and came across this Samsung P1000 in one of the stores. I forgot the name of the store but it is not far from the escalator. It is on display in the front. The store keeper is selling it for S$1,400.00 It is an imported one from Europe.
people need to realise, this is not classed as a mobile phone, its like the Ipad, but it can make calls if like, so its better then the Ipad, battery is really good aswell

Any one could advice?
ady, 01 Nov 2010Awsome...smartphone + computer tablet.Well it would be if the network providers weren't effectively strangling it at birth! It is the same price as a top mobile phone and yet even with a contract you have to pay a purchase price upfront which is excessive to start with, plus the same price for the monthly contract price and in return get no free texts or minutes!!!! Who, ib the UK, is going to be stupid enough to be ripped off for this!!?? Even 3G dongle and a free laptop are better value!!! The phone is excellent but the greedy netowrk providers have killed it before it is even born!!!
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2010Ofcourse it hasnt got a dvd or bluray drive. its a tablet not a laptop. and as for android l... morei dont know how many apps there are available for this tab but i know that not all android apps work cos they are not designed to work on such a large screen so in a way it is limited to the few apps that are able to support the screen size.although ive read that android 3.0 will be tab friendly and make it work with all android apps available.
